We’re hiring a full time shopkeeper to start in June

We’re hiring a full time shopkeeper to join the team at General Store starting in June.

We’re looking for a hard working, dynamic and friendly person who is 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. We'd love to hear from you.


Full time roles start at £28k with a £3.9k annual groceries allowance. 42.5 hours a week across 5 days. We will always schedule your days consecutively and rotas are published several weeks in advance.
