Sainsburys jobs - an overview
Sainsburys jobs come in many different shapes and sizes.
- Sainsburys jobs in-store. These range from apprenticeships to unskilled shelf-stacking jobs.
- Night shift jobs are readily available at Sainsburys.
- Workers of different skill levels are required. Previous retail experience is useful, but not essential. Just remember that most Sainsburys jobs are best suited for workers who enjoy direct customer interaction. To get experience in this type of work, before applying to Sainsburys, try volunteering in a charity shop.
- Sainsbury jobs in management - most suitable for retail professionals who already have experience of working in retail. Might also suit professional manager who have not worked in retail, especially if they have made efforts to get some retail oriented training or experience. Again, volunteering to work in a charity shop might be a good idea, especially if you show innovation and team leadership in such a role.
- Sainsbury jobs in the support centre. Sainsburys Store Support Centre is based in Holborn, Central London. So, obviously, you need to be able to commute into London if you want to find work here. It provides a huge range of careers opportunities including: buying, supply chain, HR, finance and secretarial.
- Sainsbury jobs in logistics (depot jobs). There may be Sainsbury jobs in logistics available at Sainsburys depots in Elstree Hertfordshire, Basingstoke - Hampshire, Rye Park - Hoddesdon Hertfordshire, Hams Hall - Birmingham, Haydock - Merseyside, Waltham Point - Hertfordshire. There are third party depots that deal with Sainsburys goods in Allington Kent, Belfast, Charlton, Corby, Emerald Park Bristol, Feltham Middlesex, Langlands Park - East Kilbride, Northampton, Sherburn Leeds, St Albans, Stoke, Stone Staffordshire, and Tamworth.
- Sainsburys jobs in the pharmacy. Sainsbury’s pharmacies are to be found in over 200 Sainsburys stores, with plans to increase this number. To be successful in applying for Sainsburys pharmacy jobs you must have a passion for healthcare. So if you want to apply for a Sainsburys pharmacy job sometime in the future, think about volunteering for organisations like the St John's ambulance brigade in the meanwhile. This will have multiple benefits. You can only know if you will like working in healthcare by doing some kind of healthcare related work, and volunteering is a great way of dipping your toe in the water. You can also pursue related training, for instance, by taking a first aid or counselling course at your local college. Again, working in a charity shop would provide useful experience, as store-based Sainsburys pharmacy jobs are customer facing and/or involve stock control. If you do this, you might want to concentrate on health related charity shop's run by the British Heart Foundation or Hospices. They might have more access health related opportunities and be an information source for volunteer opportunities and/or training in healthcare. To find a job as a pharmacist, of course, you will need years of professional training and to be a member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
