Assistant Shop Manager - Portswood


Key responsibilities

Our charity shops provide a great source of income to enable us to provide care for local children and their families. We are looking for an Assistant Shop Manager to help run our shop and raise our profile in the area.

Doing all you can to increase income to support the work of the Trust, your responsibilities will include meeting and greeting customers, merchandising, pricing, stock sorting and rotation, banking and staff planning.  All our shops aim to offer a pleasant customer experience with a good old fashioned bargain to boot and we expect our Assistant Shop Managers to reflect this in their approach to work.

Working with your Shop Manager and alongside volunteers, it is essential that you have strong interpersonal skills and a compassionate nature. Although not essential, experience in retail would be ideal and a full driving licence would be useful. 

The role is part-time 3 days a week. 2 of these days will be Monday & Tuesday with some regular Saturday working. You will also cover for the Shop Manager’s absence (holidays, regular day off, sickness absence) so flexibility over working days will be needed.   

Salary: £9,729.72 for 21 hours per week

Benefits include 24 days holiday plus Bank Holidays (pro rata for part time employees), group pension scheme and the opportunity to work in an organisation where every job matters.

Closing date: Monday 12 April

Interviews will take place at the shop on Monday 19 April 2021.
