Q. I’m not a graduate. Can I still apply?

A. Yes. You don’t need to have a degree to apply.  If you’ve got relevant experience and you think that you’d be a great fit with the Majestic team then we’d absolutely love to hear from you

Q. Do I need to know about wine in order to work for Majestic?

A. You will need to have a genuine enthusiasm and passion for wine but you don’t need to be an expert. Our training and your team will take care of that.

Q. What’s the salary at Trainee Manager level?

A. Trainee Manager starting salaries are between £20,248 and £23,290, depending on location. And there’s a store performance related bonus on top as well.

Q. Is there a closing date for applications?

A. We recruit year round, whenever we have openings in our stores. You can either apply for a specific vacancy if there’s one local to you, or if you register for email job alerts then we will contact you the next suitable role comes up – we’re always on the lookout for great people so we shouldn’t keep you waiting too long.

Q. Do I have to relocate in order to work for Majestic?

A. As part of our retail programme you’ll need to gain experience in more than one store. You’ll normally spend a year or so as a Trainee Manager in either one store or two different stores, before moving on to another one or two during your time as an Assistant Manager. It all depends on where you’re based, but you may need to be willing to move, to be able to find the right opportunities to progress up the ladder more quickly.

Q. What happens if I don’t have a driving licence?

A. Unfortunately we won’t be able to accept your application for a Trainee Manager position as all our team need to be able to drive. From time to time we may recruit Sales Assistants or Stock Operatives that do not need to drive so look out for these positions.

Q. What happens if I have a driving licence but haven’t held it for a year?

A. Don’t fret, you can still apply once you hit 10 months, and if you’re successful you can start in store as soon as you’ve passed the one year mark.

Q. I’ve held my driving licence for over a year but it isn’t a UK licence. Can I still apply?

A. Yes. Holding a foreign licence is absolutely fine, as long as it’s valid in the UK too. All you need to do is convert it to a UK license
within 3 months of joining the team. The DVLA can help you with how.

Q. I graduated over 5 years ago. Can I still apply?

A. Absolutely. The fact that you will have gained extra work and life experiences since graduating is something we see as a bonus.

Q. I want to meet you and find out more. Are you at any Career events where I can do this?

A. Yes. We attend many graduate fairs and career events all across the UK and we’d love to meet you at one of them. The next on our schedule are <INSERT DATES>
