Graham’s Lodge Now Recruiting

Graham's Lodge Team: Emiliano, Bruno, Carolina, Raul, Rosalina, Serafim, Luis

With the start of the new year it is time for Graham’s Lodge to hire additional staff for the 2012 tourist season.  Would you like to join us?

The blogger asked members of the current Lodge team what they think is most important for applicants to bring to the job.  Raul, who has been with Graham’s for 5 years, promptly replied “A passion for wine and for people.”  Watching and listening to him lead tours or serve wine, he certainly has both!  Rosalina, who has been at the Lodge for 15 years said Teamwork was very important, then added “You have to like, no, you have to love working with the public.”  Emiliano, who has been with us since last March, also emphasised the need to be customer driven and a great communicator to be an ambassador for Graham’s.

If you have that passion for customer service and love to work with people, but worry you don’t know very much about Port… don’t worry.  When you are hired, you will receive training and experience far beyond what many specialist wine courses offer.  Last March the blog reported on the induction training in a series of articles – start by reading about the 2011 Lodge Team and follow them through every session of the week.

You may also want to look at the Graham’s Lodge website, which includes a map and directions if you would like to visit us to drop off your CV.

Can you captivate Graham's visitors as Emiliano (right) is clearly doing?

Please read the job description below and either stop by the Lodge with your CV or respond directly to the email below – using the usual symbols for the address (they are spelled out here to avoid spam).  Please do not use the blog comments fields to indicate your interest or the blogadmin email address, as it will only slow down your inquiry – contact the Lodge directly with your questions and your CV.  Good luck!
