At Farmfoods, we have various part time roles available so you will find one that suits you. We offer an hourly rate of £6.25 to £8.31 depending on age and length of service and we offer contracts from as little as 8 hours to 39 hours per week to suit your circumstances.
We can offer shifts in the mornings, day time and evenings. We do not do zero hour contracts and you will always be guaranteed a minimum amount of hours. Everybody gets 6 weeks paid holiday per year and overtime at normal rates is often available if you want it.
Uniform (jacket, t-shirt and trousers) is provided free of charge and you get a staff discount of 15% on all purchases from your first day with us.
This isn’t just a job on the checkouts. From serving customers at the till to keeping the shelves and freezers full, as a member of our team you’ll do a bit of everything. All great experience and plenty to add to your CV. We work in a competitive, fast paced environment and you will need to get stuck in and give it your all. We do things pretty quickly and there’s always something to be done. You won’t find a job with us boring.
We also believe it is important to enjoy coming to work. With a friendly team around you, don’t be surprised if you end up staying a while. Our average Retail Assistant stays for 3 years and because we only promote to shop management from within, once they are bitten by the bug, many stay much longer.
Farmfoods is a sixty five year old family business. When you join us you will become a part of achieving our mission to deliver the simplest, best value, friendliest shops in town… different to anywhere else and much better.
With over 300 shops spread nationwide from Invergordon to Bodmin, the chances are we have a location for you.
We are a family business, not a corporate monster. Our culture is built around our values of Hard Work, Trust, Respect and Positive Attitude and our belief that You Are In Control. At every level in Farmfoods you are trusted and expected to take responsibility for yourself, your work and your colleagues. This is important because in everything we do we remember that it is our customers who pay our wages, and our shop teams who serve them. We therefore trust our shop teams to take responsibility for delighting our customers every day.
If you are a naturally friendly, enthusiastic person we think you’ll fit right in and love our hard-working, hassle free, customer first approach.
We work in a competitive, fast environment and you will need to be able to work quickly. Much of the work we do is physical and frozen food can be heavy! Your shift will go quickly and you won’t need to spend money on a gym membership to stay in shape!
Because we trust our people from day one, you must have a friendly, positive attitude. This means being naturally great with customers and being willing to take responsibility for your own appearance and work from the start. If you are like this, we think you will love our unique culture and friendly atmosphere.
There are three stages to our recruitment process for retail positions, each of which is designed to let you show off your best and to help us find the best people for our team:
Submit your online application before the deadline. You will be asked some short questions to make sure that Farmfoods is right for you and that you are right for us.
If successful you will be contacted to arrange a face to face interview.
The face to face interview will help us to get to know you a bit better as well as you getting to know us.
