Relief Shop Manager

Job Reference: J147-A-19-0534

Richard House Children's Hospice
East London
£18,782 gross per annum

Thinking about your next retail challenge?

Are you a retail professional looking to make a difference? Do you love being part of a team, meeting the public and working in a varied role? If so, read on! We are looking for a Relief Shop Manager to work across our network of charity shops in East London.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a team making a real difference to the lives of the children we support and their families. You’ll get to work across our whole shop network so no two days will be the same and there’s plenty of room to develop in your role and grow your career.

As Relief Shop Manager, you’ll be responsible for generating income for the hospice by maximising sales and Gift Aid opportunities, proactively managing stock, and presenting our shops to a high standard. You’ll be working alongside our Shop Managers and teams of volunteers as well as taking the lead when covering for absence.

We’re looking for someone who is personable and punctual and can deliver first class customer service. You’ll be flexible and open-minded – willing to embrace change and able to adapt to different ways of working. Previous charity retail experience is an advantage, but not vital. Knowledge of health and safety relating to shops is beneficial.

Ideally, we are looking for candidates who can work 5 days a week. However, if you think you’re a great fit and are looking for a 3 or 4 day a week role, please do get in touch and we will consider your application.

Please click apply to send your CV and a supporting statement (no more than 2 sides of A4) outlining why you would suit the role and would love to work with us.
