An opportunity has arisen for experienced and creative Assistant Managers to join the small teams running our Hampton Hill and Shepperton shops.
You will play an integrated role within the retail service at Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, supporting the growth and excellent services we provide to our customers and supporters.
The income from our shops helps to directly fund the work of our two hospices, and our community nursing service. Often entering one of our shops will be the first encounter someone has with our charity. This means that as part of our retail team, you are also an ambassador for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, someone who can talk about the work that we do, and how we help children with life-limiting conditions in the local area.
The Assistant Manager will be jointly responsible for the smooth running of the shop, ensuring a pleasant working environment for the other staff and volunteers.
Assistant Manager core duties:
- Processing donations as soon as possible with the support of the volunteers
- Ensuring all merchandise is displayed appropriately and the window display is creative and eye-catching
- Promoting the gift aid scheme to customers
- Recruiting and training volunteers
- Following cash and banking procedures and submitting financial documentation to the finance team to process.
Having previous experience in retail is essential, as is a can-do attitude. In the absence of the Shop Manager, you will be responsible for the opening and closing of the shop. If you feel you are up to the challenge and are keen to join a close-knit team who work well together, we want to hear from you.
