Retail / Counter Assistant (Butcher, Baker... Grocer)

16+ hours / week (could be full time), Broughton-in-Furness

At CGP we obsess about delivering a top-class service to all our customers.  In this role you’ll be a key part of our retail teams maintaining our expected high standard of our local businesses in Broughton-in-Furness — which include a Butcher's, Grocer's, Bakery and Petrol Station known as CGP Pitstop.

You'll primarily be based in one or two of our retailers, but may be asked to work at any — full training will be provided.

Main duties & responsibilities

Wherever you’re working, you’ll play a pivotal role in delivering a really positive customer experience.  As you’ll be customer-facing, you’ll be a real ambassador for CGP in the local community.  Polite, cheerful and outgoing, you’ll take pride in your work and ensure:

  • Everyone who walks through the door gets a fantastic level of customer service, whether by serving bread & cakes, meat or groceries in one of the shops or, if working at Pitstop, filling customers’ cars with fuel
  • High quality stock is in place at all times — no stock-outs but no out of date stock either!
  • Appropriate daily checks are carried out and, where needed, all end-of-day procedures are completed accurately (including daily paperwork), securing cash in the agreed manner and ensuring the property is securely locked
  • Any necessary checks for health & safety purposes are carried out and any issues raised with the manager
Key attributes

Friendly and flexible in your approach, you’ll be enthusiastic, a hard worker and have very high standards (whatever you’re doing).

A great team player with a positive can-do attitude, you’ll need to have:

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills — you’ll enjoy meeting and chatting to customers
  • The ability to use your initiative but also know when to ask for help
  • Flexibility to cover a wide range of tasks and be willing to help with whatever needs doing on any CGP site
  • Exceptional attention to detail – you’ll obsess about keeping the shops and storerooms clean and tidy at all times
  • Good numeracy skills – confident dealing with cash and calculating change
  • The ability to work under pressure and juggle a number of different tasks
Other information

You’ll be contracted for a minimum of 16 hours and will be paid monthly (£9.42 / hour for over 21s), with an additional premium for any weekend shifts covered.  Shifts will vary according to what you’re doing (Monday through Sunday) and you could find yourself with an early start one day (e.g. 7.15am) and a later finish another day (e.g. 6.45pm) so we’re looking for flexibility.
You’ll also get 5 weeks holiday (pro-rated to hours worked), plus generous benefits including a healthcare cashback plan, free membership of the Leisure and Golf Club at Eccle Riggs for you and your dependants and pension contributions (above the statutory minimum).

Main duties & responsibilities

In this role, it’s unlikely that any two days will be the same.  You could be asked to do plenty of different things.  Here are some of the more regular tasks and responsibilities of a Leisure Assistant:

  • Take food and drink orders, prepare food and serve our customers (including CGP staff)
  • Keep on top of tidying and cleaning — so that our club always looks lovely
  • Carry out health & safety checks on our facilities (including pool water testing)
  • Deal with cash and stock management
  • Generally help our members and guests with anything they need

 You’ll also have to be ready and willing to do anything else that’s asked of you by your manager, including helping in other departments where necessary.

Key attributes

We’ve learnt that not just anybody can juggle all of this.  You’ll need to be happy working as part of a team that’s committed to delivering the highest standard of service possible.  You’ll also be:

  • Self-motivated and enthusiastic
  • Great with people (and enjoy helping them)
  • A committed team member
  • Flexible — happy to work evenings and weekends (see below)
  • Great at ‘housekeeping’ — spotting what needs to be done without being asked
  • Honest with unquestionable integrity
  • Good with numbers (for taking orders and handling cash)
  • Comfortable working with computers
  • Able to drive and swim
Working hours

On a rota basis, Monday – Sunday

Flexibility needed for 7.30am starts / 9.15pm finishes (earlier finish at weekend)
