We are still looking for a new casual Retail Assistant to join our team!

This position is ideal for a mature-minded and reliable university student, due to flexibility regarding weekdays worked (depending on each Semester’s roster) and the opportunity for increased hours during university holidays, including up-to full time hours during December.

This is an on-going casual position, offering 2 days work per week (including weekend work). Typically, your roster will be one full weekday (flexible, dependent on your Semester's timetabling) and one weekend day (rotating, to ensure all staff have the opportunity to earn Sunday rates etc).   Many of our team have worked with us for several years at a stretch, and we would love to welcome a new team member who will be with us for the 'long-run'. Preference will be given to candidates who are open to a long-term relationship (ie. not seeking a full-time graduate position within the next 6 months).
