This well known brand will be opening 2 new stores a week between now and December 2016 and continues to invest heavily in its people.

Each day brings something new as a store manager within this retailer. You never know who's going to walk into the store or what's going to happen. But your ability to build a rapport with customers and inspire your team will make sure things always run like clockwork.

As a store manager, you'll lead a team of up to 30 team members and three managers. With support from head office when you need it, you'll be fully responsible for every aspect of the store. You'll manage sales, develop staff, handle all HR issues, work on new initiatives, trial new products and most importantly, ensure that customer service levels are second to none.

You'll be a hands on, shop floor leader, someone who naturally role models great behaviour. You'll work alongside your team receiving deliveries, stocking the shelves and providing customers with the kind of service that makes them want to come back time and time again. All while coaching and supporting your staff and identifying those with the potential to move onwards and upwards.

What you'll need:
If you enjoy being on the shop floor, have natural charisma and a real understanding of the commercial side of things, this is the role for you.
We're looking for a salesperson, a motivator, a logistics expert and a shrewd business head. Someone with previous management experience as a store manager, business manager, unit manager, deputy manager, assistant manager, department manager or duty manager - who understands profits, can stick to a budget and knows how to inspire others.
You'll also need to be a clear communicator and a strong leader, with a firm grasp of health and safety issues plus the ability to drive sales to exceed targets. A passion for providing customers with the very best experience will be at the heart of everything you do.

What you'll get in return:
You'll get 23 days per year annual leave which rises to 25 days with service and are likely to receive a bonus worth up to 25% of your salary. There's also private healthcare and a pension scheme, share save scheme and 15% discount on most in-store goods. You'll also enjoy half-price meals and free hot drinks while on duty.

And that's not all. If you're ambitious, you will be given excellent training and support to help you move up the career ladder.

Immediate interviews available. If this is you or you want to know more apply today at or call Chris on 01628 600776.
