Are you a Shop Manager looking for a great place to reach your full potential?

We have ambitious plans for our future development and need an enthusiastic Shop Manager to join our team and make a difference.

About the role:

The position is 35 hours per week, 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday with weekends on a rota basis.

As Shop Manager, you will be responsible for managing volunteers, and the general running of the shop, ensuring sales targets are achieved.

You will work collaboratively with volunteers to ensure excellent customer service to promote the presence of the shop within the local community. 

Some of your key responsibilities will include:

  • Recruitment, training and coordinating volunteers
  • Administrative and financial procedures
  • Merchandising, presentation and display
  • Stock rotation, sorting and pricing of donated goods to achieve optimum income

About you:

With a broad range of donated and bought in products, we are looking for a dynamic and flexible manager who has the customer and the charity at the heart of everything they do; who are commercially aware, driven and hands on to maximise profits, helping us to raise valuable funds.

You need to have the passion and leadership skills to motivate a team of volunteers.

The successful candidate will have previous retail experience (ideally in a Charity Shop environment) as well as experience of cash handling and banking. You will have good organisational skills and the ability to implement effective window displays.

Epos experience and a current UK driving license are also essential.

In this varied and exciting role you will be instrumental in ensuring your shop is a successful part of the community, working closely with our Rehoming Centre in Aspley Guise and representing the National Animal Welfare Trust.

As part of our commitment to making NAWT a great place to work, we offer access to the following employee benefits:

  • 25 days annual leave plus statutory bank holidays (pro-rated for part time staff).
  • Contributory pension.
  • Access to a free 24/7 support service providing support including legal, financial, emotional and medical advice.

So if you have retail experience and are the kind of person who enjoys driving sales through great customer service, whilst knowing that the work you do helps our animals in need – this may be the job for you!
