CASUAL Service Assistant - Garden

At Mitre 10 our vision is to inspire Kiwis to improve their homes. Mitre 10 MEGA Whangarei is under new local ownership and is a dynamic and growing company with a vision to provide outstanding customer service, great quality products and the best value and expertise to enable our customers to have a great DIY experience. This is your chance to work in a "big box" format store and be part of a passionate and committed team. Kiwis love to garden and we love to assit them with their gardening needs.

As Northland's leading garden retailer and due to expanding growth we are looking for CASUAL SERVICE ASSISTANTS with green fingers and a customer focused attitude to join our highly regarded Garden department. This department will soon be entering the high volume Spring and Summer period so you can expect to be kept busy.

PLEASE NOTE: This position will not suit a student as you do need to be available during the day throughout the week. This is a chance to share your expertise and help guide our customers to create and improve their gardens. You will need to have a flexible approach as there will be a need to assist in other areas of the store from time to time.

You must be fit and energetic as heavy lifting is a key part of the role.

To fit into our team, you will have:

* Enthusiasm and team spirit

* Good communication skills

* A passion for customer service excellence

* A strong knowledge of plants and horticultural products

* Good time management

* A quick and alert mind, with the ability to adapt and be flexible.

Your gardening passion may come from time in your own backyard or you many have undertaken horticultural training - either way you will enjoy helping our customers select the right plants, along with all the dry goods and hardware, whether it's fertilisers and pest control or gardening gloves and a wheel barrow. Ideally you will be experienced with the sale of both green and dry garden goods, although applicants with a proven retail background and who are eager to learn will be considered.


If the above postion sounds like you and you would like the opportunity to become part of a dynamic team who have a committment to providing exceptional service to our customers and you are available NOW, then please foward your CV and a covering letter via this website.

All applicants must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
