Roebuck Estates

Roebuck Estates is a premium producer of exceptional sparkling wines, and we are seeking an Events Coordinator to work closely with the marketing team to plan and execute a calendar of consumer events for Roebuck Estates. This is a new role and there will be the opportunity for the candidate to help shape the strategy as well as deliver the programme. The events will be based both at Roebuck’s main vineyard as well as attending major consumer events with a dedicated Roebuck offering. Roebuck Estates is at a very exciting time in its development which will present many varied opportunities and will require lots of flexibility.

The role is full-time (40 hours p/w) with extensive weekend work. The role will be based at the main vineyard site near Petworth, and the candidate is expected to work from the office when not out at external events. Some home working may be possible, but it is unlikely that this can be set regularly. The role will report to the Marketing and Communications Manager but will be expected to liaise across most functions in the business. We are currently looking to fill a full-time position; however, candidates looking for a significant part-time role, i.e. 3-4 days per week, will also be considered.
