Bring your big ideas to a Sue Ryder large format store
Our growing number of large stores are one of the most important ways in which we raise money to support people living through the challenges of life-changing illness. So when you take over the management of one, you're not just helping us to turn a profit - you're helping to improve the lives of the people we exist to help.
Our large format stores each cover more than 2,000 square feet, so there's a huge range of stock on display - furniture, clothing, bric-a-brac and books - both new and donated. As Shop Manager, you'll take responsibility for making your large format store a big success. You'll maximise sales, control expenditure and manage a team, who'll look to you for leadership and guidance. Under your management, both paid staff and volunteers will get the training they need.
To do this, you'll ideally have some retail experience. However, what's essential is that you're well-organised, with basic IT literacy and the ability to lead a team.
Specifically, you'll need a GCSE-level education, basic admin skills and a gift for helping customers find the perfect purchase - and plenty of commercial sense. With these talents, you'll deliver retail excellence to grow income and make a difference to Sue Ryder Healthcare and the people we support.
There are lots of great reasons to join us at Sue Ryder and here are a few more - http://www.sueryder.org/careers/benefits
At Sue Ryder not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also campaign to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can. Our shops, fundraising and volunteers support us to be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.
