What you will do in your working day

We are looking to recruit an Apprentice Retail Supervisor for our shop in Macclesfield. We offer a permanent full-time position working a variety of shifts, 5 days from 7 each week.

As one of our apprentices, you will:

  • Make all of our customers feel welcome with a friendly smile and simple hello.
  • Help customers find the items they are looking for.
  • Give a fast and friendly service at the tills, always offering help to pack and leaving a good impression with a friendly thank you and goodbye.
  • Handle stock with care whilst working deliveries, quickly placing products into our freezers and onto our shelves ready for our customers to buy.
  • Work with the rest of your team to complete the daily and weekly routines that keep our shops clean and tidy.
  • Open and close the shop, handle cash, place orders and support your manager in leading the team to run an efficient shop and provide great service to our customers.

You will need:

  • A friendly, positive, hardworking approach to work.
  • To enjoy being busy as there is always something to do. As a junior member of management, you’ll jump from putting out deliveries to serving on the till, helping customers on the shop floor, organising other team members and more!
  • To be reliable as you will be an important part of a small team.
  • Your colleagues and customers will depend upon you to do your best on each shift and not let the team down.
  • A bit of flexibility when it comes to your shifts. When other members of your team are off enjoying their holidays, we may need you to work slightly different hours to cover for them. Rota’s are planned three weeks in advance and your commitments outside of work will be taken into consideration when planning your shifts.
  • Ensure that all work set by our apprenticeship provider is completed on time and to the best of your ability.

To become an apprentice, you must:

  • Be 16 or over not already in full-time education

You can start an apprenticeship whether you’re starting your career, want a change or you're upskilling in your current job. You can have a previous qualification like a degree and still start an apprenticeship.

As an apprentice, you’ll:

  • Have regular one-to-one sessions with a dedicated trainer either remotely or through visits to your workplace
  • Learn and train for a specific job
  • Get paid and receive holiday leave
  • Get hands-on experience in a real job
  • Study for at least 20% of your working hours
  • Complete assessments during and at the end of your apprenticeship
  • Be on a career path with lots of future potential

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.

Levels of an Apprenticeship

Each apprenticeship has a level and an equivalent education level. You can start an apprenticeship at any level. 

At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent education level. For example, if you complete a level 3 apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent of an A level.

The training you will be getting

  • Level 3 Retail Team Leader Apprenticeship Standard qualification

Apprenticeship standards are aimed at developing skills within the Apprentice’s chosen career route, each standard has set knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be successful within the job role.

This will include the completion of Functional Skills, in maths and English. Once the apprentice has completed a minimum of 12 months of training and the employer and Inspiro's Regional Trainer confirm they have met all the requirements of the standard they will be put through to end point assessment.

The end point assessment is independent of the training and includes a variety of assessment methods that test the skills and knowledge of the apprentice to ensure they are fully competent in their role.

Each Apprentice will be supported throughout the apprenticeship by a structured programme of teaching, e-learning, face to face training and workplace mentoring; this will encourage and help them to meet the requirements of the new standards and will prepare them for the end of point assessment.

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

  • Progression from this apprenticeship could be into a junior retail management position.
  • There are many opportunities for a career at Farmfoods. We have some great training programmes in place and only promote to Shop and Area Manager positions from within. Many people in management and central services positions at Farmfoods started their careers in our shops, so this could be the start of a rewarding career for you.
  • This vacancy will become permanent upon completion of your apprenticeship.
