Overview


Booths is more than just a well loved store. It's a family. Maybe it's because we've been a family-run business since 1847, but joining our team really does feel like joining a caring, supportive family. You feel special.

And as Supervisor, you'll have responsibility for making sure your department runs smoothly. You'll be looking after a team of General Assistants, making sure they know exactly what they should be doing, where and when – and supporting them to do it to the very best of their skills and abilities. Our customers will be your main focus, and everything you do will be with their shopping experience in mind. If they're happy, then we're happy – and that's what Booths is all about.

If you don't already have retail experience, you'll certainly know how to motivate and organise a team to be their best. You'll be able to understand the way we do things at Booths, encouraging your team to do the same and giving them the confidence to take responsibility for their actions. Providing support when needed, always listening, you'll be the kind of manager who can create a sense of togetherness and pride that your team, and our customers, can really feel.
