Bancroft Wines is a well-respected premium wine company serving a wide network of on- and off-trade accounts.

Our commitment to supplying outstanding wine is reflected in the quality, variety and competitiveness of our extensive portfolio which we have recently expanded following the acquisition of Mason & Mason Wines (a niche organic wine specialist). We represent many exemplary second-generation wine makers and boast a superb French range, an impressive Italian and Spanish selection and a stand out New World offering.

We specialise in the on-trade and independent off-trade, supplying a wide range of customers from owner-operated establishments, fine-dining and Michelin-starred restaurants to gastro pubs, catering companies and restaurant groups. In the off-trade we work with a network of independent retailers, wholesalers, regional and Fine Wine merchants located throughout the UK. We also have an experienced Private Client department who offer customers expert advice and guidance on all aspects of Fine Wine including En Primeur purchasing and specialist long term storage.

We are looking to recruit a dynamic London on-trade sales professional with a proven track record of sustained sales achievement to work alongside our existing sales team and further expand our business in the capital (focused sales territory within the M25).

The role requires a self-motivated, experienced and well connected wine industry sales professional with the ability to deliver and develop new business opportunities primarily in the premium casual dining on-trade sector.


Key responsibilities will include:

  • Securing new profitable accounts with a focus on premium on-trade outlets and groups
  • Strengthening and developing relationships with existing customers to grow sales and achieve new listings
  • Building volume of key agencies
  • Developing new markets and implementing fresh strategies


Requisite Skills:

  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in a UK on-trade focused sales role
  • Proven track record in successfully delivering sales growth, particularly within the M25
  • Capacity to maximize existing relationships to introduce new customers
  • Ability to achieve challenging targets
  • Detailed wine knowledge (WSET Diploma level)

This is a fulltime role requiring flexibility to work around the commitments of the business. The successful candidate will ideally live in London.

Bancroft Wines operates from a high quality office in London Bridge, SE1 and offers a competitive remuneration and benefits package.
