VSF is a specialist wine supplier to the yachting industry based on the Côte d’Azur in the South of France. This year marks our 25th anniversary and we are looking to add a talented Wine Consultant to our sales team. This primarily office-based role will be an ideal opportunity for someone looking to develop a career in the wine trade, dealing with some of the finest wines in the world from our extensive stock holdings. As a seasonal business, the ideal candidate would also be able to run wine courses, tastings and events for yacht crew during the quieter months. This varied and interesting position will suit a passionate and confident person who enjoys building personal relationships and shares our customer-focussed service ethic.

 

Principal roles:

  • Responding to customer enquiries by email and telephone.
  • Preparing quotes, including suggesting wine selections for on board cellars as well as individual charters or events.
  • Order processing using Sage, creating sales orders, picking lists and invoicing.
  • Providing tasting notes and food matching suggestions to accompany wine orders.
  • Organising deliveries with the warehouse and logistics team, liaising with transport agents and booking couriers.
  • Arranging tax free deliveries with Customs Agents.
  • Outside the busy yachting season, organising and delivering wine courses, tastings and events for yacht crew.

 

Key skills/qualifications:

  • WSET qualified, preferably to Diploma level.
  • WSET certified wine educator an advantage.
  • A can-do attitude to customer service.
  • Strong problem-solving skills.
  • Attention to detail and ability to multitask.
  • Excellent communication skills in English, with a good working knowledge of French.
  • Proficient in MS Word, Excel and Outlook. Knowledge of Sage a plus but not a requirement.
