You’ll be a visible and central presence on our sales floor, leading by example.

Day to day you’ll ensure effective planning in store deployment, operational and commercial changes, and stock protocols. You’ll support the recruitment, development and management of our store colleagues, and will drive great engagement with your team. Creating a culture of customer excellence, you’ll ensure that effective targets are set and delivered, with customer satisfaction a priority.  Operational compliance will ensure that standards are met and our customers and teams are protected.

  • IT proficient, with experience of working with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and the aptitude to learn in-house systems
