Retail Shop Manager - London Zone 1

Date: 22-Apr-2021

Location: London- Zone 1, GB, WC2R 1JA

Company: Greggs Plc

About the role

Are you an experienced Retail Food on the Go Manager? Are you looking for a challenge in a high profile, rewarding area with a focus on leading and developing your shop team to achieve fantastic results? If you’re a customer focused operator with a keen eye for detail, we have some incredibly exciting new shop openings across Central London (Zone 1).

Our shops have long trading days, 7 days a week. You’ll need to be flexible in your availability and be able to move between opening and closing shifts, where you are needed. This means being able to get into Central London for 5am for opening and up till Midnight for Closing shifts. Contract hours are 42 hours per week over 5 days.

Pay Rates

Whilst training with us, the salary will be £26,950. When you’re ready to take on your new shop, you could earn between £26,950 and £33,580 plus a Premium payment, depending on location, plus commission.

Job Description

Managing your own Greggs shop requires passion. You’ll be part of a team that puts the customers at the heart of everything you do making sure their experience is a great one. How? Commitment, hard work and of course lots of fun along the way.

You'll set high standards and make sure your shop reaches them. You'll be in charge of achieving sales and profitability targets and discuss your performance regularly with your Area Manager.

As head of your own Greggs family, you’ll find the role both varied and rewarding; overseeing the training and development of every member of the team all whilst becoming part of the wider community.

You’ll find this is management at its most practical – you'll need to roll your sleeves up, get involved in food preparation, serving customers and make sure the shop is clean, hygienic and welcoming. It’ll appeal to your hands-on nature. Of course, that’s on top of all the administrative jobs you’d expect a manager to have.

Naturally, it’s a job that calls for a track record as a supervisor or line manager and a CV bursting with customer service experience. You'll need numeracy skills, basic computer literacy and a flexible approach to working hours. On a personal level, we look for problem-solvers who can manage change, communicate with people from all walks of life and continually focus on our customers.

If you've worked in food production or retail before, that’s even better!

Everyone in our family values hard work and commitment. Be brilliant in your role and you'll get some brilliant things back from us in return:

- Commission related to your sales figures

- Various competitions including a well rewarded Shop of the Year event to take part in

- Access to some great training and development activities

- Opportunities to develop and progress your career with us
