Sommelier & Wine Sales Assistant needed in the Maldives.
Will be working under 2 superiors during the first phase. Main duties include sales and marketing of an international wine portfolio, basic wine training at resort islands along with relevant administrative tasks. We require a person that can travel and live in Male, the capital island of the Maldives for 2 years minimum. A person that has knowledge and an in-depth understanding on international wines, NOT only SA and new world wines. PR, administrative skills above the standard average is required, along with the ability to work in a close knit team. Fluent English is a must. The market is demanding in many ways and a well travelled individual that can easily adapt to a foreign culture will be best suited. Lots of travelling will be involved throughout the Maldives islands, sometimes 2-3 times a week, other times not at all for 2-3 weeks. Life in Male is not the picture perfect Maldives you see on postcards, so if you’re in it for a holiday, don’t bother to contact us. There will be a quiz on international wine knowledge as well as part of the interview process. Fixed salary of US$1800, increased to US$2000 after 3 months probation. If you are married with a family, best not to apply as Male is no place for a family unfortunately.
