St German’s Shop and Post Office Staff and volunteers
Staff management and leadership
Since the shop’s inception, our previous manager, Sara Dawe, and the recent appointment of Jennie Lewington as general manager and Sub Post Mistress have overseen and progressed the successful development of the business. With the support of up to 40 volunteers the shop and Post Office remain a vital and flexible part of the community. Jennie has the support of the seven-strong (volunteer) committee, who ensure a robust financial and strategic management. The perception of the shop by the wider community is seen as crucial and regular efforts to both maintain and increase its profile are undertaken. There are regular appearances in local publications as well as a Facebook page and occasionally on local television. Training is ongoing to ensure a reliable and consistently high level of service.
(there are nearly 40 so we can’t show them all!)
We are particularly looking for volunteers who would be willing to train in the Post Office side of our lovely shop. No previous experience is necessary as full training will be given.
We are trying to build a pool of Post Office trained volunteers. Shifts can be regular or irregular as suits the volunteer, and this would help us cover holidays and sickness.
If you think this may be of interest then please pop into the shop and speak to Jennie or any Post Office volunteer. Usual shop volunteers are of course welcome at any time.
