Trainee Operations Coordinator - Caskshare - 17956

Contract: Permanent, Salary: £19,500 per annum, Closing Date: Friday 19 August


Caskshare is a fast growing platform that allows customers the ability to buy bottles of ultra-unique, rare and interesting whisky, directly from the cask. We give customers the chance to buy whisky from brand new and established distilleries that otherwise are normally only reserved for those that can afford to buy the whole cask. We want to democratise the ownership of single cask spirits. Everyone that wants to, can get involved, one bottle at a time.

The platform creates life-long relationships between producers and whisky enthusiasts. Our mission is to take the exclusive and make it within the reach of everyone, through our highly immersive digital platform that engages producers as well as whisky drinkers. Our Caskshare platform and community provide distilleries and cask owners with a new route to market whilst we take on all aspects of packaging, bottling and shipping.

Ultra-premium whisky is a high growth sector; our goal is to bring innovation in online consumer-engagement to this growth opportunity. Together, with our own marketing campaigns, we collaborate with our distillery and cask owner partners on joint marketing campaigns to grow sales collaboratively.

You have an opportunity to join the Operations team helping coordinate logistics of both cask and bottle goods.
