2023 Vintage Crew - Cellar Positions
Company: Links Winery Ltd
Uploaded: 22 September 2022
Closes: 22 October 2022
Links Winery is beginning the first stages of recruitment for Harvest 2023!
We are looking for hard-working, team players to join us in the cellar for the upcoming harvest season, beginning in February.
Several positions are available, ranging from entry-level Cellar Hands, to Shift Supervisors with a few previous harvests under their belt.
Thorough training will be provided to ensure your confidence and safety in working in this exciting, fun, and fast-paced environment. You just need to bring your eager attitude!
We are seeking:
- People with skills, training, and experience in the wine industry
- People with no previous winery experience, but interested in the wine industry and keen to learn
We are a family-owned, medium-sized winery based in Hawke’s Bay. The winery was established in 2008 and is still owned and operated by the founding family. Our friendly, multi-national production team brings winemaking expertise from around the world. We strongly value diversity and inclusion of both, our fellow Kiwis and our overseas friends.
Often referred to as “Wine Country,” Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s oldest wine region. We are lucky to have sunny days, fertile soils, and a warm climate. If wine-tasting is your thing, the region holds 76 wineries and 38 cellar doors, so the toughest decision you will have to make is where to start. On top of boasting a desirable wine culture, Hawke’s Bay also has a growing culinary scene and hosts many food/wine/music events starting in the summer and carrying through until the end of the harvest season.
The job commences in February with 8-hour shifts, 5 days a week. Since the start date depends on the nature of the season, we don’t have an exact date now, but we will definitely be in contact with you once you are hired.
The winery operates 24/7 during the peak of harvest season. You can expect to work a 10-12-hour shift, 6-7 days per week, with scheduled days off. Luckily, we have an energetic and optimistic team, and their goal is to make your experience as fun, educational and enjoyable as possible.
We will kick off Vintage 2023 with a welcome BBQ and end the season with a well-deserved party. Harvest Meals and weekly treats are provided during the longer shifts to keep the team energised. We also like to share beers, wines, and laughs once the shift has finished.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, please apply now!
Only people eligible to work in this country should apply for this position. Please provide evidence of your work visa or citizenship.
