In a nutshell this is about motivating and mentoring the team to create a memorable brand experience.
You can expect to be busy and to be customer facing, because they’re expecting you to lead by example. You’ll set the standards, and you’ll make sure the team is on your wavelength. That means sharing their work, supporting their development, challenging their decisions and always being there for them with guidance and advice. You’ll also be there for the management team, lending a hand in growing the business and success of the store.
