We aim to get back to all applicants to confirm whether they have been successful with their application in reaching the next stage of the recruitment process. This can take between one and two weeks from receipt of your application. At some times of the year we experience a higher volume of applications and it may take longer. We also stress the importance of submitting an accompanying letter in support of your CV/application form. Without this we may not contact you.


We are open seven days a week throughout the year, only closing for four days over the Christmas period, as well as New Year’s Day and Easter Sunday. Weekends are our busiest time and staff on the shopfloor should be prepared to work either Saturday or Sunday each week.
