We’re hiring part & full time shopkeepers

We’re hiring part & full time shopkeepers to join the team at General Store.

We’re looking for hard working and friendly people who are as obsessed with good food and drink as we are. An eye for detail is key.

Home cooking is at the heart of everything we do at General Store and is one of the guiding motivators in deciding what we sell in store. Our shopkeepers love to cook, and they prepare lunch for each other from the shop every day.

We love London restaurants, and many of the products we sell are inspired by the food and ingredients we encounter there. Our shopkeepers spend a lot of their time thinking about what they’ll cook for dinner and where they’ll eat next.

This role values a deep interest and personal culture of food and cooking over any experience in similar food retail roles. An ability to convey your love for good food combined with a strong work ethic and a willingness to learn are the key qualities of a General Store shopkeeper.

Multitasking is crucial. We believe in sharing responsibility for the running of the shop across the team and expect our shopkeepers to excel in all areas of the business.

If these things speak to you then please get in touch. Tell us about yourself, your background and food story, what you love to cook and eat, what you’ll bring to the role, and why you want to be part of General Store.

A formal CV isn’t a requirement, but please list relevant former work experience if it adds to your application, particularly if you have experience making coffee. We'd love to hear from you.


Part time roles start at £12.50ph and full time roles are salaried starting at £28k with paid lunch breaks. Shifts never finish later than 5:30pm

All of our shopkeepers receive a £15 per shift groceries allowance to spend in store with an additional 30% discount beyond this.
