Retail

Help promote ministry resources, and advise guests on their purchases at the Spring Harvest stand. You will have some retail experience, the confidence to operate a cash till and handle guest queries, and plenty of stamina for lifting, carrying and spending much of the day standing.

Throughout the event, our retail team maintain and run the Spring Harvest stand and satellite sales points, advising guests on their purchases, and ensuring they have all the ministry resources they need to take home from the event.

This is a busy customer-focussed role with a strong emphasis on sales. A typical day will involve stock control, keeping the stand looking tidy, promoting recommended resources of the day, advising and serving guests, taking orders for teaching resources and operating the tills.

There can be quite a bit of lifting and carrying of heavy boxes of stock, and you will be on your feet for most of the day.
