We are searching for an experienced Produce Assistant. If the thought of helping people make informed choices at Townsville’s most iconic food retailer a-peels to you, read on!
You love fresh produce and so do we. Perhaps we’ll make the perfect pear!
Otto’s Harvest is the produce arm of Otto’s Market, with a sustainable outlook and a nostalgic sensibility to its operations. Our emphasis is on serving the community while sourcing quality, seasonal produce primarily from the hard-working local growers that contribute to North Queensland’s incredible food bowl.
2019 will see the unveiling of a second Harvest location, and we are looking for a proactive Produce Assistant to be the first point of contact for the department, whilst delivering the best in customer service and promoting the importance of eating seasonally and thinking locally.
ABOUT THE ROLE
As the Produce Assistant, you will provide support to the Produce Manager and your team. This is a hands-on role, and as all of our produce is farm fresh, it must be handled, prepared and merchandised correctly in order to deliver the highest level of quality and customer satisfaction in our stores.
In this supporting role, you will be responsible for receiving and preparing product, whilst creating and maintaining enticing produce floor displays, fulfilling orders and answering customer enquiries.
This is an exciting opportunity for a foodie who is passionate about making fresh produce shopping an engaging and memorable experience.
You find teaching and demonstrating the benefits of fresh produce fascinating, and consider yourself a bit of a green thumb. You are a keen foodie who loves nothing more than to handpick your purchases based on quality, freshness and seasonal availability. You understand that our clientele want an enhanced experience, from a greengrocer who only chooses the best, whilst featuring unique produce they won’t find at the conglomerate chains.
You are highly organised with excellent verbal and written communication skills. You hold a current Food Handlers Certificate, and as you will be working across two sites, a current driver’s licence and reliable vehicle are essential. A forklift licence is highly desirable.
You can totally win friends with salad!
