The Role 

Managing your own shop requires passion. You’ll be part of a team that puts the customers at the heart of everything you do making sure their experience is a great one. How? Commitment, hard work and of course lots of fun along the way.

  • You'll set high standards and make sure your shop reaches them. You'll be in charge of achieving sales and profitability targets and discuss your performance regularly with your Area Manager.
  • As head of your own shop, you’ll find the role both varied and rewarding; overseeing the training and development of every member of the team all whilst becoming part of the wider community.
  • You’ll find this is management at its most practical – you'll need to roll your sleeves up, get involved in food preparation, serving customers and make sure the shop is clean, hygienic and welcoming. It’ll 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 a track record as a supervisor or line manager and a CV bursting with customer service experience. You'll need numeracy skills, basic computer literacy and a flexible approach to working hours. On a personal level, we look for problem-solvers who can 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!
  • Everyone in our family values hard work and commitment. Be brilliant in your role and you'll get some brilliant things back from us in return:
  •  *Commission related to your sales figures
  •  *Various competitions including a well-rewarded Shop of the Year event to take part in
  •  *Access to some great training and development activities
  •  *Opportunities to develop and progress your career with us



To be able to:

  • Deliver great service experiences for your customers
  • Lead a high performing team
  • Achieve consistently high standards
  • Drive sales in your shop
  • Contribute to the profit of your shop
