Who are we?

Farro is a premium grocery store with six stores across Auckland.

We support hundreds of local food producers, providing an inspiring, quality food offering and outstanding customer service. We focus on creating an empowering and caring environment where people can thrive and build their careers.

Who are we looking for?

We are on the hunt for an experienced FMCG retail leadership professional whose heart is with team engagement and next-level customer experience.

Leading the Farro team and working with a tight group of dedicated team players, this role focuses on engaging and motivating the team to provide that all-important first impression to delight our customers. Working as part of a larger management team, this is an on-the-floor, lead-by-example role where team development and leadership is key.

You will be role-modelling your skills in merchandising, ordering, stock management and customer service. An interest in quality fruit and vegetables is a definite advantage in this role. A tertiary qualification in a related discipline would help you to understand the numbers and the bigger picture, so would be a big benefit. Leadership experience is a pre-requisite, as we want to hear how you would keep your team motivated and engaged. You will also need to be able to comfortably lift 20kg+ in a safe manner.
