Company: Aria Restaurant

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 talent at the helm including Head Sommelier Alex Kirkwood, an impressive new Head Chef Joel Bickford, and General Manager Patrick Agostinelli – 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.

The Role
Join an incredibly knowledgeable wine team who are experts in what they do, and work hard to take their guests on the journey.

This is a service-focused role, with plenty of scope to learn the ropes back of house (ordering, stock take etc)

To be successful in this role, you will need to have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in wine, ideally from a fine-dining service background.

The Offer

  • Incredibly competitive remuneration package for the right candidate with some of the industry’s 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!
