Head of shop

At Merlin it’s all about all the beautiful products from the sea. Everything is farm fresh. The oysters and seafood are all around you. The presentation is always perfect and we also make that experience possible at home. Your passion for the sea radiates from you and that translates into a perfectly organized shop and sales.

You, as Merlin’s captain shop, oversee all the details of the shop. You manage your colleagues and you really don’t overlook anything. You also serve our customers in the shop quickly and correctly and you prepare the cold starters for the guests in the restaurant. A varied job with a lot of responsibility. You always think one step ahead, you are an example for your colleagues and stress leaves you (almost completely) cold. You’re curious. You know the difference between cockles and clams and are happy to share that knowledge with the customer and your colleagues. Moreover, with a broad smile you meet all kinds of people from different backgrounds and from different cultures.
