Working closely with the store management team, our Supervisors are instrumental in contributing to the financial performance of the store and enhancing the culture.

Key information

You will spend much of your time developing and nurturing the team, giving them the experience they need to move into a management role one day. In addition, as a key member of the in-store team you will see that every customer enjoys an incredible standard of service.

Why you’ll love it

Our stores are vibrant and busy retail environments, and anyone with a passion for outstanding customer service who enjoys a team environment fits right in. Our Supervisors ensure that services levels are met and are role models for other team members. This role would be a great fit for someone who is looking for that next step in their career and develop their management skills.

Bring your bright ideas

One of the great things about our unique Joint Venture Partnership (JVP) model is that the decision-makers are right there, in store alongside their team member. We encourage innovation, so if you have a bright idea in regards to process improvement, your JVP can make it happen.
