• Make sure the vehicle is safe, legal and operational – you’ll complete daily checks to make sure the vehicle is operational, safely loading and unloading the vehicle and taking care picking and packing customer orders
• Embrace change – you’ll help to embed change, embracing and supporting changes so they become a natural way of working, and sharing experiences with other colleagues to help them positively adapt to changes

Culture Video
Service with a difference

This isn’t your standard food retail job, and no two days will be the same. But the one thing that won’t change is your dedication to providing great service to our customers and members. Our stores are a strong part of the local community and we’re proud to give back to them. So not only will you be helping customers find what they need, making sure the store looks good, and introducing them to our membership scheme. You’ll be building relationships and getting to know who shops with us every day. Because that’s what being part of a community is all about. That’s the Co-op difference. And you’ll do it all with a smile on your face, just so you can put a smile on theirs.

Our culture

Smiling while you work is easy when you see the difference you make each day. Our past, present and future is all about making a positive impact on our communities – and our store teams have the additional pride of making this possible. The conversations you have with our customers and members help us bring attention to local charities and causes. You may even serve the people directly affected. Which fills us all with a greater sense of purpose.

  • Culture Icon one

    Our past, present and future is all about making a positive impact on our communities.

    We’re proud our business helps to create new spaces and facilities in local neighbourhoods.
