The role can be based at Martin House or at our warehouse, and the hours are flexible to suit you, within Mondays to Fridays, 9am to 5pm.

These opportunities could be one morning or one afternoon a week, and some of the shops are open on a Sunday too. Please call us or email us to see if we have an opening to suit you.
