Home Based (with travel throughout your territory)
£52,000 Plus Benefits including Company Car or Car Allowance

If you have experience of divisional retail management of dispersed area teams and significant numbers of outlets, this is a fantastic opportunity to support the success of a charity with a rich history.

Royal Voluntary Service has a significant shop and cafe presence throughout the UK.

We are not only a retailer. We are also an innovative charity that helps to make life better for older people in the UK. For 80 years, we have inspired and enabled people to give the gift of voluntary service to enrich and support their communities.

Now, we are looking for a Head of Retail Operations to support the South region and to join our dedicated team.

In this important role, you will have the chance to help shape our retail offering and directly contribute to our ongoing growth. As Head of Retail Operations, you’ll ensure the success of Royal Voluntary Service’s retail outlets throughout your assigned territory.

Leading the Retail Area Management and store teams, you’ll motivate them to perform to the best of their ability and deliver outstanding customer service in stores.

You’ll develop and maintain a compelling retail offering for each store location and identify ways to maximise income generation and volunteering opportunities.

Additionally, you’ll identify new retail sites and ensure that all financial, people and business-related targets are met in-line with agreed budgets.
To be considered, you will need:

  • At least five years’ experience of managing a retail division and large retail area teams nationally across large territories
  • Experience at management level in a diverse national retail environment
  • Previous experience of managing projects that offer significant improvement or change to a retail organisation
  • Experience of working within a volunteer-led organisation

Results-driven and focused, as the Head of Retail Operations, you’ll be a confident communicator with excellent relationship-building abilities. Superb planning, prioritisation and organisational skills are also key.

A degree level qualification or a qualification in Retail Management or significant retail experience would be beneficial to your application.

Please note, the closing date for applications is the 22nd June 2018.
