Casual Sales Assistant


Reference: CSA26

Come and join the crew! We are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic person to join as a Casual Sales Assistant at our popular Riccarton store. If you love the outdoor life, you're likely to love learning about and selling our fantastic range of boating, fishing, kayaking, RV and camping products.

This position is Casual and therefore has no set days nor minimum hours. We're looking for someone with availability on both weekdays and weekend days. This position is likely to suit a school or university student (minimum year 11) or someone with flexibility who would enjoy being part of the crew but does not require a set amount of hours every week or whose availability may fluctuate.

It is Burnsco’s policy to support and recommend Covid-19 vaccination.  Our goal is to have 100% vaccinated staff.   Due to our Health and Safety obligations, applicants will be asked about their vaccination status and will only be considered for a role which, pursuant to the Company Covid-19 Health and Safety Risk Assessment, can reasonably safely be carried out by a person with that status.   An applicant is under no obligation to disclose their vaccination status but if they do not wish to, we will be obliged to assume they are unvaccinated when assessing their health and safety risk due to Covid-19. 

Employee Benefits

As well as a competitive rate of pay, we also offer:

  • generous staff discount on all our products

Requirements for this role

You will have:

  • knowledge about boating, fishing and/or motorhoming 
  • a "can do" attitude
