Interested in joining our family of wine nuts?

We’ve travelled from Bolton to Bordeaux to Barossa and everywhere in between since 1969, going further than anyone else to find great wines for our customers. We go off the beaten track to find unsung winemakers and unexpected places because they’re the inspiration for the best stories and the tastiest wines.

We are people people. We’re wine nuts, pure and simple! When we’re not out there finding great wines, we’re enjoying them just like our customers.

We have great working culture here and there are plenty of opportunities for growth and development at all levels.

So, if you love adventure as much as we do and are ready to start a new one, we’d love to hear from you.

Check out our current vacancies below.

Catherine Ryder

I work as part of The Wine Buying Team to ensure our wines look as great as they taste and the labels meet legal requirements. I get to speak with colleagues and suppliers all over the world (occasionally visit them) and also try lots of new wines on a regular basis - it's really not a bad job at all!

(Editor's note - Catherine also organises the popular office 'cake club'!)

Daisy Shepherdson

It's been over 10 years since I nervously started my first job in the wine world. In that time I've moved through the ranks, from call centre to Marketing and eventually Merchandising where I lead our promotional merchandising team. My personal highlight so far? Being part of the team that won Best Wine Retailer and Best Online Retailer at the International Wine Challenge. Oh and you really can't beat our weekly Friday tastings. Why work anywhere else?

Richard Ollerenshaw

I started work at Laithwaites back in 1998. Since then I've seen the company grow and develop in all kinds of ways, many of which I would like to think have helped shaped and develop me. In fact, I met my wife through Laithwaites and we've gained many good friends along the way. The company continues to be family led and to this day still retains its passion for delivering great wine - in every sense of the word.

Stephanie Voisin

I started out at Laithwaites as a summer temp 16 years ago and since then I've been a Wine Advisor, Wine Advisor Team Manager, Wine Advisor Campaign Planner and now I am a Business Analyst within IT. I consider myself really fortunate to have worked at Laithwaites for so long - I've been able to progress my career at the same time as growing my family and have made some great friends along the way.
