Job Description

Main Purpose of Role
The Area Retail Manager will have the passion, drive and ability to lead and support our Charity Shop Managers, to develop the BPR shops, building on their existing success. The retail team makes an essential contribution to the funding of the Rescue Centre and improving the lives of animals in need.

The Area Retail Manager will oversee the operation of four shops in Duns, Galashiels, Hawick and Kelso, and will have responsibility for maximising sales. You will lead on retail performance, reporting regularly to the Trustees. The focus is on developing and delivering a retail strategy by taking the best of what we do and building on this, working with the Shop Managers and their teams.

Your part in the team
• You will manage and support four Shop Managers. Close collaborative working between the Area Retail Manager, Business Administration Manager, and the shop-based teams of employees and volunteers will ensure strong management across the team.
• The Area Retail Manager reports to the Trustees directly.
• Our overall contribution to animal welfare is stronger for being a team, so we expect that you work openly, supportively, and creatively with the Animal Rescue Centre Manager.

You will thrive on setting and achieving goals and making it possible for others to do the same. Honest, straightforward yet diplomatic. Organised, flexible with a positive attitude. Able to work on own initiative and to make decisions as required, knowing when to inform or consult others. And of course, you will have a genuine concern for animal welfare and enthusiasm for the work of the charity.
