As much as there’s The Waitrose Way of doing things, as a senior manager we expect you to make your mark too. An expert as to what your local customers need, the success of the branch will ultimately be up to you. And whilst we’ll give you the autonomy you need, we’ll also give you the kind of operational back-up you’d expect from a service driven company such as ours. Whatever experience you bring, our tailored Management Development Programme will help build on your experience and skills so you have all the tools to succeed. After all, as Partners… we’re in this together.
Our Branch Managers have that ‘something’ that makes them trusted and inspirational leaders. Part of that’s down to their proven operational and commercial retail experience, but it’s also down to being a skilled manager. We need people who can communicate their branch vision in a way that motivates, whilst developing the Partners around them to ensure everyone’s working to greater success.
They instinctively understand what’s needed operationally and commercially and then take the steps needed to get there. They’re not fazed by effectively running a £multi-million business, it’s something that puts a spring in their step and their enthusiasm, and passion, for our products and customers is infectious.
As the manager of your department you’re accountable for your team’s success, so you need to know every aspect of what’s going on. Rotas, training and development, stock control and sales – are all under your control as you promote teamwork to deliver results. Of course, exceptional customer service remains a large part of what makes your department successful, so you’ll make sure it’s nothing short of perfection.
Whether you have built a career in retail directly from education, or moved from a different sector completely, you have a passion for what we do – ideally in the food arena – and an impressive track record of managing a large team within a store or a business.
