We have an opening...

We have a fantastic opportunity for an Assistant Shop Manager to join us.

In this role, you will be responsible for supporting the shop manager with the successful delivery of a customer focused shop team that is the 'window of the Red Cross' on the high street.

Deputising for the Shop Manager on occasion, you will ensure the smooth running of the shop during these times, whilst also dealing with any financial transactions accurately and deliver a high standard of shop floor management.

Working with and supporting an inspiring team of volunteers, you will play an integral role in maximising profitability and helping generate much needed income to support people living in crisis both at home and overseas.

Together, you'll create a shop that will uphold the British Red Cross' image and reputation, and help us raise vital funds to support people in crisis.


Helping people in crisis begins at your local charity shop

Full of gifts, clothes and even the odd vintage gem, our 330 shops across the UK are home to over 6,500 volunteers and 700 paid staff. Our team is bright and bubbly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life.

We want to make sure everyone that visits us has a great experience, and we never forget the contribution our little makes to helping those in crisis.

"I'm not delivering to a profit target to enhance someone's personal wealth - I'm making a real - visible - contribution to supporting the work of my chosen Charity"
- Joanne Thurman, Area Retail Manager
