Do you want to create wine magic? We are seeking a hands-on Sommelier

 

Dining at Norda Oslo should be a sensory experience. Here you get ingredients from the Nordic kitchen combined with exciting flavors and spices from various parts of the world, a selection of top-tier wines, and – of course – the most breathtaking view Oslo has to offer! At Norda, you not only get locally sourced food, you get unsourced food! Yes, that's right, herbs and vegetables are actually grown on the roof of Clarion Hotel® The Hub and make their way to Norda to create an outstanding and unique menu that can be offered to all guests. A farm on a rooftop in the middle of Oslo - who would have thought? See you on the 13th floor!

 

What will you do?

As a Sommelier, you will ensure that the restaurant has a clear wine profile and create an unforgettable experience for the restaurant's guests together with your colleagues.

 

Your main responsibilities include:

  • Creating and updating wine lists in collaboration with the Restaurant Manager.
  • Monthly inventory counting.
  • Collaborating with the booking coordinator on beverage selection.
  • Training and developing staff on the wine list.
  • Purchasing, assisting the company with importer agreements, negotiating prices with suppliers.
  • Leading and driving upselling in the department and being a wine inspirer for colleagues.
  • Assisting with other waiter tasks as needed.
  • Following liquor serving laws.
  • Ensuring that the service level is satisfactory and in line with Norda's strategy & goals.

 

The position involves shift work on weekdays and weekends. The Sommelier reports to the Restaurant Manager.

 

Who are we looking for?

 

We are seeking a skilled Sommelier who will be a central part of our operation and play an active role in the presentation, pairing, and sale of wine.

You are professionally skilled and focused on delivering high quality in everything you do.
