Michael Beale, the owner/operator of Mitre 10 MEGA Botany, has made many changes to the store during 2018, and we are currently in the final weeks of extensive and very exciting renovations including a new garden centre with a new brand Columbus Coffee Café opening soon.

Do you love to garden? Are you looking for a FULL Time role? Would you love to assist our customers with their gardening needs? Did you know that Mitre 10 is New Zealand’s leading gardening retailer and we have an opportunity within our Mitre 10 MEGA store in Botany where you can help guide our customers with their “green” supplies! 

Your gardening passion may come from time in your own back yard, and you have a knowledge and interest in plants, or you may 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 fertilizers 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.

To succeed in this role, you will have:

  • 100% customer focus, consistently capturing all our customers’ needs
  • Excellent communication
  • A knowledge of garden hardware, green goods and associated products is preferred
  • Experience in the retail industry, including stock management
