The BIG Corner Shop – Retail Opportunity in a Portas Pilot town

Part-time for 3 months fixed term


Dear friend,

As you may know, MR BIG has a lovely little community Arts and Crafts shop called The Big Corner Shop on the corner of the Market Place in Market Rasen.

We opened just over 3 months ago as a space where budding entrepreneurs and retailers could try their hand at High Street Trading.

The lady who managed the shop for the first 3 months has moved on to pastures new and we’re looking to find a replacement.

It’s a 3 month contract to begin for the start of June. It will be 5 days per week (including Saturdays). Hours are likely to be late afternoons c2pm-4.30pm. But flexibility is required and more hours may be required on certain days by agreement.

The role is managing the shop. Specifically this includes managing the till, cashing up and banking, ensuring the shop is kept in tip top condition and nicely merchandised, managing a rota of volunteers and dealing with the traders who supply the shop.

The rate of pay is £8/hour. Ideally, previous retail experience is required. If you are interested, please return a CV or brief letter outlining your skills and experience to mrbig.coordinator@gmail.com. Closing date for applications is Thursday 23rd May.

Kind regards, MR BIG
