Description

We are offering an opportunity to spend 6 months working as a General Assistant in a beautiful boutique vineyard involved in all aspects of grape growing, wine production and hospitality.

 

Nutbourne is a long established single estate, family run wine producer situated near Pulborough in West Sussex, England. We have 10 hectares under vine and all aspects of production take place on site. We have achieved considerable success in both National and International competitions and enjoy a fine reputation as a leading UK producer.

 

Each year the vineyard owners take on 2 assistants for this summer season – May to October.

 

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to help with all aspects of the vineyard operation. This includes working in the vines, winery, cellar door, tours and events. Our team members work approximately 40 hours per week over 5 days including most Saturdays throughout the summer. The job will culminate in the Grape Harvest in October - this is a fantastic time of year, hard work but highly rewarding.

 

We are looking for people with knowledge or qualification in Viticulture, but more important, enthusiasm to become part of our motivated, hard working team. Previous General Assistants have gone on to permanent roles in the London wine trade, joined other UK producers or travelled to do similar similar paid work-experience in other wine regions around the world.

 

This is great opportunity for the right people to experience all aspects of a vineyard business, working at the forefront of the English Wine industry.

 

Please note employees will be expected to find and pay for their own accommodation in the local area. Full details of the job description will be discussed at interview.
