Looking for a job to suit your family life?

Farmfoods offer flexibility and a variety of part time roles so you can earn some money between school runs. You could work in the week, evenings or weekends. As a family run business we understand the importance of time with the kids and we may have a role that suits your family life.


If you are looking for a job where you can sit on a till and daydream the hours away, Farmfoods is not right for you! Our Retail Assistants do it all; you will not just be serving customers or replenishing stock, you’ll be serving customers and replenishing stock! You will also be responsible for other essential tasks like cleaning and quality checking to maintain the high standards that your customers expect.

We can assure you that your time at work will be busy, and maintaining a positive attitude will be essential; as a parent you will be no stranger to that!

Many of our current Retail Assistants describe their team as a family so you can be sure that there will be support as you get to grips with your new role.

There are lots of career opportunities within Farmfoods; we like to develop our people. We encourage internal promotion and we always look to promote from within.
Stage One – Application Form
The online application form consists of a number of short questions which enable us to get to know a bit more about you and also to help you decide if we are the right company for you. The hiring manager will review your application form and decide if they would like to progress your application further.

Stage Two – Face to Face Interview
If the hiring manager likes what they see in your application, they will give you a call to arrange a face to face interview with you, which will be held in one of our shops (usually the one you’ve applied to work in).

Stage Three - Job Offer
After the interview the hiring manager will be in touch within 7 days to let you know the outcome. This may be via email if you are unsuccessful or by telephone if you are successful.
After making your application you should expect to hear from us within 4 weeks but in most cases you will hear much sooner than that (usually within 2 – 3 weeks).
Due to the large number of applications we receive we are unable to provide any specific feedback if your application is unsuccessful.
Absolutely, you are more than welcome to apply again.
