Retail General Manager
£55 - £65,000 + Bonus & Full Package
Most experts will tell you that retail is hard. They might be right. In many ways, the retail landscape has changed and companies that haven’t changed with it will not survive. Thankfully many have and this business is one of them. Profitable and stable but always looking for new ways to delight their customers, they’ve maintained their position in one of retail's growth markets and have many exciting future plans and initiatives.
You’re a bright and capable retailer with bags of enthusiasm and the potential to go further. A willingness to learn will help as will an entrepreneurial approach and a commercial streak a mile wide. Particularly skilled in all aspects of profit protection, you’ll know how to use your analytical skills and ability to spot additional opportunities to minimise shrink and improve the bottom line.
Reporting to the Regional Manager the role takes full responsibility for all day-to-day site operations including:
- Being the leader with regards to all short, medium and long-term store plans.
- Setting standards with regards the overall layout, the look and feel of the site, product mix and profit protection.
- Controlling all budgets and comfortable managing the P&L.
- Developing the business with regards to overall stock package and layout in order to drive sales.
And what do you get in return? Well for a start you’ll be supported in a structure that is there when you need it, invisible when you don’t. You’ll get full training of course but you’ll also be treated like an adult. The money is pretty good, there’s a decent bonus on top and a very grown-up attitude to work-life balance. If things are going well and it’s not Christmas or something, no one will expect you in every weekend and late nights are rare. This will be your store, you run it.
A household name in the sector, they've been doing what they've been doing for a long time but are always open to new ideas and always looking for ways to grow and improve. They're well known and very well respected, financially rock-solid and looking to the future with plenty of optimism.
