Sommelier – 2 Hat Fine Dining

Company: Aria Sydney

Location: NSW

Aria Sydney
Matt Moran’s signature fine dining restaurant, with iconic views of Sydney Harbour since 1999.

Having gone a complete refurbishment in the last 2 years, enjoy an exciting all new restaurant (nothing has remained… not even the kitchen sink), that still has the heart and soul of what Aria is known and loved for.  Think opulence, polish, location – whilst still remaining true to the roots of approachable, fresh and fun.

With some incredible new faces at the helm including Head Sommelier Alex Kirkwood, an incredible new Head Chef Joel Bickford, and GM who has stepped up internally – a real ‘changing of the guard’ has happened in ARIA.  Join the restaurant in this new chapter, help bring new ideas to life and be a part of an all-star team of passionate industry professionals.

Be heavily involved in the ‘back of house’ operations – ordering, stock rotation, cellar management, invoice control – take ownership and really learn the ropes!


The Offer

  • Incredibly competitive remuneration package for the right candidate with some of the industries best tips around.
  • 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!
