Habitat have been shaping the way people live for over 50 years. Don’t believe us? Then perhaps you’ve never used a wok or slept under a duvet. We’re the store that introduced these (and a whole lot more) to the UK.
It’s not just our designs that have personality – our people are pretty great too.
When you join us, you don’t just join Habitat. You join the Sainsbury’s Argos Group, the UK’s leading multi-channel retailer.
What does this mean for you? For a start, you’ll have the opportunity to take your career in all sorts of exciting directions.
So come in and make yourself at home at Habitat – we’ve got a lot of exciting things going on.
With recent expansion into Sainsbury’s stores we are looking for a Team Leader to join our Newcastle store.
As a Team Leader you will play a key role in supporting the Store Manager and assuming responsibility for your store as required.
The role will have a real people focus, motivating and engaging the team as well as being a solid planner with top-notch organisational skills.
You will need to be passionate and dedicated to bring out the best in your Mini Habitat, using your operational know-how to make it perform brilliantly.
You'll be responsible for offering our customers an outstanding service including creating a welcoming atmosphere where customers feel inspired about our designs and products, assisting customers in placing orders and be a brand ambassador by living and breathing our company values.
With your experience in retail you will confidently articulate your ability to improve business results as well as lead from the front by engaging and inspiring your team.
In return we offer a competitive salary, 30 days’ annual leave per year, generous staff discounts in Habitat, Argos and Sainsbury’s stores (after qualifying period) as well as a Pension, Share Save and other benefits.
Everyone is welcome at the Sainsbury’s Group, and we’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer that champions a diverse and inclusive culture. If you’ve read about this fantastic opportunity and are excited about working for us, but you’re not sure if you’re 100% there with your experience – we’d still love to hear from you! Just make an application and we’ll be in touch from there (we’re also happy to discuss flexible working options if normal office hours aren’t always doable).
