With over 800 outlets in the United Kingdom, Iceland is a great place for students and other young people to look for supermarket jobs. Graduates too can find higher entry level jobs at Iceland, moving into store management or support roles within a short time of joining the company.
Iceland started as a company in 1970 when partners Malcolm Walker and Peter Hinchcliffe opened their first frozen food store in Oswestry. Five years later, the pair had amassed more than a dozen stores across Wales, where the Iceland head offices were later to be based at Deeside in Flintshire.
Iceland posts profits of over £100 million and has generated over 2,500 new jobs in some years, so there is plenty of scope to find employment with this successful supermarket chain. As their careers website says: “Whether you want a fun, flexible local job – or to sit on the board – you can be sure we’ll go all out to help you reach your goals.”
A range of jobs are available in Iceland supermarkets at all levels. From retail and store assistants to home delivery drivers, supervisors and store managers.
At head offices in Flintshire, North Wales, Iceland offer a range of support and back up roles to interest people wishing to follow various career paths. Teams based at Iceland headquarters in Deeside include Buying, Customer Services, Finance, IT, Human Resources, Marketing, Merchandising and other support services.
But, if you are interested in working at an Iceland near where you are studying then you will need to have bags of energy and enthusiasm to cut it in their fast moving environment. In return for your hard work and dedication to customer service you will receive competitive wages, training, support and other benefits that you would expect from a company that has been listed top of ‘The Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For.’
