Please ensure you are able to work all shifts advertised before applying for this role
If you like variety and helping people – really making their day – this could well be a role you’ll love. As a Services Assistant, you could find yourself in the office, completing tasks on the shop floor, serving a customer on the checkouts or in one of our petrol stations.
This job is about doing the right thing for our customers and making sure you really wow them with the best shopping experience possible. After all, that’s what will keep them coming back. So you’ll be the friendly, professional face on check outs, our self-service tills or in the kiosk – you could even help customers pick up their click and collect parcels.
In fact, you’ll be doing everything you can to make things simple for our customers, from dealing with complaints, refunds and price control, to putting up posters and advertising, or doing the right thing to ensure we’re meeting the rules and legislation for working with petrol. One thing’s for sure – we’ll give you the training you need to do a great job and you’ll be part of a dedicated team, all working and winning together.
You don’t need to bring any experience to do this role. What matters is that you’re able to deliver a friendly, efficient and seamless service and you’re able to be yourself. Because that’s what our customers really want. Show us you’re passionate about getting involved and working at pace. And, if you’re open to working flexibly when things get quiet, that’s even better.
Please note, to work in the Petrol Station you need to be aged 18 or over.
