Store Manager - Cumbria
Store Madford Retail Park, Charlotte St, Carlisle
Being a Store Manager who works on the shop floor means you’re always on the go and visible to your team and your customers. You’ll motivate a small store team to complete a very busy workload so that your store runs to the highest standards of performance. That means working alongside the store team, effectively delegating tasks, working to KPIs, following processes, developing your team and prioritising your customers. You’ll always be ready to adapt to change, learn new things and get your team excited to execute them. You’ll be the face of the store to your local community and despite the many tasks you’re responsible for every day, you’ll never be too busy for your customers.
