International Wine Challenge: IWC Crew

Published:  05 September, 2017

The IWC is now recruiting for IWC Crew to help with the management and implementation of IWC2018 Tranche 1 & 2. We will need staff in our warehouse and tasting venue at the Kia Oval, Kennington, Dates are: Tranche 1 - 30th October to 18th November 2017 and Tranche 2 – 19 March to 24 April 2018.

The right applicants will possess a can-do attitude, be hardworking and motivated as well as being able to work as part of an internationally diverse team. There will be wines from all over the world to unpack, collate and prepare before the week long tasting process. It’s gruelling work, long hours but very rewarding and informative. You need to be physically fit and able to lift hundreds of cases of wine weighing around 15KG.

Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about wine, or if you believe you are an expert. We need all abilities from carrying boxes (which there is a lot of) as well as help to identify wines. Everyone does the same roles, and they change frequently.

We will provide you with a really warm puffa jacket and t-shirts to work in. Please note the normal working hours will be 9am to 5.30pm each day during set up and 8am to 8pm when we are tasting as a minimum, and some weekends too. But you will get the opportunity to taste wines from all over the world and meet many wine trade professionals.

Interviews will be taking place on the 4th and 5th October at the WSET building. You need to be available for a minimum of 3 weeks in November, or up to the full 6 weeks in March/April.
