Company Details

Costcutter supermarkets, off licences and convenience stores have been serving groceries to local communities since the mid 1980s. What started out as an enterprise with just a handful of outlets in York has grown into a franchise operation encompassing more than 1,700 stores.

Founded by Colin Graves in 1986, Costcutter still has its company headquarters near Dunnington, York and provides jobs for hundreds of people around the United Kingdom.

The heavily franchised-based business model that Costcutter uses means that they don’t offer very many supermarket jobs for students from a central recruitment office. Instead, if you are hoping to find some part time work at a Costcutter near where you are studying then you are advised to contact the local store directly for current opportunities. Roles available for students could include store assistants, check out staff and drivers.

You can find out the locations of Costcutter stores near to your college, university or home town by entering your postcode into their store locator. You can then call into the store to enquire about current part time positions or holiday jobs - or send them a copy of your CV and covering letter to keep on file in case any new supermarket jobs crop up in the future.

As well as the majority of franchise-run stores, the Costcutter organisation does own some of its own stores - and, if one of those is in your area, then you will find details of any latest in-store full or part time roles for students on the Current Vacancies section of their website.

From that same page, you will also find details of any openings at their head offices in Dunnington. Around a hundred people are based at the Costcutter headquarters in Yorkshire and a variety of support roles are on offer.

The biggest single quality you will need to be a successful candidate for a supermarket job with Costcutter - whether full time, part time, franchised or in-house - will be a keen sense of the importance of great customer service. You will also highlight your unique talent, enthusiasm and passion to secure a job with Costcutter.
