Job description

The Fold Farm Shop is built around our exquisite organic produce which is hand grown and harvested right here in Bransford, Worcestershire. We also offer an impressive range of local, organic, and sustainable products.

We're looking for an inspirational and experienced retail manager to supervise the Farm Shop. This is a varied role delivering outstanding customer service and leading the team to maximise sales. You'll be responsible for stock ordering, keeping a sharp eye on local/organic products and suppliers to keep our offering new and unique, as well as merchandising to make the shop look and feel appealing. Getting to know our customers and giving them a bespoke and satisfying shopping experience is key to success. An understanding of the importance of organic produce and sharing our values of environmentally responsible business is vital.

Our new manager will be part of a Farm Shop relaunch which will see us re-position it as the venue to get fresh produce and hard-to-find goods. As such we are looking for someone who can help develop our retail vision with the commitment to make the shop a success.

This is a flexible role, and the hours can be tailored to the right person. Some weekend work may be required.
