The enterprise will be overseen by Managing Director, Martin Corban. New stores will come under one brand and, whilst individual stores might be relatively small, they will be run with the institutional values transferred from Martin’s 30 year career at Sainsburys.
AMACOR pledge to invest in training which they perceive is the mainstay to propagating high staff retention. Pay will be competitive with a structure yielding excellent bonus opportunities based upon profitability and performance. Staff knowledge, attitude, appearance and a clean, standardised uniform are seen as important parts of the customer experience.
With the major multiples in reductive mode in terms of staffing, AMACOR are busy recruiting its senior and area management team from within their ranks. Martin has numerous UK wide connections that are being drawn upon to fulfil these roles. Span of control is 5 stores per area manager with each store being run by a supervisor. Larger stores will attract their own Store Manager. Accountancy function is being delivered by DTE auditors of Manchester, who deliver a suite of monthly management accounts and trading information to assist the management team.
