  • Mentoring and supporting your Store Managers in recruiting, training and developing their teams, while improving their store performance
  • Visiting the regional office for monthly meetings ensuring you and your colleagues are all singing from the same Lidl hymn sheet
  • Consistently creating an environment where your teams can do their best work, shift after shift, in accordance with our Leadership & Company Principles

What you'll need

  • The ability to understand complex reports, how to put next steps in place and oversee the effectiveness of new initiatives
  • Drive to learn and keep your finger on the pulse of the ever-changing aspects of our business
  • Effective communication skills to support your teams with new launches, concepts and processes
  • A keen willingness to learn, take the lead and be hands-on with strategy and planning
