Job Description

An exciting opportunity to join Longfield Community Hospices’ team, in this thriving multi-site charity retail business. We are seeking a creative and experienced Retail Area Manager who will support in the shaping of our retail strategy, improving operations and driving growth.

Reporting into the Head of Retail you will work collaboratively to deliver the Retail strategy to increase profitability and financial contribution to the Hospice. Working closely with the other Retail Area Managers, the Retail Area Manager is responsible for the day-day operational management of the warehouse, logistics, e-Commerce team and a small number of retail shops and their staff within the retail portfolio.

You will need to demonstrate an outstanding track record in achieving sales and profit targets within retail management, as well as significant retail management across multiple sites within a charity or the commercial sector.

As the skill set and experience for this role is quite vast, we would welcome candidates who have significant experience in warehouse management or online selling (ideally within a charity environment) or retail multi-site management experience.

Longfield is a community hospice charity, in a beautiful setting near Stroud.  We believe that everyone touched by a life-limiting illness in Gloucestershire should benefit from free hospice care. We support people to live well after diagnosis through a range of day services for them and their loved ones and, when the time comes, we provide hospice at home care, enabling them to have the choice of dying in the comfort of their own home. We also provide support to their families and carers, including bereavement counselling.

We offer a competitive benefits package which includes flexible working, 33 days holiday, increasing to 38 days with long service, Life Assurance, a pension scheme or the option to continue the NHS Superannuation pension scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Cycle to Work, a Purchase of Annual Leave scheme and access to discounts through the Blue Light scheme.

Longfield Hospice is a truly wonderful place to work, and we are proud of our modern, purpose-built facilities, fantastic grounds, friendly culture and amazing staff and volunteers.  Longfield is a well-regarded charity, which makes a genuine difference to lives and deaths across the county.
