The new Decanter 360 Academy, aimed at increasing diversity and inclusivity in the wine world, is now open for applications.
Find out more and apply here.
We’re looking for our first Decanter 360 Academy Trainee – somebody with real enthusiasm for wine, who is looking to take their first steps in a wine industry career.
We recognise there is still a lot of work to be done within the wine industry to be fully diverse and inclusive, and we want to do our bit to improve that. We also recognise that the wine industry can seem very daunting from the outside.
That is why we have created our Decanter 360 Academy scheme.
If you’re interested in the world of wine but don’t know where to start, this might just be the opportunity for you.
Our 360 Academy will offer one person from an under-represented background* the chance to gain valuable experience – while getting paid a full London Living Wage salary – working across every department of the Decanter organisation.
* this is by no means an exhaustive list, but this includes people from ethnic minorities, people of colour, those with physical health/disability, mental health issues, sensory impairments, learning disabilities, neurodivergence, and those from LGBTQIA+ or traveller communities.
The successful candidate will also work towards completing a wine-related qualification to help kickstart their wine industry career.
The world of wine media is an incredibly exciting and varied part of the wider wine industry. You will work with our brilliant team across the entire Decanter brand including in the editorial, sales, marketing and events/awards operations teams. As you’ll see, we’re a really diverse business with a whole range of products and services, and you’ll learn about them all..
At the end of the 12-month Academy programme, if we have a vacancy available, you’ll have the chance to join our team permanently. At the very least you’ll have gained a year of great experience and some certifications behind you to get you started in your career.
At Decanter, we’re proud to be owned by Future, a leading global multi-platform media company. Future connects people to their passions through the high-quality content we create and the innovative technology we pioneer.
Applications are now open and will close on Friday 20 May 2022.
