The scale of each of this leading retailer's stores means that the role and responsibilities of its department managers equate to those of a store manager at a smaller outlet. And that is exactly what this outstanding retailer is seeking to recruit: experienced, sales-focused retail managers to drive sales and profitability across multiple ranges and departments in a large £multimillion store.

Retail professionals likely to thrive in these roles will relish the challenge of managing a large team and complex operation with multiple brands.

Their principal responsibilities will include:

* Maximising sales opportunities across the business through the management and motivation of the team and close analysis of sales reports;

* Addressing any performance or operational issues impeding profit optimisation;

* Working with the store management team to ensure store standards and visual merchandising support the sales effort;

* Building, maintaining and developing a well-trained, engaged sales team motivated to excel. This may seem like a great deal to ask of a department manager but these aren't typical department manager roles. In fact these autonomous roles offer you an excellent opportunity to prove your readiness for large unit, £multimillion management.

The ideal candidate profile for these roles would include:

* A track record of management success in quality retail environment;

* Natural sales skills and commercial acumen;

* Tenacity, self-motivation and well-developed communication skills;

* Natural leadership abilities.

If you're keen to make an impact managing sales and profitability for multiple brands within a single store operation, this retailer can offer you a progressive career path plus an excellent remuneration package.
