Who we’re looking for:

Our ideal candidate will share a genuine passion for retail and customer service and be complimentary to the store leadership team. You will have previous experience supervising a team in a fast-paced environment, have open communication and a genuine interest in coaching and developing others.

This role is a great opportunity for an aspiring retail leader to grow their leadership career in a supportive team environment.

You’ll need:

Our customers are important to us. Bunnings trade 7 days a week, opening early and closing late on weekdays and on weekends. To provide the best experience you will be required to work a variety of different shifts during the week. We encourage you to go check out your local store to get a feel for what it might be like to become part of the Bunnings team.
