Job Descriptions

The role of the retail merchandiser is extremely important to the financial well-being of any organisation as they decide which products to purchase and how these are displayed to best effect.

As a retail assistant in a food business you could be employed in a large supermarket, greengrocers or even a small specialist food shop or delicatessen; this means that your duties can vary.

The retail manager is responsible for running the store on a day to day basis – in food retail this could be anything from a small delicatessen through to a large supermarket.
