Lots of retailers are in the midst of transformation right now. But few are undergoing a transformation quite like our client's. Store refits. Relocations. New locations. They're all part of a strategy to ensure this famous, design-led retailer remains a market leader not just in the UK, but across Europe.

If the multi-year transformation strategy is to be successful, it will need a Head of Store Development with a strong, varied and commercially-focused skillset to deliver it.

Programme management, communication, collaboration, drive, negotiation, commercial vision, motivation and influence - if you have them all, this role promises an enormously rewarding career and the opportunity to make a major difference to the footprint of one of Europe's major brands.

As Head of Store Development, your day-to-day responsibilities will include the following:
  • Leading and coordinating all store development activity to deliver the transformation strategy
  • Ensuring value, efficiency, compliance and budgetary control through a range of operational KPIs
  • Leading, managing and partnering with a range of key stakeholders to deliver the transformation
  • Developing your team and raising their profile within the organisation
  • Keeping the Board updated with programme progress

About you

You'll be:
  • A chartered surveyor (ideally) and qualified to degree level or above
  • Adept at manging multiple projects simultaneously and keeping them all in sharp focus and on track
  • A natural collaborator, able to work positively and constructively with others to drive project success
  • Someone who is seen as a leader, able to motivate, inspire and develop those around them

You'll have:
  • Significant experience in estate improvement
  • Project management experience of multi-site developments in retail or similar sectors.
  • Real commercial acumen, with the vision, quick wits and analytical skills to swiftly assess business opportunities and understand the potential benefits and risks
  • Strong negotiation skills, able to reach agreements that foster long lasting partnerships
  • Contract management experience (including running tendering exercises)

What's in it for you?
  • Competitive salary
  • Bonus
  • Car or car allowance
  • Private health insurance
  • Life assurance
  • Pension
  • Impressive career development opportunities
  • A positive team environment
