We love people who apply the same amount of care and passion to their jobs as they do their hobbies - people who help us create great brands guests love.

InterContinental Dubai Marina, one of the Five Star luxury properties in the center of one of Dubai's most vibrant and energetic neighborhoods with 328 rooms, flexible event space, full service Spa, and six international restaurant and bars, is looking to recruit a Captain Sommelier to join one of its restaurant – Marina Social by Jason Atherton.

The acclaimed Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton, who is Gordon Ramsay’s former protégé, has since gone on to reach the same level as his master internationally and has launched his own restaurant group, The Social Company.

In September 2015, Jason opened Marina Social. It’s his first ‘Social’ restaurant in Dubai and is a stunning waterside restaurant. It has an open kitchen serving a British-Mediterranean inspired menu of tapas-style dishes and an open dessert bar that allows guests to watch and interact with the chefs during their dining experience.

Ideally, you'll have some or all of the following qualifications and experience we're looking for:

  • Assist members and guests during the dinner service with wine recommendations and selection for perfect pairing with their dinner, decanting of the wine and wine service.

  • Maintain all wine lists to be accurate, up to date and free of errors.
  • To establish a rapport with guests maintaining good customer relationship. Handle all guest requests and enquiries on wine order.
  • To project a warm, professional and welcome image.
  • To train and provide knowledge to Captains and Waiters dealing with wine service
  • To assist the Sommelier with his responsibilities and also function in his capacity during his absence.
  • Lead the wine sales and service in the absence of the Sommelier and lend support to the Restaurant Manager



Ideally, you will have a minimum one year experience as a Captain Sommelier. You must have confirmed qualifications or certifications in Wine. Ultimately, you will have good administrative skills. You will have the ability to be self-motivated, organized and demonstrate good team work. You will have pro-active approach and the ability to meet deadlines. You should be proficient in English.

In return we'll give you a generous benefits package including a competitive salary and the chance to work with a fantastic team of people. Most importantly, we'll give you Room to be yourself.
