Product Sourcing Team

Recently the Golden Rescue store moved in-house and we are looking to create a Product Sourcing Team. The responsibility of the team would be to help source new and different products for the store. You would either put forward creative suggestions or will be provided with items to source. You will be required to compile the information (i.e., product, cost, delivery time/methods, etc.) and submit to the GR Store Team Leads. If you like shopping, especially with someone else’s money, this is the role for you.

Estimated time commitment: a few hours per month
