Endeavour Group has announced it’s looking to hire more 4400 team members at Dan Murphy’s and BWS as it gears up for summer.
Endeavour Group noted in its FY21 results presentation that all major categories of drinks were in growth in FY21.
“As customers deal with COVID they’ve very much sought to treat themselves and Dan’s has been a big beneficiary of that customer move,” CEO Steve Donohue noted while unveiling the company first financial results since formally separating from Woolworths Group in June.
Dan Murphy’s has today started recruiting for more than 2000 Customer Assistant roles. The majority of roles are casual with a minimum of 20 hours per week on offer, and come with heaps of benefits.
“We have a wonderful team culture, and team members – including casuals – receive on-going training and have access to great benefits including team discounts on drinks and groceries,” said Endeavour Group Chief People Officer Alison Merner.
“We encourage people from all walks of life to apply – from university students to retirees. We are looking for motivated people who are service-minded and have a keen interest in the world of drinks. We work with spirit and we’re team players and we expect the same from our team members, so if you bring the can-do attitude we will teach you the rest!,” Merner said.
Dan Murphy’s is looking for almost double the amount of Customer Assistant roles compared to last year as it manages the impacts of COVID-19, while preparing for summer.
BWS is currently recruiting for 400 roles, and will start recruiting for an additional 2000 Customer Assistant roles for their 1400 stores across the country from the first week of October.
In total across Dan Murphy’s and BWS, there will be more than 1200 roles available in NSW, almost 1000 roles in Victoria, more than 900 roles in Queensland, almost 400 roles in West Australia, more than 250 roles in South Australia, around 75 roles in Tasmania, 60 roles in ACT and 30 roles in the Northern Territory.
“We offer great opportunities for career development within our stores and the wider business, and provide training programs for team members to help them grow with us,” Merner said. “A casual role with us could be the start to a great career with Australia’s leading drinks and hospitality business.”
Drinks retail stores have been deemed essential in all states and territories during the Covid-19 pandemic, and all BWS and Dan Murphy’s stores have a range of safety measures including protective plexiglass screens at checkouts, signage to help customers socially distance, strict limits on the number of customers in stores, sanitisation stations and contactless delivery and pick up.
“The wellbeing of our team, customers and communities is our highest priority. We strongly encourage our team members to get vaccinated, and to support the Covid-19 vaccination roll out, we offer full time and part time team members paid leave to get vaccinated,” Merner explained.
Endeavour Group has a range of other support for team members if they are impacted by the pandemic. This includes special support measures for team members and their families if they are self isolating in line with advice from the health authorities, and access to special paid leave, including for casuals.
To be successful, applicants need to be at least 18 years of age, and have a passion for customer service.
