There's no doubt about it, our people are the reason our customers stay so loyal. They come in for our products - they stick around for the advice our people give them. So it's impossible to overestimate the importance of our Supervisors. As well as opening and closing the store and driving its sales, you'll support your store manager in every way you can - stepping in for them when needed and helping to train up the team too.
There's a lot to be excited about here. From learning all about vitamins and supplements to helping people live healthier, happier lives, you can use this as a stepping stone to one day running a store of your own. Because that's what it's all about - helping you, and our customers, to find their happy place. With an amazing team around you, industry leading products and first class training, it's everything you need to get to where you want to be. (Unless where you want to be is on a sun lounger in Barbados, we can't do anything about that.)
Whether you're a supervisor already or a store associate looking to step up, we want to hear from you. It's challenging. It's hard work. The training can be pretty intense. But, if you're interested in healthy living and want to help people make better life choices, there's an amazing career path here for the taking. (Happy place, see?)
When it comes to specialist health and well being retailers, we're number one. The biggest in Europe. We've over 1,000 stores (and more on the way) in almost every major city and town across the UK and Ireland - not to mention more than 80 stores around the world too. It's big scale stuff. And you could be part of it all
