Assistant store manager stage
“The training is very thorough,
I came from another supermarket
and the difference is huge!”
Michelle, Deputy Store Manager
DEPUTY STORE MANAGER
Our Deputy Store Managers are responsible for keeping our store operations running like clockwork. If you have visited our stores and seen the team at work, you’ll know this is a very hands-on role. You’ll be on the shop floor all the time working with a team of Customer Assistants. You’ll have clearly structured processes and priorities to follow and delegate on every shift and your task is to make sure the team is working efficiently to get everything done accurately and on time. With a lean rota and lots to do your ability to motivate a team will be crucial. And we believe there’s no better way to do that than by working alongside them.
Your approach will be that no job is too big or small, so you’ll be getting stuck in to every task throughout each shift. You’ll be the person with the keys to the store when the Store Manager is not there so you’ll need to be comfortable with the responsibility of running a high-turnover business. You’ll be the point of contact for happy and unhappy customers and team members too, so you’ll need to be calm and collected in any situation. At Lidl, we don’t have much time to linger on a problem so being decisive and driven to make every day a success will be essential.
We know that the way we work at Lidl isn’t for everyone but if you’re willing to put in the hard work and understand the demands of a fast-paced environment, you’ll be part of an internationally-recognised growing brand, you’ll be well-rewarded and have the opportunity to grow a very successful career.APPLY NOW
