Careers at
Laithwaite's

Join a winning team

There are a lot of great reasons to love working at Laithwaite's ...

... not least that we're the most successful wine merchant on the planet. A family run business for over 50 years we sell more wine, to more people, than anyone else.

Our secret? We realised that not only did we need to get out there, meet the winemakers and discover the world's best wines for ourselves ... we had to take the customer on the journey with us.

We do that with great communication, un-stuffy writing and tastings for the customers to meet the winemakers themselves. You too, could be part of that journey.

There's a great working culture at Laithwaites. Our customer events are run entirely by in-house staff, we have opportunities for wine education, regular staff tastings and more. You'll even get a chance to visit our own château in Bordeaux and help with harvest at our own, award-winning Wyfold Vineyard in Oxfordshire.

You'll find plenty of opportunities for career development, too – as you'll discover if you check out the biographies below. So if you'd like to be a part of our winning team, we'd like to hear from you.

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 Laithwaite's 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 Laithwaite's 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 Laithwaite's 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 Laithwaite's 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.
