Section leaderStore

About the Role

To be employed in this role you must be over the age of 18.

Our operation runs 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with that brings a wide variety of shift patterns – if you're looking for flexible working to fit around your lifestyle, then look no further! We'll work with you on your shifts, but late and weekend working is a requirement of the role and we may need to be flexible with your work pattern.

There's a role for everyone in retail - including leadership. As a Section Leader, you'll be the first point of contact for your team. You'll assist with training colleagues and keeping them fully informed by communicating messages in team ‘huddles'. You'll make sure colleagues are available to maintain product availability and meet the expectations of our customers through careful planning of overtime and holidays, ensuring colleagues are in the right place at the right time.

We'll help you to train in different areas and continually develop your skills, so if you're looking for a chance to develop in retail, this could be the role for you!

About You

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 to learning new skills across different departments, and be a strong coach, mentor and motivator for your team. You'll be a role model to the colleagues around you, ensuring customers have a great shopping experience.

Your Benefits

Alongside a competitive salary, you'll get lots of other great benefits too, including 10% off your Asda shopping, incentive schemes, a pension scheme, and discounts across a range of services and activities, from airport parking to theme parks and cinemas.

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.
