Assistant Manager Designate - South East London area
Great choice, outstanding value, unbeatable customer service. That’s Topps Tiles. But there’s more too: for example, did you know just how ambitious and fast-moving we are as a business? Yes, we’ve exciting plans and we’d love you to help us make them happen.
What we’re looking for
First things first: you don’t need to know about tiles to work in a Topps Tile store. And you don’t need to be someone who spends all their spare time DIYing. If retail’s your speciality and you share our passion for exceptional customer service, you’ll make a great Assistant Store Manager.
Working alongside the Store Manager, you’ll inspire, manage and develop a small store team, driving sales and profitability while delivering outstanding customer service. And that outstanding service? It’s something you pride yourself on. As well as making sure that your store works like clockwork and is beautifully presented, you’ll help team members to become product experts and give them the confidence (and know-how) to make the most of sales opportunities. That could be through coaching, training, or simply sharing what you know and your experiences. But, as Assistant Manager, it’s not just people who’ll improve with you around; you’ll constantly be looking for exciting new ways to improve your store and the customer experience.
Who you are
A store customers enjoy shopping in and colleagues love working in - that’s what you do brilliantly. You’ve worked in retail, you’ve managed people and you can show us where you’ve exceeded sales and profit targets. But more than anything, you know the ingredients that make for magical customer experiences – and you’re able to get the best out of team members to make it happen.
As Assistant Manager, you’re can-do, will-do, someone who rolls up their sleeves while leading by example. You do everything you can to help your team members, coaching them, supporting them, sharing advice and knowledge. You’re commercially switched on too, with business acumen to keep ahead of your competition and set your store apart.
What we’ll do for you
In a culture where hard work is recognised and great results are rewarded, you can look forward to uncapped personal commission and company bonus schemes that will give you a share of our success and substantially increase your base wage.
Then there’s a generous staff discount, a Share Save scheme, pension and life assurance, a holiday allowance that increases with length of service and a wide range of other benefits. We’re committed to promoting talent from within too, which means you’ll be well-supported to build a rewarding career with an individual development plan and lots of training on offer. And while you’ll need the flexibility to cover store opening hours including weekends, there’s no evening work to worry about – and no working on Christmas Eve or Boxing Day either.
Who we are

As Britain’s largest specialist tile retailer, selling only the very best quality on-trend products, £1 of every £3 spent in the UK domestic tile market is spent with us. We’ve just opened our 350th store and hit record sales of £215m. And we’re as big on career opportunities as we are on outstanding service and great value. After all, it’s brilliant, friendly, knowledgeable people that makes us special. Right now we’re on a journey of exciting growth, as we build on seven consecutive years of success – there’s never been a better time to join the Topps Tiles family.
