Assistant Shop Manager x 2

Band 2 (£17,652 - £19,020 pro rata)
-- Part time --

Bury Hospice is looking for two charismatic Assistant Managers to support our shops in Bury Town Centre and Radcliffe, Bury. In this role you will manage the shop team to maximise sales and achieve budgeted profitability whilst promoting the work of Bury Hospice, deputising for the shop manager in their absence.

As an Assistant Manager, you will be keen to use your retail experience to maximise sales using effective visual merchandising techniques. You will be passionate about the work of the Hospice and will use your role to increase awareness of our fundraising activities with customers.

You will be a responsible individual, respectful of guidelines and procedures, such as those related to GDPR and cash handling. You will have an understanding of Gift Aid return and the associated HMRC guidelines, and you will aim to promote this with all shop transactions.

You will take ownership for shop-related administration, such as rotas, timesheets, and absence management, so IT skills are essential, along with your ability to be organised, accurate and timely. Volunteer shop assistants support us in our work so it would be beneficial to the role if you had experience of managing others.

This is a hands-on role, part-time hours with a requirement to work weekends and a flexible approach in order to meet operational demands.
