Job Description

This is a fantastic time for Cats Protection, with particular growth in our Retail team, and we are currently looking for two Area Retail Managers – one in the North East of England and one in the North West of England.

Our Area Retail Managers support branches, adoption centres and non-branch aligned shops in their retail operations, aiming to help raise as much money as possible for our cat work.

Working alongside our incredible volunteers and retail staff, you will support, advise, motivate and manage our retail teams to drive income. With scope for creativity and innovation, this role provides an excellent opportunity to really make your mark in a retail operation that has embarked on an exciting expansion programme.

We’re looking for motivated and dynamic individuals who have experience of working in the charity retail sector. You will have first class people management skills, strong business acumen and significant experience of working with volunteers. With excellent communication skills and a flexible approach, you should have the ability to build and maintain positive working relationships and have experience of setting and managing income and expenditure targets.

Those who have experience of opening new shops and managing relocations are highly desirable (although this isn’t essential), as are those who have multi-site retail experience.

These are homebased roles and we expect that you will live within easy reach of a main road, rail and air links, It is essential that you hold a full, valid driving licence and are willing to undertake travel within your area of responsibility, which is likely to include overnight stays and some unsocial hours.
