Coles jobs up for grabs

By | April 15, 2015

APPLICATIONS are now open for more than 100 jobs at the new Coles supermarket in Torquay, scheduled to open in June.

Team members appointed to positions at the market-style supermarket at Torquay Village will be involved in customer service, on the check outs, in the delicatessen, fresh produce, meat, bakery and grocery areas, as well as in the product replenishment and administration areas.

Coles state general manager Leah Weckert said Coles had already begun the employment process for the supermarket.

“By June, we will have employed nearly 100 new people to work at Torquay with Coles team members from other stores.

“The new store will offer a huge range of fresh food and groceries and importantly create a large number of local employment opportunities for locals.” The Torquay supermarket will feature an open market-style fresh produce section, displaying an impressive range of locally sourced fruit and vegetables on ice for optimum freshness.
