Westbourne is a popular urban village, with the reputation of being the fashion district of Bournemouth. It boasts a Victorian arcade and several independent boutiques. It is a friendly community and a popular destination for students from the university, local language schools and tourists visiting Bournemouth centre. We’re looking for someone who can engage with that community and create the environment our Westbourne shop needs to thrive, generating much needed income for Save the Children
