  • Taking payments and managing cash
  • Managing stock and supplies
  • Keeping the stall looking good and well-organised at all times
  • Keeping the team up to date, flagging / helping resolve any issues and contributing ideas for increasing sales 
  • Being friendly and cheery even on the cold, wet days (heater provided!)


  • Retail sales / customer-facing experience
  • Experience of managing cash, stock and supplies
  • A positive, friendly personality and (of course!) a good sense of humour
  • Bonus if you've a curious mind and a general love of travel, adventure and the Great British outdoors

Dates (note that training and market set-up will occur a few days before the markets open):

  • Winchester: Thursday 21st November – Sunday 22nd December (hours Sun - Weds 10am - 6.30pm, Thu - Sat 10am - 8pm)

APPLICATION DETAILS please include a short (ideally 1-page) CV and a brief note saying why you're keen to join us and what you'd bring to the party (aside from a warm coat, although that is important!)   

Although this is a short-term gig, ultimately we're looking for at least one hire to join us in a longer-term sales role (part-time), so let us know during the application if that's of interest.
