Distillery Technician (Trainee)

Want to Craft Untamed Spirits?

You may have heard there’s a gutsy little distillery opening in town soon.

That’s us and we’re in the market for a full-time trainee Distillery Technician.  No experience is needed, as we’ll teach you everything you need to know on the job.

What is most important is that you’re 18 years or over, are an all-round good sort and a hard worker.  This is because we want the distillery to be really successful and create solid jobs, and we think to do that we need to all play nicely together.  This’ll help create a place that locals and visitors will enjoy spending time in (and will rave to their friends about).  And that’s all good for Reefton.

There’s a few other things you’ll need to have for this job, like an inquiring mind, searing attention to detail and you’ll be comfy on a computer using MS Office and our inventory system.  Ideally you will have enjoyed maths and science at school; stuff like chemistry; and you’ll enjoy chipping away at a challenge until you find a solution.

You’ll be involved in the full grain to glass journey of a premium spirit; from foraging for botanicals in swamps in the rain, to bottling and labelling, through to cleaning ‘George’ so that he stays shiny.

You can apply on our Facebook page by clicking the APPLY NOW button in the job notice or by emailing your application to patsy@www.reeftondistillingco.com before 5.00pm, Monday 9th July.
