Placement Trainee Manager Scheme 2017-2018
Quench your thirst for knowledge
Join our Placement Trainee Manager Scheme!
This 52 week Placement Trainee Manager scheme will provide you with hands on experience in a retail environment and must be undertaken as part of your degree.
We want to make Majestic the only place people think about when they want to buy wine. So, if you’ve got a passion for wine, customers and operational excellence, we want you to apply and start an exciting and ambitious Placement year with the UK's largest wine specialist.
What will I be doing?
Our job at Majestic is to help customers discover and buy wines that they will love! You’ll start your placement at the heart of our business as a Placement Trainee Manager.
Put simply, you’ll spend your time -
Delivering exceptional service to every customer, in-store and out on deliveries in the van, so they keep coming back.
Using your growing wine wizardry to help us dispel the belief that wine is a pompous product, bring wine to life and help our customers find and buy wines they love.
Helping to run a smooth operation, ensuring your store is spick and span, fully stocked and a great place to shop.
Being a team player and contributing to your store success and sales targets.
Learning. With plenty of hands on experience and regular visits to the Support Centre, we’ll arm you with all the knowledge you need to become a future retail guru. As for wine, through training, tastings and study we’ll give you all the tools and support you need to sit the WSET Level 3, and pass with flying colours to become a fully fledged wine wizard.
At Majestic we are…
- People people. A natural leader, you’re humble, more than happy to roll your sleeves up and muck in, and you enjoy working hand in hand within a close-knit team. And of course you like having fun.
- Customer champions. You live, think and breathe customer.
- Wine lovers. You certainly don’t have to be an expert, but you have a real enthusiasm for learning about wine, and sharing that with our customers and your team.

- Committed. From working busy weekends to studying for industry-recognised wine qualifications, it’s a long way from a Monday to Friday, 9 till 5 desk job.
- Passionate. We’re a customer business, a retail business, a wine business and a people business. We love all 4, and you will too.
