The role of a supermarket assistant involves a range of tasks, including advising and serving customers, moving and replenishing stock, carrying out housekeeping activities and handling cash and card transactions according to our set procedures.

Partners may be expected to work in any area of the branch to support the wider team as required, and to maintain the necessary business dress and hygiene standards.

The most tangible advantage of being a Partnership is our annual bonus. We distribute a proportion of profits to our Partners as a percentage of their salary. This percentage is determined by the overall performance of the Partnership. The 2017/18 bonus was 5% of each Partner’s pay.

For UK Mainland Partners the first £3,600 of bonus received is free of income tax. We also run a BonusSave scheme – a Share Incentive Plan – that enables Partners to save income tax and national insurance on money invested into the scheme from their Partnership Bonus.
