Job Description

As this post requires you to work earlier than 06:00 you will need to be 18 years of age to apply for this position.

Please be aware that this role requires you to work between 04:00 and 08:00, meaning a 16 hour contract will require you to do this over four days. 12 hour (three day) contracts are also available, though we anticipate we will be able to offer overtime in the coming months. There is potential for this post to become a permanent position subject to performance. Candidates should additionally be aware that one of your working days must be Sunday.

Christmas at Sainsbury’s all starts with a simple click. Whether that’s a customer clicking the order button, the click of the in-store Christmas lights, or you, clicking to join us as an Online Assistant and helping us create fantastic festive shopping experiences that keep people coming back all year round.

As an Online Assistant this holiday season, you’ll be making Christmas happen picking products on the shop floor - selecting the best quality produce, just like you would if you were shopping for yourself. Putting each order together, you’ll give customers exactly what they’ve asked for. Or if we’ve sold out of anything, you might choose a replacement that’s the closest match. 

We don’t ask that you bring any specific experience to the role – just that you’re driven to do the right thing for our customers and the ability to work at pace. You’ll have a keen attention to detail and passion for great customer service and be open to learning how to operate new technology. Importantly you’ll also be comfortable lifting and moving shopping containers weighing up to 15 kg.

There are lots of great benefits to being on our Winning Team, including:

  • A discount card after 12 weeks that gives you 10% off your Sainsbury’s shopping, 10% off at Argos and 10% discount at Habitat
  • A cycle to work scheme
  • A season ticket loan after you’ve completed 12 weeks of service and passed your probation
  • Special offers on gym memberships, restaurants, holidays, retail vouchers and more
