We have an exciting opportunity for the right individual to join our team as Assistant Retail Manager on a 30 hour contract, 5 days over 7, in our Bakery shop in Dollar, Clackmannanshire.

What You’ll Do

Your main role will be to support with all aspects of operations and team management in your shop and everything that this entails, including:

  • Leading by example and encouraging the team to achieve sales targets whilst providing our customers with a great shopping experience every time so they will keep coming back!
  • Working closely with the Managers to support with monitoring and maximising the performance of the team
  • Completing compliance tasks to ensure that the shop is running diligently
  • All of our management like to muck in, when they’re not completing paperwork or cooking, they’re jumping on the till and helping their team with the lunch-time rush or grabbing a brush and sweeping the floor, whilst delegating tasks amongst the team
  • Morning, afternoon and late afternoon shifts are shared amongst management on a rota basis. Our morning shifts mean setting up our display cabinets, putting away deliveries, counting stock and preparing salad, while our late afternoon shifts include cleaning, sweeping and stock counting.
  • Our managers handle cash everyday and order the shop’s stock to ensure optimum availability for our customers

So it's a hands on role!

What You’ll Need

Nothing! Although previous management experience is preferred, what we look for is the right attitude and work ethic - full training will be provided!

Are you…

  • A team player? We believe that teamwork makes the dreamwork and is essential to ensure the smooth operations within our shops
  • Someone that loves the hustle and bustle of a busy shop?
  • Someone who can use their initiative and overcome challenges?
  • A people-person? Someone who has a naturally good rapport with people?
  • Someone who can confidently lead a team?
  • Someone that provides consistently great customer service and knows what it takes to achieve this?
  • Someone who is organised and can prioritise workloads?
  • Someone who is confident in delegating tasks and giving and receiving feedback?
  • Ready to progress to the next stage in your career?

Does all of this sound like you? If so, we want to hear from you!

About us

Stephens Bakery is a 4th generation family business that is over 150 years in the baking but don’t let that fool you into thinking we’re stuck in the past! We are a company that has never shied away from innovation - we were the first bakery to partner with convenience stores, the first to mobilise a bakery Jiffy Van and the first to open a stand-alone bakery drive-thru. We now have 15 retail shops and convenience partnerships with Coop, Scotmid, Morrisons and Independent retailers.

When we’re not creating new ways to serve our customers, we’re staying true to our craft by using traditional baking methods and sourcing the finest local ingredients. With us, the proof is in the pudding, and this is why we won Scottish Craft Bakery of the Year, UK Craft Bakery Business of the Year in 2021 and we are home to Scotland’s favourite Morning Roll, Steak Bridie and Double-Biscuit.
