Deputy Shop Manager
Deputy Shop Manager
£15,819 per annum (36 hours per week)
Location: (Oldham Street, Manchester, M1 1JQ)
We have a network of high street shops that’s bigger than many of Britain’s retailers and a brand people trust. We’re known for being innovative. Look at Oxfam unwrapped or our ethical collection. And we’re competitive. We have to fight for business here so we can fund our fight against poverty and injustice around the world. Because that’s where every penny of our profit goes. And that’s why we’re a retailer with a real difference.
Put simply, it’s about helping to turn everything we sell in our shops into vital funds for years to come. To achieve that, you’ll work with the Manager to support all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the business, from budgeting and merchandising, right through to the training of staff and volunteers. It’s about making sure everything is geared up to generate as much cash as possible from our specially selected collections and the donations we receive.
What we’re looking for
Excellent customer service skills are essential and chances are you’ll already be working in retail. But whatever your background, we’ll expect you to have a commercial outlook and some previous experience of cash handling, together with excellent communication skills and a real ability to engage with people.
A simple, inescapable truth underlines everything we do at Oxfam. There’s enough wealth in this world to go around. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. It’s unjustifiable. And it’s not just their problem. It’s ours too. At Oxfam we believe that with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. Thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we’re looking for yours.
