Job Description

The Hospice Charity Partnership, formed from Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices is looking for a new Retail Area Manager – North to join its Retail Team.

The proposed area includes shops situated just outside the Birmingham city ring road, going out Eastwards towards the M42 and North upto the M6 toll road.

The Retail Area Manager – North will need real commercial acumen in recruiting, training, inspiring and motivating 10 shops teams to maximise sales and controlling costs. This is a hands on role that is fully involved in all aspects of the retail business from stock generation to new shop openings. You will be exposed to a fast paced, varied and exciting role, with opportunities to get involved in helping set and run new initiatives, in a dynamic and growing retail charity chain.

We are looking for a highly motivated and commercially focused individual, with some experience of area management. Experience of the charity retail sector would be a real bonus for this role. You are self-motivated, positive and feel comfortable working both autonomously and as a great team player. You should easily be able to get results through others and not afraid to lead by example when required.

Most importantly, though, you will have a passion for retail, amazing people skills, and the drive and tenacity to succeed working with both an employed and volunteer workforce.
If this sounds like the role for you then we’d love to receive your application.
