Our Management Development Programme is not for the faint hearted because we are looking for our leaders of the future. The job is hands on and the days can be demanding but you will receive support throughout, gain great experience and receive a salary of £22,000 from day one. Are you up for running your very own multi-million pound business in just 9 months?
No previous retail experience is required as our programme will take you from Retail Assistant to Branch Manager in just 9 months.
You will need to be hands on as you will be part of a team responsible for delivering a fast and friendly service in clean and tidy branches. Our Branch Managers spend very little time in the office, preferring to lead from the shop floor. They never ask anyone to do a job that they wouldn’t do themselves… so expect to get your hands dirty.
We want you to understand us inside out so you will spend time in other parts of the business learning how each team works. You will need to work hard but with our award winning training, management and leadership workshops and the support of your manager, colleagues and mentor you have every opportunity to succeed.
Farmfoods is a sixty year old family business. When you join us you will become a part of achieving our mission to deliver the simplest, best value, friendliest shops in town… different to anywhere else and much better.
With over 300 shops spread nationwide from Invergordon to Plymouth, the chances are we have a location for you.
We are a family business, not a corporate monster. Our culture is built around our values of Hard Work, Trust, Respect and Positive Attitude and our belief that You Are In Control. At every level in Farmfoods you are trusted and expected to take responsibility for yourself, your work and your colleagues. This is important because in everything we do we remember that it is our customers who pay our wages, and our store teams who serve them. We therefore trust our store teams to take responsibility for delighting our customers every day.
If you are a naturally friendly, enthusiastic person we think you’ll fit right in and love our hard-working, hassle free, customer first approach.
We are looking for committed, highly motivated and driven people to join our Management Development Programme. If you're the type of person who is determined to succeed and who thrives on responsibility and hard work then the Farmfoods Management Development Programme might be your perfect career choice.

We don't mind if you have never worked in retail before, if you meet these requirements we would love to hear from you!
There are four stages to our recruitment process for the Management Development Programme, each of which is designed to let you show off your best and to help us find the best people for our team:
Submit your online application before the deadline. You will be asked some short questions to make sure that Farmfoods is right for you and that you are right for us.
If successful in stage one you will be invited to take part in a short telephone interview to help us get to know you a bit better.
If you reach this stage you will be invited to attend a group assessment centre. This is a day long event where you will take part in group tasks and individual assessments.
This is the final stage of our recruitment process. You will meet one of our Divisional Managers in a branch for a formal interview.
