Shop Manager - Plymouth
Managing a Scope charity shop is retailing with a difference. With us, you’ll know your efforts are making this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else.
Our charity shop in Plymouth is located in the heart of the town. It’s a busy shop with a strong emphasis on window displays and visual merchandising.
At Scope, our mission is to drive social change so that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. We want to achieve everyday equality and support disabled people to get the best start in life, live the life they choose and be financially secure.
We do this by running a range of services, raising awareness of the issues that disabled people face and influencing change across society. We provide support, advice and information for more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their family members every year. Our growing retail network is at the centre of what we do, raising vital money to fund our work.
As Shop Manager you will need to be commercially astute and highly organised, and use your skills to drive sales and motivate a team of volunteers in order to maximise income. It’s a varied role where you’ll be managing a team to encourage donations, sort and process stock, maintain high standards of shop presentation and promote our work in the local community. With autonomy to manage your own shop you’ll demonstrate a creative flair to get the best results.
