Each Saturday at the M&S Simply Food store in Beckenham, Kent, I set up a mobile table on the shop floor, then build an eye-catching display of the specific retail item(s) I'm responsible for promoting and selling. The latter includes placing pre-printed price tickets, and promotional barkers if relevant, in prominent positions on the table. The bulk of my working day is taken up with encouraging as many customers as possible to taste samples of the particular product(s) I'm displaying; this is, of course, with the main aim of generating considerable sales uplifts for the store. To that end, I very recently sold-out of a premium swiss biscuit product and came close to doing the same with a similar substitute product towards the end of my second session.

The part-time job has very similar duties my Tactical Taster position on Saturdays at M&S Simply Food. However, the differences are that I am based primarily at Sainsbury's superstore in Sydenham, Kent, and the average number of days per week are two, usually Thursday and Friday.
