The Liberty Wines Apprentice scheme is a diverse and challenging two-year programme, which comprises working across, and within, all aspects of one of the UK’s leading wine distributors. Since its launch in 2007, we have seen a phenomenal response to the scheme and some outstanding candidates that have built longstanding careers at Liberty Wines.

Unique in the industry, our programme offers a detailed yet wide-ranging experience of many departments within the organisation, as well as sponsoring the WSET Diploma Level 4 and funding two vintages in the northern and southern hemispheres. The ideal candidate will have some knowledge and experience of the wine trade, received a WSET Level 3 qualification (or in the process of studying), and be able to demonstrate the potential to thrive at Liberty Wines longer term.

Applications for the 2024-26 Liberty Wines Apprentice are now open! Please visit Current Vacancies to read more and apply. The closing date is Friday 21st June 2024.


The programme runs for two years, during which time the candidate will study for WSET Diploma by block release, sponsored by Liberty Wines.

The apprenticeship includes placements such as Customer Services, Brand Management, Events, Marketing, Sales and Operations.

There is a month in Europe helping with a vintage during the first year, two months’ vintage in the southern hemisphere during the second year, followed by an exciting project which brings the apprenticeship to a close.
