Job Details

Do you have experience of successfully leading a team?

Are you passionate and creative?

Are you flexible, adaptable and willing to learn?

We're excited to be able to offer you an opportunity to join our team as the new Shop Manager in Hendon.

We're looking for someone who loves working with people and has the ability to inspire and empower those around them. Our successful candidate will be someone who is friendly and positive in their approach and attitude, with the energy to instil this in others. They will be hardworking and can lead by example, being hands on themselves when necessary but ultimately with the ability to drive productivity through empowering the volunteer team. They will be able to work collaboratively with peers and colleagues, actively engaging with others and building strong working relationships. Whilst an understanding of charity retail would be preferred, we do require someone with a business mind with the ability to make confident commercial decisions using information available to them.

This is a great opportunity for someone who can work with a diverse group of volunteers to create a welcoming space in our shop to attract more volunteers, donors and supporters. We are looking for someone who is driven and motivated to raise as much money as possible to help children build a better future.

As a Shop Manager, we can offer you a challenging but enjoyable and hugely rewarding role. We will provide you with the right training, support and coaching you need in order to successfully motivate a team of volunteers to achieve goals and targets.

Save the Children shops are at the heart of the community, providing a welcoming and positive environment for people to come together to volunteer, donate and shop (see attached Ethos).

Our shop is situated in the busy area of Hendon very close to local tube and overground train facilities. A cosmopolitan area with lots of café's and restaurants in a lively community. There are very few charity competitors in the area which makes Save the Children stand out with its unique style and recently refurbished shop floor. We are looking for a flexible person to manage our vibrant store in Vivian Avenue, a good all-rounder who has the passion to take our store to the next level, encouraging longer opening hours and 7 day trading.

Does this excite you? Have you got what we're looking for?

If so, we'd love to hear from you.

At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. If you share our mission, are passionate about making it happen and strongly believe you can contribute then join us and we'll give you every opportunity to succeed. We look forward to hearing from you.
