Job Description

Since opening our first shop in 1869, we’ve made a lot of Christmases happen. Over the last 150 years, our food and drink offer might have changed, but our passion for outstanding customer service remains just as strong. Join us as a Trading Assistant and you’ll be helping to continue our tradition of creating fantastic festive experiences for millions of families across the country. 

In this role you’ll be focused on the essential task of sorting and replenishing stock, checking our produce to make sure it’s always fresh, unloading deliveries, and most importantly, making things simpler for colleagues and customers alike. 

Part of a close-knit, dedicated team all working and winning as one team, you’ll always have support on hand; but we’ll also trust you to use your own initiative. You’ll be given all the support you need to do the best job you can. It’s about making a difference to everyone around you.  

Whilst we don’t ask for specific experience, we do ask that you’re able to deliver a friendly, efficient, and seamless service and you’re able to be yourself. You can make things happen at pace and you want to learn how to use new technology and gadgets to do your job well. 

Oh, and 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
