The Village Shop are searching for a new Sue…Could our new Sue* be you?

Nearly three years ago, Sue and Jayne arrived at the Village Shop just in time to supervise a major refurbishment of the shop – we stripped out all the old fixtures and moved to the Clubroom for two weeks (where we melted all our chocolate bars in the June sunshine). Having survived that challenge – along came Covid and the shop became “a little bit busy” for a while.

Now things have settled down, Sue has decided to step down, and is planning to travel the world (and Yorkshire) before the next global crisis arrives!

Sue will be leaving us on 16th April, so the shop is looking for a new Assistant Manager to work alongside Jayne and with our team of volunteers. This is a part time job working 18 hours a week, and there is a morning shift on one in four Saturdays. Apart from serving our customers, the main responsibilities of the job are looking after the Volunteer rota, booking-in our deliveries with the occasional collection from our cash and carry in Kettering.

If this sounds like you, then drop an email to with your contact details and we’ll send you full details of the job.

(*) …you don’t have to be called Sue to apply for this job!
