Would you like to work at the heart of your local community? Are you able to inspire a team of brilliant volunteers? Do you have retail experience and are looking for the next step in your career?
If you answered yes to these then we have the perfect opportunity for you.
As Shop Manager, you’ll have autonomy to run your shop using your creativity and flair to flourish in our retail environment. Our retail roles are full of variety, and every day is different! One day you might be generating and processing stock and designing an eye-catching window display. The next day you might be recruiting and training our wonderful volunteers. Every day there will be a different challenge that you’ll find extremely rewarding. You will have relevant experience in retail but a great attitude and willingness to learn is just as important.
As Shop Manager you’ll be passionate about retail and have a love of fashion with experience of running a shop, or you’ll be looking for a management role as the next step in your career. To be successful, you’ll need a commercial, can-do attitude and always put the customer’s needs first. You’ll be a dedicated team player with a strong work ethic, a great attention to detail, solid IT skills and a creative eye for displays. We ask you demonstrate an appreciation of Scope’s values and ambition of achieving Everyday Equality for disabled people.
