Careers with the Society

Co-op staffThe Tamworth Co-operative Society is one of the area’s biggest employers. Our staff base across Staffordshire and South Derbyshire currently numbers more than 300 people. Our business is extremely broad, covering a department store, a large supermarket, 11 food stores, five post offices, and eight funeral offices. Consequently the Society can offer a diverse range of exciting job opportunities suiting a wide variety of skills and qualifications.

Our success has been built on the loyalty and quality of our employees. We have also had the benefit of great continuity of management, having had just eight chief executives since our formation in 1886. Many of our employees have remained with us for life.

The Society enjoys an excellent reputation for its commitment to members, staff and the local community. We have also won accolades and a national award for our caring policies and accounting standards. The Tamworth Co-operative Society is an equal opportunities employer providing first class support and training to employees. If your standards and aspirations meet our own, we’d love to hear from you.
