British Heart Foundation

19 May 2017
Contract Type
Full Time
This is to cover the A1 Corridor, from Peterborough to Lincoln.

At the British Heart Foundation (BHF), we fight for every heartbeat, everyday. In the last year alone, we`ve invested more than £120m in hundreds of life saving research projects across the UK, and helped countless communities beat heart disease with our prevention, survival and support programmes.

We`re looking for someone to join our award-winning retail division, we`re the largest and most successful charity retailer in the country, with over 560 fashion stores, 175 furniture and electrical stores delivering a vital profit of over £29m a year.
Due to the success of both our furniture & electrical format, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced retailer who wants to use all their retail skills in a very fast moving environment and to know that their contribution will make a lifesaving difference. We`re looking for individuals who will either oversee c.7 shops in our furniture & electrical division.

You`ll be responsible for the achievement of required sales and profit targets as well as connecting with local businesses and the wider community to promote services such as CPR training and Health at Work. This will be achieved through building effective shop teams, setting clear objectives and providing guidance. As an influential leader you`ll play a key role by inspiring and motivating your store teams to ensure the strategic aims of the Retail Division and BHF are met.

The role would suit someone with multi-site management experience or with a large store background. You`ll ideally come from a large retailer and have excellent entrepreneurial skills and a successful track record - where else would you get the opportunity to generate your own stock and lead teams of people from all ages and backgrounds! Our Area Manager roles are the most exciting in the retail sector as there is much more autonomy than with most other high street retailers.

In return we`ll provide you with the opportunity to work for an exciting and growing organisation that offers a welcoming and supportive working environment and the opportunity to progress within the business.
