Olives and more
Forest Hill, London

Posted: 3 Aug 2022

Deadline: 28 Aug 2022

Compensation: London Living Wage

Paid Part-time


Job description

Olives and more is a small family business founded on the Spanish olive tree. Our deli shop opened its door in Forest Hill in late 2019 and we sell a wide variety of Spanish foods and homeware products. We also organise olive oil tasting sessions.

The origins of the business date back to 2016 with a desire to expand the culture and benefits of olive oil to the UK. We started importing olives and olive products straight from small producers in Spain. Over time we have added new Spanish products to our offer to fulfill the wishes of our customers, but our ethos remains the same offering high-quality products from rural areas from Spain that are also rarely found in other shops in the UK.

We are now looking for a food lover to help us sell our products in our shop and also our markets we regularly attend in south-east London (Woolwich and Crystal Palace) across the weekend. There will be other opportunities to take on extra shifts in the shop.

You will be selling our Spanish olives and other products with passion and enthusiasm to loyal regular customers and newcomers alike.

We seek candidates who are:

  • Able to work at the weekends for 12 hours minimum.
  • Punctual, reliable, and responsible.
  • Willing to learn in general, but especially about olives and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Interested in olives and Spanish food.
  • Spanish speakers will be a bonus but not necessary.
  • Bright, chatty, and able to deliver an enjoyable customer shopping experience.
  • Self-motivated with a can-do attitude
  • Great communicators and have proven selling skills.
  • Willing to contribute and roll your sleeves up, and work together to create a remarkable shop

Note that at the markets, you will need to set up the tables, display products, and take payments. At the end of the market, you need to pack up and close down the stall.

The deadline for applications is close of play 28th August.
