Store Manager - Reading
You're ready for a change from retail. Ready to do a job that's not so seasonally based. Ready to get most of your weekends (and bank holidays, Easter and Boxing Day) back.
But you love the buzz of giving great customer service. You love leading a team. And you've built a wealth of skill and experience as a retail manager that you don't want to lose.
So have you thought about store management in a healthcare-focused retail business?
About the company
Our client is one of the UK's leading organisations in their sector. With a significant number of sites across the UK already, they give you plenty of potential to progress. With a long legacy of bringing excellent ex-retail managers into the business and supporting their transition, you'll find you get all the support you need to make a successful switch.
Our client may not be a traditional retailer, but if you've been a store manager for a highly customer service-led brand - one which places a premium on delighting its customers - you'll be a perfect fit here.
Your role will involve leading and developing your store team to achieve revenue targets and deliver great customer service.
Skills & experience
In addition to being a retailer looking for a new challenge, you'll also need:
- Experience in building a performance culture
- Business acumen - with the ability to make commercial decisions based on data analysis
- To be an excellent communicator and a great coach
- A 'can-do' attitude - advocating and championing change
- To be capable of meeting deadlines under pressure
- To be able to build excellent relationships with your team and customers
- An added bonus is if you've worked a clinical retail-related setting, eg. pharmacy, optics or dental.
The salary, bonus and an incentive scheme that includes gym discounts, childcare vouchers and pay monthly family health care plans are real attractions of this role.
Yet just as important is the coaching and development you will receive. This is a supportive environment, where ex-retail managers receive all the help they need to make the transition into healthcare and grow through the business.
And as a business that likes to recruit its area managers from among its single site manager population, you should find plenty of opportunities to progress.
