This is an exciting role where you will champion the needs of the customer, understand your local market and provide excellent service. You will work alongside the Food Hall Buying Manager to develop a business plan that will support the growth in sales and profitability of your department.

Of course you will need to make sure that you are comprehensive with all of the legal requirements that come with running a fresh food department and you will make sure that these standards are delivered consistently and that your team know the expectations required too.

  • Commercial awareness and the understanding of yields and costs.
  • Proven ability to manage profit and loss margins.
