We're looking for a commercially minded Area Manager to join our retail team in Kent to maximise area sales and profits in this region.

What will I be doing?

We need an excellent retailer to...

  • Achieve agreed area sales budgets and maximise our retail profit through effective cost control
  • Recruit, develop and retain high calibre staff in all positions within the area to drive performance
  • Analyse financial data to make informed commercial decisions
  • Maintain a standard of excellent customer service and supporter care
  • Generate quality donated goods through area driven initiatives
  • Engage with our wider communities strategy to ensure our shops are at the heart of the community

Why this role?

Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person, and our 1,700 retail staff and 14,000 volunteers work relentlessly every day towards this goal. Trading and Operations is looking to significantly increase its monetary contribution to the Charity by 2020, therefore we need someone that will add strategic value and quickly make an impact in each new area that they work whilst having the confidence to take risks. You'll have the autonomy to run your portfolio of shops like your own business, and no two days will be the same.

What are you looking for?

To join us in this fast-paced role you will need to have...

  • Outstanding track record in achieving sales & profit targets within retail management
  • Excellent understanding of high street retail and what sells
  • Experience of distance management of a diverse team of people
  • Flexible and proactive attitude with the ability to adapt and implement change
  • Strong short/long term strategic planning skills with the ability to time manage and prioritise successfully

What's in it for me?

  • 25 days annual leave a year plus public holidays
  • A generous annual area bonus scheme
  • Company car
  • A tailored Area Manager induction and training programme
  • A range of generous rewards and benefits via our Rewards platform

If you can do all this and more, you'll enjoy a great career as we work hard together to beat cancer sooner.
