Supervisor - Canterbury
What you’ll do
Want to learn about store management with full support and guidance? Join us as a Supervisor and we’ll give you every opportunity. You’ll help to run the store day-to-day, making sure our customers have an excellent experience and keep coming back for more. You’ll check it meets the highest standards, as well as motivating the team so they really give it their all. Learning to deal with issues and how to create a welcoming atmosphere, you’ll test yourself by deputising for the manager. Once you’ve got the hang of it, it will be time to take on bigger things. Got commitments outside work? We’ll try our best to be flexible.
What’s in it for you
When it comes to stepping stones, this is one of the best in retail. With superb training and hands-on experience, you can really boost your career. It’s the ideal preparation for running a store yourself. And with stores UK-wide, there are plenty of opportunities to move around and progress. We’ll also reward you with some fantastic flexible benefits, including a discount of up to 50% in our High Street stores and access to a range of discounts with other retailers. Plus, flexible working, childcare vouchers, a pension and much more.
Who we’re looking for
Motivating a team is one of the most important jobs there is. We need you to get people working together and inspired to give the very best service.
