£16,500 - 18,000 + Bonus & Great Package


The Company

This business retails a range of fashionable, trend led products within large format, bright and modern stores. Their values centre around their people and they aim to develop their teams within an inclusive culture believing that all staff members have a valuable contribution to make. This is a growing company, with plans to open many new stores, a vibrant and fast paced environment and generally a fun and exciting place to work.

The Job

As an Assistant Store Manager, candidates can expect both a position with considerable challenges and a high degree of commercial autonomy. Tasked across a full range of operational KPI’s , managers are expected to maximise sales through effective staff distribution and high merchandising and service standards as well as ensuring correct stock packages and a commercial store layout. Stores for this company are large, high turnover environments with considerable challenges around stock management and require Assistant Managers comfortable controlling a fast-paced business and able to manage and motivate a team. An Assistant Store Manager is required for the Welsh flagship store in the city centre.

The Candidate

Suitable candidates will ideally have fashion related retail experience gained within a large format business. Your experience can be from Department or Chain Stores, high turnover fashion, clothing, footwear or accessories outlets based in either the high street or out of town or from other service led retail businesses where commerciality and customer service are key. Crucially you will possess a high level of enthusiasm, be keen to learn more and be passionate about retail in general and customer service in particular. The role will particularly appeal to ambitious Supervisors or Department Managers looking for a route to higher management. After a period in this role candidates can expect future Store Management opportunities to become available as the company is expanding at such a rate.
