Wine Consignment Operations Associate
July 18, 2012 8:29 AM

Internationally prominent wine auction house and retailer based in downtown Chicago seeks organized, analytical thinker with good communication skills. Our employees share a philosophy that values mutual respect, teamwork, a strong work ethic, a passion to be the best, and an extraordinary commitment to clients.

The Consignment Operations department is the nerve center of our business, overseeing internal data related to finding, getting, receiving, processing, and selling consignments of wine from clients. This includes cataloging wines, wine valuation, organizing and administering info for other departments, and tracking changes to consignments.

As a member of this team, the Consignment Operations Associate plays a large part in making sure that all consignments are properly cataloged, priced, and proofread, and that clients are happy with our level of communication and service.

Exceptional attention to detail, good organizational skills, and the ability to self-direct are extremely important. Clear and timely communication with clients concerning list receipt, appraisal status, consignments, and contractual documentation is imperative.

We're more interested in people who have the right organizational and analytical skills than we are in wine experts. However, the right candidate must be willing to learn about wine and the wine market in order to become proficient at creating valuations of wine collections. The Associate will also help out during auctions and by occasionally travelling on collection trips.
