Market Retailer

Mons Cheesemongers
Borough Market SE1

Posted: 23 Jul 2021

Deadline: 8 Aug 2021

Paid Part-time Permanent

Job description

We are looking for a part-time cheesemonger to join our retail team for 2-3 days a week at our Borough Market stall. An ideal candidate will not only share our genuine passion for good food but will be totally comfortable in a customer facing role.

Crucially, they will be keen to learn what it takes to build sales at a stall within one of London's most important food markets. We believe experience behind the cheese counter is the best way to appreciate the products we work with; on a daily basis you will get the opportunity to taste our cheeses and learn about their production, selection and maturation.

With the market stall open Wednesday through to Sunday, weekend availability is essential. Similarly, all members of staff are expected to take on extra shifts across the festive season in what is our busiest time of the year.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Helping to create an inviting, positive and safe shopping experience
  • Speaking enthusiastically and honestly about our entire range in order to match the right cheese with our lovely customers
  • Adhering to strict health and safety procedures
  • Helping to drive the stall towards its weekly sales targets
  • Engaging in the market culture that makes Borough such an enjoyable shopping experience

This role is well suited to an individual looking to balance work in the food industry alongside other interests. We offer a competitive salary, allowing for a short training period, with comprehensive training and good opportunities for progression for an individual who can see a long future in the cheese world. Staff tastings, producer visits and cheese on tap are some of the benefits that come with this role.

Please call 020 706 469 12 if you have any questions.
