Farmers Market Person Required

This listing was posted on the 8 July 2024.

Job Description

We ‘knead’ someone special to join the Bellbird team as our Farmers Market Person and the South Christchurch Farmers Market in Beckenham on Sunday.

Starting your day at our production bakery in Woolston, you pack the van with everything you need for the market. Once done setting up and unpacking all the products, you will be serving friendly and curious customers. It is busy, but highly rewarding as the market has a great vibe and our products are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

This role would be ideal for someone who has previous customer experience in a food business or farmers market setting.

  • Permanent ongoing position
  • Every Sunday, approximately 7am-3pm

Tasks & Responsibilities

This role involves being in charge of the market stall so you need to be comfortable and confident on your own. However, we do have a helper join you for part of the shift so it is important you can work with others too.

Main duties involve:

  • Packing and moving the product from bakery to site
  • Setting up and packing down the stall
  • Presenting products in an attractive manner
  • Serving customers and sharing product knowledge
  • Handling money, taking card payments, doing cash up

This position would suit someone looking for consistent and long-term weekend work.

Qualifications & Experience

As this role involves driving a company vehicle, you must have a clean drivers licence and be a safe, confident driver.

Packing and moving product involves heavy lifting (up to 25kg). You will be on your feet all day, you must be confident that this is something that you can do comfortably.

Qualities we are looking for:

  • Experience working unsupervised
  • Helpful and polite nature
  • Able to work quickly to serve customers
  • Cash handling skills
  • Ability to keep a cool head when things are busy.

Experience working in hospitality or a food business would help you ‘sift’ right in here. If you are interested in all things local, our bread and pastries will keep you hooked as we like to keep things seasonal alongside our delicious range of staples.

Benefits of joining us include working with a great product, alongside passionate and friendly people. We offer comprehensive training and ongoing support. Depending on your availability, you will have the opportunity to get involved in other parts of the business.

Note: Applicants for this position will be required to show evidence of right to work in NZ.
