Why should you kick start your career with us?
If you are looking into a career in retail, working in store operations is the perfect way to kick start this career. Our Student opportunities and New Graduate Incentive Program allows candidates the opportunity to develop new skills alongside thriving in a hands-on, results driven environment.
Not only do you get to learn every aspect of running a store, you are well paid to do so. To be clear, we are not offering a classroom learning program. In both roles, our candidates are hands on, pragmatic people who use their initiative to learn from the best and lead from the front. Whilst it helps to have worked in retail before and maybe led a team in the past; we are really after people hungry to learn the ins and outs of a retail store and keen to test their skills in a dynamic and fast paced environment.
If you are hungry for it, you will be given high levels of accountability and the freedom to act autonomously, as quickly as you are ready. There is always something to do and a complex problem to work through. You will never be bored, and we believe that we provide a perfect environment for you to apply classroom learning into a real life environment.
You will work hard, and you will get your hands dirty. You will also be able to test your planning and organization skills, hone your multi-tasking proficiency, and work alongside experienced managers to help you develop and expand your leadership toolkit. You will also get to develop your competency to work respectfully, knowledgeably and effectively in the communities in northern Canada, where you not only work but also live.
If you are interested in building a career in retail, then we currently have two opportunities for you to consider:
Our temporary student contract positions are perfect for students looking to gain valuable experience in the retail industry while they are still studying. You will have the opportunity to earn and save money while working and living in distant locations across northern Canada, either during your summer break (May to September) or while studying online through remote learning methods. We offer flexibility in our contract terms, offering anything from 3 to 12-month contracts.
You will become an essential part of our hardworking retail team and help us make a difference in our stores and communities. To be successful, you need to be customer-driven, a great team player and have the capability to jump in and get involved in both the store and the community on arrival. In return, you will be provided with a competitive compensation and benefits package, including food and housing allowances.
