Future launches Decanter 360 Academy

Global brand powerhouse Future plc has announced the latest offering as part of its commitment to inclusion and mobility with the launch of the Decanter 360 Academy.

The 12 month Academy programme will provide an entry-level opportunity into the world of wine – an industry that can sometimes be seen as daunting from the outside.

Recruitment is open now for the first cohort which will provide real hands-on experience, training and mentorship within every aspect of the Decanter business and include a vocational wine industry-related qualification.

The first of its kind programme is an opportunity to propel positive change, increasing and improving diversity and inclusion, a key part of Future’s work around its Our Future, Our Responsibility strategy.

“We know the world of wine can sometimes feel daunting from the outside, but we want to show people this absolutely should not be the case and we can be a truly diverse and inclusive industry,” said Alex Layton, Head of Marketing at Decanter. “With the backing of Future, we are incredibly excited, and proud, to be launching this initiative to give somebody a real chance to build a career in this fascinating industry, whatever their background.”

During the last 12 months, Future has filled 15 roles through similar Academy and Kickstarter initiatives.
