Known to generations of South Africans as ‘Woolies’, Woolworths is the only retailer of its kind in South Africa, offering fashion, food, beauty and homeware under its own brand name, as well as some carefully selected, well-known premium brands. We also offer a range of financial services in partnership with Absa Bank.
The first Woolworths store opened its doors in Cape Town in October 1931. Since then, we’ve been building on our reputation for superior quality, exciting innovation and excellent value. We now have over 400 stores across South Africa, Africa and the Middle East, and our influence extends to Australasia through Woolworths Holdings, our parent company.
We’ve always been keen to attract and retain the best retail professionals, and were among the first local retailers to offer our employees a pension fund, medical aid and maternity leave. Our generous maternity benefits are frequently used as a benchmark for other organisations. Other benefits include discounts, educational assistance, disability benefits, death cover including a memorial educational fund and funeral cover.
We also believe that exceptional effort deserves to be rewarded. You might receive an ‘on the spot’ award for going above and beyond the call of duty, or be nominated for a Difference Award for making an extraordinary contribution to the business.
For us, it’s vital that our team achieves work / life balance which is why we provide an extensive nationwide wellness support service that addresses every aspect of employee wellbeing (physical, social, mental and psychosocial).
The world is ever changing, and while we’ve grown, evolved and adapted to the changing world, the Woolworths brand has remained true to its core values of quality and style, service, integrity, value, energy, innovation and sustainability.
Whether in our stores, our head office or our supply chain, the world of Woolies is an exciting, dynamic and challenging one that offers wonderful opportunities and tremendous scope for growth for employees at all levels.
