This is a truly fabulous opportunity for an experienced Manager, ideally from a retail background, to join a fun team, established for 12 years, dealing with a target market of female customers aged between 35 and 60. Experience of managing staff is essential but training will be provided in all other aspects of the role, over an initial 2 month hand over period, as required.

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Capable of working at speed and under pressure
  • A “hands on” and “lead by example” attitude
  • Good problem solver

Although the role is on a 12 month fixed term contract, providing cover for a period of maternity, the business is growing at such a pace that there will be a good chance of a permanent contract in the future.
