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.

As a Customer Assistant in our Specialist Department, which covers the café & counters, you'll have no trouble making our customers feel special too. It's a busy and interesting job, with lots of variety - you'll be making and serving food and drinks, taking money, and of course always making sure the café & counters are spotlessly clean. But our customers will be your main focus, and everything you do will be with them in mind. If they're happy, then we're a truly happy family - and that's what Booths is all about.

You will have the fantastic opportunity of being part of the development of the current café which will see a refurbishment and the introduction of hot food. Therefore you will need to feel comfortable with being in a kitchen environment. It is desirable that you will have worked in a similar role previously but it is not essential as training will be provided. As the Specialist positions will involve the use of knives and cutting equipment we can only accept applications from individuals aged 18 years and over.

We also have vacancies on our trading department which includes giving fantastic service at the checkouts and replenishing stock across all departments.

Booths Offers you some Amazing Benefits:

• Colleague Discount Card (including a second card for a family member) after qualifying service
• Access to an Occupational Health provider
• Opportunity to join the Healthshield Insurance Scheme
• Company Pension
• Colleague Bonus Scheme
• Long Service Awards
