Without them our customers wouldn’t be able to pick up their favourite ingredients or get excited over our Specialbuys, which is why it’s so much more than just a career to the team. And as we continue with our ambitious growth plans, we need a number of motivated Pricing Assistants to join the team, helping to secure exciting products at the best prices.
