Great Brand. Great Product. Great Culture. Rapidly expanding retailer requires people focused Deputy/Assistant Managers in and around Swindon, Wiltshire. Up to £20,000 per annum + up to 12.5% yearly bonus + benefits + training + progression opportunity.

This retailer, who has plans to open 100+ new stores in the very near future, wants to make every customer feel as if they're the most special person in store.

As well as having a commercial mind, you'll need to be passionate about helping customers, and have lots of ideas on how to get the best out of your team.
