If you are a retail professional with logistics or warehouse experience, this is a brilliant opportunity to give back to the Bristol community by supporting the success of a charitable organisation.

There are plenty of innovative programmes to get involved with and drive sales and you'll have key input into the direction of the retail activities.

So, if you are looking to develop your commercial skills and career and take on an important role where no two days are the same, our client wants to hear from you.
