Majestic Wine are seeking to recruit a vibrant, people focused Retail Assistant Manager for our thriving Bicester store. Gone are the days where retail has to be boring and buying wine is a stuffy industry just for the rich and famous! Majestic Wine is all about customer experience and what better way to engage with customers than opening a bottle at our tasting counter?
Bicester is located on the edge of Oxford in one of the fastest growing towns in the UK. It caters for a diverse & loyal customer base in a very affluent area of the country, alongside a number of commercial accounts.

I am looking for someone who is fantastically organised, enjoys running tasting events and is on point with their social media skills. The new Assistant will be a champion of new accounts and local partnerships.
You should have a keen interest when it comes to developing and inspiring the four strong store team, so good communication skills are a must. This store is suited to someone who wants to take on a challenge.
We need someone who is full of energy, great at building long-lasting customer relationships and would enjoy running exciting and fun tasting events!
We are looking for a real team player who isn’t afraid to roll their sleeves up and lead by example. We want someone who takes pride in engaging, motivating and developing a high performing team and can see the value in doing their best, so together, the whole team succeeds.
