Do you want to be part of a community and grow a career? At Southern Co-op we work hard because we want to do well and the more successful we are the more we can give back to our members and communities – that’s the beauty of a co-operative.

We’re currently on an exciting journey to transition to a new retail stock and till system (VME). In order to deploy this new system, we’ll require a team to support our store teams. You’ll work with our store colleagues to deliver training, and you’ll act as the link between stores, the deployment team manager and the area support manager.

The role requires travel between our retail stores and this could be from the South West, including Exeter and Bristol, across to the South East, including London and Kent. You’ll be required to work weekends and overnight, which means you may be staying away from home.

Key Responsibilities:

Provide on-site support and training to store teams
Ensure that all cutover actions are completed correctly and to schedule
Ensure all store processes are completed pre and post cutover
Be primary point of contact in store for all VME System deployment issues
Complete Operational Health Checks and feedback to the Deployment Team Manager
Manage internal and external resource for the cutover (some overnight works and weekends)

Experience, Knowledge and Skills:

Excellent communication skills
Excellent Planning and Prioritisation skills
Project management skills would be an advantage, but not essential
Able to engage with all levels of the business up to Director level
A good understanding of Retail Operations within Southern Coop
Ability to learn new skills and systems
Holds a full UK driving license – prepared to travel throughout the Southern Coop region including occasional overnight stays
Able to work overnight
Reliable transport
Able to work weekends

If you have a passion for retail then this could be the career for you. In return, we will offer a competitive salary and benefits package that includes a bonus, pension and colleague discount schemes
