Weekends are treated as a normal working day and therefore we are looking for people who are flexible and willing to step in and do overtime when required. You’ll find this is management at its most practical – you'll need to roll your sleeves up, get involved in food preparation, serve customers and make sure the shop is clean, hygienic and welcoming. It will appeal to your hands-on nature. Of course, that’s on top of all the administrative jobs you’d expect a manager to have. Naturally, it’s a job that calls for experience as a supervisor or line manager as well as great customer service experience. You'll need good numeracy skills, basic computer literacy and a flexible approach to working hours. On a personal level, we look for people who can rise to the challenge, motivate their team, manage change, communicate with people from all walks of life and continually focus on our customers. If you've worked in food production or retail before, that’s even better! If you feel you have the above skills and experience as well as being confident, friendly and comfortable working with members of the public whilst maintaining the high levels of standards within the store, get in touch.
