Wine Specialist / Sommelier

We are looking for an enthusiastic and interesting individual to join our Food & Beverage Service team as a Supervisor and Wine Specialist / Sommelier

In 2020 we will reposition our cuisine to reflect the style of our new Head Chef Dorian Janmaat, who joins us following 3 years as Head Chef at Raymond Blanc’s 2 x Michelin starred Restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Dorian will define a new culinary future when The Idle Rocks re-opens in February.

Based predominately at the Idle Rocks, the successful applicant will be charismatic, have excellent attention to detail, experience of working in a similar type of restaurant, and a minimum of WSET level two qualification.

This is not just any wine specialist job, it is an exciting opportunity to inspire and enable others whilst making a significant impact to wine sales via recommendations and pairing that enhance the overall dining experience.

Are you a competent restaurant supervisor with a passion for wine that is infectious?

Is the thought of curating a list that will complement Dorian’s menu the sort of thing you hoped the New Year might bring?

If so we would love to hear from you.


How to Apply:

Please apply with your CV, via email to and please attach a covering letter telling us your salary expectations along with the following:

The top ten wines you feel would complement a menu that is firmly rooted in this location and why.

Let us know the size of your most recent wine list and the achieved gross profit margin.
