Believe it or not, we’re three months into 2016 already and if time has run away from you so far and stopped you getting your career into gear, don’t worry - it’s not too late!

This issue, we’ve got some really great vacancies at the UK’s best-known supermarkets, headlined by Tesco, who have our front cover advert advertising for night managers with full- and part-time positions on offer. Not such a night owl? No problem - Tesco are also looking for regular managers nationwide.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury’s is looking for managers across the UK so whichever of these ‘big four’ grocers you like the sound of, you’re guaranteed a great career.

If you fancy a career that’s a ‘Lidl’ off the beaten track, the low-cost supermarket is recruiting for area managers. Given the news that they are expanding in the UK this could be an exciting opportunity to grow with this company.

If you’re more fashion-minded, Gap are looking for visual managers, based in London. If you can create a visually stunning store through implementing and elevating the brand guidelines and developing and coaching the visual team then this is the opportunity for you.

T.M Lewin, meanwhile, are looking for management opportunities for ‘all creatures great and tall’ so take a look at this classic British brand.

Debenhams are looking for a great deputy store manager, who will be involved in all areas of the business from taking responsibility for the day to day running of the store to allowing the store manager to operate more strategically. If you’re driven and have plans to run your own store one day, take a look at the vacancy here.

If a career in hospitality is more up your street, there’s a new pizza chain which is launching in the UK market this year which may be right up your street. MOD Pizza is the original superfast pizza company - a cool place to eat and an inspiring place to work. They’re coming to the UK with real ambition and desire to change the world, so if this sounds like an opportunity you’d love to be a part of, apply today.

However, if you’re really looking to change the direction of your career, you may want to consider a career in retail recruitment. If you are a results-driven individual with ambition and the motivation to control your own on-target earnings, email resourcing@rhr.co.uk to find out how a move into recruitment with Retail Human Resources might actually be the best move for you.

Meanwhile, our careers advice this issue features a guide to surviving your exit interview and how to avoid the pitfalls that come with a chance to air your grievances seemingly without consequences...

Meanwhile, our study into what benefits really get people excited culminates with a feature which reveals the truth behind what people actually want from benefits and crucially how many people in the industry have actually had a pay rise in the past 12 months.

We also cover why you should be looking to hire a temp to fill your vacancies, from CEO downward. From filling a skills gap to boosting a stagnant team, temps may be the answer to your next recruitment worry…

Finally, are you a good manager or a great one? One of the most popular seminars at Retail Appointment Live last month, we asked specialist recruiter at Retail Human Resources to go through what she tells candidates in the workshop and share her hints and tips regarding moving from good to great in terms of your management style.

That’s all for this issue - lots of exciting opportunities to be had, so make sure you apply as soon as possible as they won’t be around for long. Haven’t seen anything that fits what you’re looking for? Set yourself up with job alerts and we’ll notify you when your perfect job comes up.
