Careers

Would you like a career in the book industry?

At Red Pepper Online, a division of ProcureTrade (Pty) Ltd, we are always on the lookout for exceptional people to join our team, and when we say exceptional we mean the following:

  • Individuals with an excellent command of the English language, both written and spoken. You should have a love for the spoken word, and understand the concept of good sentence structure, full words, and proper grammar. If you have a great telephone voice too, even better! If you love books and have actually read a few in your lifetime, first prize!
  • Individuals with a passion for AMAZING customer service. Your number one goal in business should be to have a customer walk away with a warm and fuzzy feeling about the experience, AND come back for more.
  • Individuals who work because it's in their blood. NOT because they have to work. If you're working just to pay your bills at the end of the month, or your gambling debts, we're not interested in you. We want people who want to find their purpose in life and to do what they do for a greater cause rather than just for themselves.
  • Individuals who are self-motivated and have a zest for life. Seriously. We don't want people who can't get out of bed in the morning.
  • Individuals who are innovative and can think for themselves. People with I-N-I-T-I-A-T-I-V-E. We don't want to be looking over your shoulder all the time and we value creative input.
  • Individuals who are tech-savvy. If you know how to switch a computer on and have had a few years of experience using programs and applications, know who and what Google is (and how to use it like a research genius), and can manage your calendar effectively, you're what we're looking for.
  • Individuals with a thirst for learning. If you want to join our team and G-R-O-W professionally and personally, we want you too. We'll help you get there.
What we're offering in return:

If we like you, we will offer you a position in our company. We will train you to do what we want you to do. All we ask for is an open mind and a thirst for learning and growth.

If you're interested, this is what we will need from you:
  1. A letter from you, to us, telling us why you want to be a part of our team, the experience and knowledge you have to offer us, and why we should choose you out of everyone else.
  2. A COMPREHENSIVE CV. We want to know everything. Don't leave anything out. It will save us finding out later.
  3. Good, quality references, with contact names and numbers. And not your parent's or children's details. People you've actually worked for.
  4. A decent photo of yourself. We want to see what you look like before we meet you.

Email everything to phillipa@procuretrade.com. Don't phone us and harass us – we like to take our time when choosing new members for our family. We'll phone you once we’ve made our decision.

Remember to put some time and effort into your application as to us it will be a true reflection of who you are and what we can expect from you. If you don’t measure up, you won’t hear from us, but if you do…well, expect a call!

Pepper Regards,

Phillipa Mitchell
Bookshop Manager
