GRADUATES (full time positions)
Farmfoods is the UK's Frozen Food Specialist. We began more than 50 years ago in Scotland and now trade from over 300 stores in Scotland, England and Wales. We pride ourselves on offering Great Food at Amazing Prices from clean, tidy and well presented stores.
We're a family business with ambition. The next few years will see continued growth and exciting challenges. If you're the type of person that thrives on responsibility, hard work and the challenge of leading others, then this might be the perfect position for you.
We are looking for intelligent, highly motivated graduates who have the drive and commitment to succeed and progress within our company. We are offering a starting salary of £20,000 that rises once you take responsibility for a full cluster of stores. Once you have got your area, you will also be provided with a fully expensed car, phone and laptop.
Progress is carefully monitored and as soon as you're ready (which could be in less than 6 months), you will take responsibility for three to six stores - effectively running your own multi-million pound business.
This isn't a "graduate training programme", it's a proper job with real responsibility, right from day one. You will find the training, and the job, challenging physically as well as mentally. You'll cover the complete spectrum of management from store operations, product trading, financial admin, people management, Health & Safety and logistics
Most of your training will be hands on in one of our branches, interacting and looking after the people that we depend on to keep us in business... our customers. Or as we prefer to call them... our VIPs!
Let's assume you've worked hard and got a good degree, the minimum being a 2:1 in any subject. You'll also have strong maths and english skills, B's in GCSE English and Maths (or equivalent).
Before you send in your application, you have to ask yourself whether you have the energy, commitment and ambition to match the challenge facing you.
Perhaps you're highly motivated and think you have what it takes to succeed with us, but you can't quite meet the academic requirements? Provided there's a good reason for this, we'd still love to hear from you.
You can apply by sending a covering letter and CV (as a single word document or pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
