Job Description

Are you an inspirational, experienced Retail Operations Manager who would like to make a real difference to animal welfare?  We are offering a fantastic opportunity to an innovative, motivational manager with commercial flair and a proven track record.

Our Vison:

RSPCA Bury, Oldham and District Branch rehabilitates and rehomes cats and dogs at our Oldham animal centre. In addition, we offer advice to the public plus microchipping, neutering and subsidised treatments to local animals.

As well as maintaining our existing operations, the branch has ambitious plans to grow and develop, including the provision of additional services from our animal centre and the development of more community outreach and education projects.

We are a separately registered charity responsible for raising our own income, a challenge made harder by the common misconception that branches are funded by the National Society.

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for an exceptional person to manage and develop our retail operation of 12 charity shops which generate an annual turnover of c£850,000. This income is essential to fund our work at our animal centre and we plan to increase it to over £1 million by next year.  You will be supported in running the shop network by around 30 paid employees and 145 volunteers.

You’ll be a committed, creative and organised person, a skilled communicator able to work on your own initiative and prioritise effectively. You will have a flair for commerce and be able to inspire your teams of paid staff and volunteers to provide exceptional customer service and increase and maximise retail profits. This is a demanding and hugely rewarding role and if you are looking for a challenge and a chance to genuinely help support animals in need this could be the role for you.
