Retail Store Manager

£35 – 40,000 + Package & Bonuses


The Person

You know you’re good at your job and, to be better, you’d like more responsibility and more accountability. Working in a large retail business has its advantages and you’ve done well so far but you know you could make the store more customer-friendly, more commercial and, most importantly improve the bottom line if someone would just let you make your own decisions. You also love managing a team and know what makes them all tick and how to get the very best out of them. If your current company would only let you.

The Role

This is a job with a lot of room. You get every report you need to do it, but trading the site is largely up to you. Floor layout and stock reordering and replenishment has to be for you to decide; you know your customers and know what they buy and when and you’re across all the promotions anyway so how about letting you decide what you need, how much you need and when you need it? You’ll have support to make this sort of decision of course, reporting to an Area Manager and liaising with B&M but that doesn’t change things; the success of the site is your success. The business sells a broad range of home furnishings, gifts, lighting and home accessories that changes with the seasons so you'll also be a natural visual merchandiser and know how to set up compelling and inspiring displays. Naturally, you'll have considerable room for how your site looks and what you do with promotions.

The Company

This is a decent sized business with a national presence. They’re expanding and opening new sites and constantly looking at ways to grow the product offer and range within established sites. They sell a broad range of fashion, textiles, homeware, furniture, consumer goods and some food and commodities so your current product experience isn’t as relevant as the ability to see opportunities, make decisions and get results through the management of your people. Sound good? Then contact us through any of the options below.
