Description

Farmfoods are looking to recruit an Apprentice Retail Assistant for our new shop in Avonmead shopping centre Bristol. We offer a permanent full-time position working a variety of shifts, 5 days from 7 each week.

As one of our retail apprentices you will:

  • Make all of our customers feel welcome with a friendly smile and simple hello.
  • Help customers find the items they are looking for.

You will need:

  • A friendly, positive, hardworking approach to work.
  • To enjoy being busy as there is always something to do. You’ll jump from putting out deliveries to serving on the till, helping customers on the shop floor, completing important cleaning and stock rotation routines and more!
  • To be reliable as you will be an important part of a small team. Your colleagues and customers will depend upon you to do your best on each shift and not let the team down.
  • A bit of flexibility when it comes to your shifts. When other members of your team are off enjoying their holidays, we may need you to work slightly different hours to cover for them. Rota’s are planned three weeks in advance and your commitments outside of work will be taken into consideration when planning your shifts.
  • Ensure that all work set by our apprenticeship provider is completed on time and to the best of your ability.

As an apprentice you’ll:

  • have regular one to one sessions with a dedicated trainer either remotely or through visits to your workplace
  • learn and train for a specific job
  • get paid and receive holiday leave
  • get hands-on experience in a real job
  • study for at least 20% of your working hours
  • complete assessments during and at the end of your apprenticeship
  • be on a career path with lots of future potential

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.
