When a child is diagnosed with cancer life becomes full of fear, for them and their family. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, overwhelming money worries, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we help families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. And you could be a part of the team making it happen.
This is an exciting role working with a Deputy Shop Manager and a volunteer team.
The position is offered for 28 hours per week to include Saturdays on a rota basis alongside the requirement to work flexibly with local shops when necessary. Working knowledge of Health & Safety and basic IT skills are essential.
This role falls under the site- or office-based category, meaning the successful candidate will be based at the Newton Abbot shop and this will be the contractual location.
We are looking for an experienced retail manager who will show a passion and flair for retail and the ability to organise and get the most out of a volunteer team.
You will work with the Deputy Shop Manager to create plans to maximise income for the charity and will be able to demonstrate how you have worked in the community to promote a cause or an organisation. Organisational and delegation skills are vital to ensure consistency of operation when you are away from the shop.
