This isn’t our first rodeo. We’re supporting Chestnut for the third year running, offering opportunities for individuals to earn over £800 for just one week’s work.

Tell me more…

Chestnut is an industry leader in importing fireworks to the UK and we’ll be working in 393 Morrison’s stores across the country this year, clocking up over 31,476 hours, selling their spectacular products and delighting customers for their seasonal celebrations and displays.

In previous years we‘ve run the campaign across a 10 day period, however this year we’ll be completing the same number of hours as previous years in just 7 days. In doing so this is allowing us to have more people working on the counters during peak trading times – enabling you to deliver the best possible service to the customers and to maximise sales!

What does the job involve?

We’re looking for confident individuals with great customer service skills to:

  • Manage the firework concession within Morrisons stores
  • Handle cash/card payments
  • Promote and drive sales within your store
  • Keep the firework cabinet stocked

Due to the nature of this role, applicants must be 18 or over as you will be adhering to the Challenge 25 process when selling fireworks.

When do you need me?

This year our support in store will be from Monday 31st October - Sunday 6th November. We have a range of shifts available including 3, 4, 5 & 6 hours at a time. It’s completely up to you and the hours available in your local Morrison’s store/s as to how much you could potentially work and earn from this job.

Ideally, we’re looking for people who are able to cover various shifts across the week, with a flexible approach to working evenings and the weekend (ultimately still fitting around your lifestyle).

What about the pay?

At £16 per hour, you’ll be compensated well for your excellent service and selling skills during your time behind the counter.

Where do I sign up?

Heard enough, and eager to get your name on the list? Great! Applying for the role in your local store is as simple as heading over to the ‘Careers’ section of our website and locating opportunities in your local store/s. Click on the apply button and away you go.

You’ll receive full training/briefing for this campaign and will be a valued member of our team; with Area Manager support available throughout.  

This is a great opportunity for you to join the UK’s largest field team and to really make a difference in store every day.

So what are you waiting for? Apply here.


It’s not all business here, so we’ll leave you with some firework facts that we find pretty fascinating…

Fireworks originated in China around 2000 years ago

The birth of fireworks can be traced back to 7th century China. But there’s further evidence that primitive Chinese firecrackers date back as far as 200BC. It’s thought that a Chinese cook accidentally invented gunpowder by mixing three common kitchen ingredients! Today, it’s estimated that China produces around 90% of the world’s fireworks.

Disney is the largest consumer of fireworks in the world

The Walt Disney Company is said to be the largest consumer of fireworks in the world. It’s estimated that they spend around $50 million a year on their displays. That’s no Mickey Mouse operation!

The largest ever firework display consisted of 810,904 fireworks

According to Guinness World Records the biggest ever fireworks display was achieved by Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in the Philippines, who welcomed 2016 in with a record-breaking bang. The display lasted for 1 hour, 1 minute and 32.35 seconds and, sadly, it poured with rain the whole way through.

150mph is the recorded speed of a rocket

It’s not quite the speed of light, but the shell of a rocket shoots up as high as 200 metres before it dazzles us in the night sky.
