Market Set-up Team Leaders

Buxton Markets CIC is seeking two Market Set-up Team Leaders to manage the set-up and take down of their Tuesday and Saturday markets, and the maintenance of market equipment and vehicles.

The key responsibilities of the job are to:

  • Work alongside and manage the team that sets up and takes down the stalls.
  • Liaise with traders as they arrive and set up in their allocated position, making adjustments to the market layout for any late changes to trader attendance.
  • Resolve any immediate issues that traders may have.
  • Ensure that stall set-up/take down and trader set-up/take down are conducted safely and effectively.
  • Take care of market stalls and other equipment by making regular checks, undertaking some basic maintenance tasks and identifying equipment which needs to be repaired.

A more detailed set of Roles and Responsibilities can be seen at Market Set-up Team Leader Job Description

The job requires an average of 70 hours per month to be split between the two appointees. Hours will normally include around 4-6 hours on market days (Tuesday and Saturday) on a split shift between  5:00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. and 3.30 p.m. to 6.00 p.m.. There may be some variation in the hours on the market and some hours will be required at other times within the average 70 hours per month.  While nominally 35 hours per month each, the division or hours between the two Team Leaders will be agreed after interview dependent on individual skills and expectations.

The salary will be paid monthly calculated at the rate of £15 per hour; so for an average 35 hours the salary would be £525 per month.

Candidates must be physically fit and reliable due to the hours and nature of the work.  A full driving licence for a light goods vehicle and trailer over 750kg (Category C1E), is essential.

The roles and responsibilities will be reviewed within the first 6 months and additional responsibilities may be agreed with an appropriate adjustment to monthly salary and hours.
