Job Description

General Store Manager- Verwood, Dorset

A capable and enthusiastic Retail Store Manager is needed for a Store in Dorset.

The successful candidate must have excellent coaching and leadership skills and be a manger that truly recognises the benefits of driving performance through their people. Customer Service is also of paramount importance, so proof of strong KPIs in this area will be required. All of this needs to be underpinned by an unparalleled ability to take full ownership of a retail site.

As Flagship Store Manager, you will be expected to:

  • Manage P&L
  • Act as a brand ambassador for the store and the wider locality
  • Drive sales through your people by engaging and encouraging
  • Build upon and maintain a loyal customer base in order to grow the business
  • Train and develop your team to provide top-notch customer service!

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Strong P&L management experience
  • Commercial awareness
  • Excellent leadership credentials
  • An ability to drive sales through your people
  • Good training and development capabilities
  • A strong motivator
  • Extremely high standards in store

A clear understanding of a large retail store environment would be beneficial but all retail backgrounds will be considered. You must be a go-getter and someone who can identify external as well as internal opportunities for business development.

This is not an opportunity for an aspiring Deputy/Assistant Manager.

In return for your hard work, you will be rewarded with a basic salary of between £35k and £40k as a base with bonuses available.

If you feel that you are the right candidate and have flagship store management experience on your CV, please apply with an up to date copy quoting reference number: Q100634.

We request that candidates send their CV as a Microsoft Word document where possible.
