Food Hall Trading ManagerStore

About the Role There's a role for everyone in retail - including leadership. As a Trading Manager, you'll motivate your Section Managers to deliver the best standards across your department, maximising availability and driving sales. You'll have an eye for detail, maintaining shop floor standards and coaching your team to do the same. You'll be responsible for ensuring that merchandising and operational standards are met, and that back of house areas run safely and smoothly. If you're looking for a chance to develop further in retail, this could be the role for you! As part of the leadership team, you'll work a three-week rolling rota which will include weekends, evenings and sometimes late nights. At times, you may be solely responsible for the store, and therefore you'll need to be confident in overseeing operation as a whole. About You You'll be able to work in a fast paced environment and be adaptable to change. You'll be naturally friendly and want to get stuck in, working with your team to deliver great results. You'll have an enthusiastic approach and be a strong coach, mentor and motivator. You'll be a role model to the colleagues around you, ensuring customers have a great shopping experience.

The Retail Learning Journey

We want everyone who joins our stores to have everything they need to grow into confident colleagues across our departments. That’s what our Learning Journey, split into Ready to Go – Ready to Serve – Ready to Grow, is all about. From your induction to your fifth year with us, it’s designed to support your growth across different roles in our job families, so you develop your skills and join other departments.

Ready to Go

We’ll welcome you into the business, helping you settle in, making sure you have the knowledge and support you need to be confident in your new role.

Ready to Serve

You’ll shadow some of our team members across different roles in our job families, and learn about the different levels in their department or store in bite-sized learning missions. So you can learn, grow, and get the knowledge you need to work in a new department.

Ready to Grow

When you’re ready, you can start thinking about where you want to go next, and what learning you need to grow. And we’ll help you make it happen, and help you develop your skills so you’re ready to grow into your next role.

There's always doors open to career development if you want it. You do have to be self-motivated to progress your own development, but the opportunities are there and you get out of it what you're putting in.
