Job Description

Managing Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppeshops require passion. You’ll be part of a team that puts the customers at the heart of everything you do making sure their experience is a great one. How? Commitment, hard work and of course lots of fun along the way.

You'll set high standards and make sure your shop reaches them. You'll oversee achieving sales and profitability targets and discuss your performance regularly with your Operations Manager.

As head of your own Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe family, you’ll find the role both varied and rewarding; overseeing the training and development of every member of the team all whilst becoming part of the wider community.

You’ll find this is management at its most practical – you'll need to roll your sleeves up, get involved in candy preparation, serving customers and make sure the shop is clean, hygienic and welcoming. It’ll appeal to your hands-on nature. Of course, that’s on top of all the administrative jobs you’d expect a manager to have.

Naturally, it’s a job that calls for a track record as a supervisor or line manager and a CV bursting with customer service experience. You'll need numeracy skills, basic computer literacy and a flexible approach to working hours. On a personal level, we look for problem-solvers who can manage change, communicate with people from all walks of life and continually focus on our customers.

If you've worked in food production or retail before, that’s even better!

Everyone in our family values hard work and commitment. Be brilliant in your role and you'll get some brilliant things back from us in return:

- Competitive basic salary & commission related to your sales figures

- Access to some great training and development activities

- Opportunities to develop and progress your career with us


To be able to:

  • Deliver great service experiences for your customers
  • Lead a high performing team
  • Achieve consistently high standards
  • Drive sales in your shop
  • Contribute to the profit of your shop

A promotion is viewed as guaranteed by employer to reward for work contributions and successful performance evaluations managed by the Operations Manager.

A competitive remuneration package will be offered to the right candidates. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Interested parties, please apply with full resume, date availability and expected salary to the Human Resources Department via "APPLY NOW".
