Tignish Co-op reorganization results in need for more staff
Darren MacKinnon, new Manager of the Tignish Co-op, is overseeing changes and growth in all departments.
“We have improved customer access to feed mill products by moving the products to the Tignish Home Hardware store,” says Darren. “It has only been a few short weeks since the move, and customers are pleased to be able to purchase product six days a week. We have already seen an increase in sales.”
The hardware store was recently renovated, and stock has been increased. Presently, the hardware store has 17 staff members, including students.
“We recently hired another truck driver to accommodate more deliveries, and now we are seeking to hire an outside sales staff member for building supplies.”
Darren says other changes include expansion of the existing bakery at the Tignish Co-op grocery store, which now offers a wider variety of fresh products. “We are currently seeking to hire a bakery clerk to meet the demand.”
Essential skills sought after when hiring
Darren looks for applicants with the following essential skills sets:
- Strong interpersonal skills
- Strong organizational skills
- Ability to work as part of a team
“I certainly see potential for further growth in sales and services to be offered throughout the association.”
He welcomes interested job seekers to email resumés directly to him at [email protected].
