  • managing and developing the shop’s Assistant Manager, who you will work closely alongside
  • managing and recruiting volunteers who will help enable the successful running of the shop
  • Good high street retail experience is essential for the role, as is the ability to manage your own budget and show initiative in all aspects of running the shop. At an exciting time to join the organisation, we are looking for a capable and ambitious person to obtain maximum contribution from the shops to support and grow the work of the hospice.
