Head Sommelier

Company: Barangaroo House

Location: NSW

Barangaroo House 
Barangaroo House has now been open for 12 incredible months and has brought a unique contemporary dining and drinking offering to Sydney, coupled with million dollar waterfront views.

Let us walk you through the three floors..

House Bar

A casual indoor-outdoor bar and eatery that encircles the building on the ground floor. Think accessible, casual, fun and energetic – perfect for strolling off the busy streets to enjoy a fancy kebab fresh of the spit.


The 180-seat restaurant on the first level where Head Chef, Cory Campbell shows off his creativity and skill on the wood-fired grill. Turning fine-ding to fun-dining!


Sydney’s newest rooftop bar with views to the city skyline and Darling Harbour. A champagne-focused drinks list lends itself to a small-plate menu of caviar tins, Sydney rocks and sea urchin popping up in unlikely places!


The Role
We are looking for a Head Sommelier to drive the wine program across the entire Barangaroo House.

With the support of an industry-leading Group Sommelier Matt Dunne, and from the wider business – you will be given autonomy to create lists that is your own, a chance to have some fun and not necessarily always ‘play it safe’.


Who are you?
To be successful in the role – and more importantly, enjoy it – you will be the epitome of fun-dining!
You won’t take yourself too seriously, you will ooze charm and charisma on the floor, building rapport with our guests and truly creating a unique and memorable experience.

Moreover, you will be passionate about bringing both guests and staff on the journey. A passion for training and inspiring your team plus the wider FOH team across all floors is paramount to the success of this role!


What’s on offer?

  • Incredibly competitive remuneration package for the right candidate
  • Lots of perks including access to one-of-a-kind training, industry-related trips and courses, support on extra wine education, great invite-only events & widely anticipated annual ‘do’s’ with the group.
  • Opportunities for growth within the company – real succession – proven by those within the business already… see it for yourself!
  • Christmas bonus (and we’re certainly not talking coal in a sock).
