Vineyard Manager Position - Kent

We require an enthusiastic, hands-on and well-organised vineyard manager to initially establish and then manage a brand new 100 acre vineyard on the North Downs, Kent.  Phase 1 is planned for Spring 2018 with Phase 2 in 2019.

Ideally, candidates will have:

  • A minimum of 3 years proven vineyard management experience, preferably cool climate.
  • A can-do attitude and keen eye for detail.
  • Ability to work flexible hours as the job demands.
  • A tertiary education in Viticulture.
  • Experience with vine health monitoring, diagnosis, treatments and record keeping.
  • PA1, PA2 and PA3 spray certificates.
  • Confidence with tractor driving and use of vineyard machinery and equipment.
  • Experience with managing and implementing Health and Safety procedures.
  • Ability to prepare and execute work plans on time and budget.
  • Ability to lead and work as part of a team.
  • Experience with managing large teams of contract workers.

Reporting to the Head of Viticulture, this is a hands-on position that requires the successful candidate to work outside most of the time leading the in-house team and contract workers.  The new vineyard will form part of a group of vineyards on the north-downs and as such will benefit from being part of the regional management structure and the wider vineyard team.  

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a career with an ambitious, dynamic and fast growing company.

Pay according to experience.
