Located in the heart of Perthshire and south west of the city of Perth, the small, rural town of Auchterarder is home to the famous 5 star Gleneagles hotel, and a popular shopping destination amongst tourists too. You'll support in managing one of our more high profile and high performing stores in the area, and you'll have the exposure to make a real difference in the local community too. With dedicated support and guidance from the store manager, it's a great opportunity for someone looking to develop and progress their retail career with a company that puts their colleagues, customers and communities at the centre of everything they do.

In this role, you'll be working alongside your store manager to provide a consistently great customer experience in store. We'll look for you to make sure our colleagues fully understand what good customer service looks like, and the impact that poor service has on our business. As a manager, it'll be your responsibility to formulate a plan to involve the store in the local community, and actively lead your team to increase membership engagement. Above all, you'll be a role model to the team by taking pride in the way we present, handle and discuss our food with members and customers. It truly is an amazing time to join us as an assistant store manager and to find out more about what it's like to work here visit

What you'll do:

  • develop a strong working relationship with the store manager
  • mentor and coach your team to deliver fantastic customer service in store
  • create a great working environment for your team
  • build strong links with the local community, and other nearby Co-op businesses
  • lead the team to increase membership sign ups and engagement
  • be a role model to your team to take pride in preparing, handling and presenting our food
  • create a store environment that is safe and secure, for colleagues and our customers
  • react quickly and positively to changing priorities in store
  • alongside the store manager, look into new ways to increase sales, and improve store performance
  • deputise for the store manager in their absence
To get going quickly, we'll need you to be a confident and engaging leader, with a consistent record of developing and leading teams of various sizes and ability. Community is a huge focus for us at the Co-op. So we'll look for you to understand the importance of building relationships and supporting your local community. You'll also have examples of where you've helped to increase business performance.

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • you've got previous retail management experience and if you've worked in food retail, it would be a huge advantage
  • you've previously managed teams of various sizes and ability
  • you enjoy working with your local community and understand the reasons for doing this
  • you've previously helped to improve business performance
  • you enjoy working shoulder to shoulder with your colleagues on the shop floor
  • you can effectively manage changing and often conflicting priorities
