What do you need to know about Adnams and our team?

Not only do we make amazing award-winning beers and spirits from our home in Southwold, we also have an extensive range of wines which we sell not only online but in our lovely shops across the region and sell in our stunning pubs and hotels.

Our buying team is looking to grow with a Procurement Assistant – Wine.  This an exciting new role that will support our Wine Buyer with the coordination of logistics and all areas of Wine procurement.  The Buying team understand the value of every supplier and customer and work hard to maintain these relationships.
