Retail Manager – Sydenham


Department: Trading


Salary: £20,961 per annum


Hours: 36 hours per week


Location: Sydenham (Furniture and Electrical store)


Charity shops are more popular than ever and the retail shops for St Christopher’s contributed over £2milion last year to support the Hospice. We now trade in 26 shops within the Bromley and South East London area and on-line too.


All profits from our shops go directly to St Christopher’s Hospice to support end of life care and our vision of a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to the care and support they need, when and wherever they need it.


Our stores are stocked with donations and you will have a keen eye for identifying quality items and pricing appropriately. Keeping up to date with current/seasonal trends, you will draw on your knowledge of what’s ‘hot’, merchandising stock to maximise sales. Knowing what draws in the crowds, you can create eye catching window displays to rival the big brand high street stores!


This is an incredibly rewarding role which allows you to enjoy your retail career while contributing to the aims and achievements of St Christopher’s. Your shop may be the first contact customers have with St Christopher’s. You and your team are ambassadors for our charity, providing a vital link with the community.


You will be experienced in recruiting, training and managing staff and be fully versed in all aspects of retail management including stock taking, banking and maintaining quality customer service.


You must have the flexibility to work over 7 days and occasionally cover different locations as needed.


At St Christopher’s you will benefit from access to excellent training and development opportunities, a number of staff health and wellbeing schemes, 25 days holiday rising to 27 days plus bank holiday allowance, a competitive contributory pension and Life Assurance scheme with generous beneficiary plan.
