Retail Store Manager
Retail Store Manager
£27 - 30,000 + Store & Company Bonus & Benefits
Established for over 100 years but still growing this High Street fashion based retailer has managed to combine all the benefits of being a financially stable business offering both security and structure with plenty of future development and career opportunities. It’s managed to do both by being true to its core values of offering great product in a customer friendly environment, by living its mission statement and, most importantly, by empowering and inspiring its store teams. As part of continued growth throughout London they are now looking for a small number of Retail Store Managers to take on new and existing sites and to play a key part in the businesses short and medium-term growth.
As a Store Manager you will:
- Own the commercial performance of your store.
- Drive sales, manage performance and lead your team to increase commercial opportunity.
- Maximise product availability, ensure strong visual presentation and offer great in-store customer service.
- Recruit, develop and train the in-store team.
- Manage payroll, rotas and all in-store costs.
Hopefully this will all be second nature and Store Managers will thrive in an environment that gives them room to do their job and rewards them for their efforts. The business has strong brand values and wants to empower teams through those values so, although a very busy and high turnover environment, Store Managers must not lose sight of the need for good standards, maximum availability and great service. It’s a role to really challenge Store Managers across all aspects of the job but the business takes the training and development of its people very seriously and is prepared to offer an industry leading training program to ensure that, once in post, people are comfortable with their role and able to excel. Although already a position to warrant serious consideration the company is also opening many new sites, has an enviable record of nurturing and developing internal talent and is always on the look-out for the next rising star.
The position will appeal to any established retail Store Manager who wants security, reliability and structure. We’re looking for people with:
- Store or Deputy Store Management experience gained within a fast paced but customer orientated environment.
- Store Managers with a nurturing, people focussed management style.
- Ambitious people with the desire to perform to the best of their ability and progress their careers.
- Store Managers with a belief in training, of both themselves and their teams.
In a challenging retail environment, a business with a clear direction that is solid financially allows managers to focus on doing their job rather than worrying about how long it will last. Great training gives people certainty around how to operate, how to manage and how to be the best they can be. A challenging and fast-moving role keeps managers engaged, challenged and constantly looking for ways to be better. The role is best suited to aspirational individuals that want to be both tested and supported, challenged but managed within a clear framework and rewarded for their efforts both through excellent store based incentives and clear development programs. Background wise, applicants can come from any high street retail business as long as it’s busy but still customer focussed. It really is less important what you do now, and more important that you are committed, hard-working and want more control over your career.
