As an Assistant Store Manager, candidates can expect both a position with considerable challenges and a high degree of commercial autonomy. Tasked across a full range of operational KPI’s , managers are expected to maximise sales through effective staff distribution and high merchandising and service standards as well as ensuring correct stock packages and a commercial store layout. Stores for this company are large, high turnover environments with considerable challenges around stock management and require managers comfortable controlling a fast-paced business and able to manage and motivate a team of junior managers and their subordinates. An Assistant Store Manager is required in Maidstone and the role will have day to day responsibility for the running of this busy Town Centre store but will also provide management cover in other stores for holiday and sickness, to assist the Area Manager with a variety of troubleshooting and management support projects and to be on hand for a variety of day to day store management tasks.
Suitable candidates will need fast moving retail experience gained within a large format business. Your experience can be from Department or Chain Stores, high turnover fashion, clothing, footwear or accessories outlets based in either the high street or out of town or from other service led retail businesses where commerciality and customer service are key. Crucially you will possess a high level of enthusiasm, be keen to learn more and be passionate about retail in general and customer service in particular. The role will particularly appeal to ambitious Supervisors, Department Managers or Assistant Managers looking for a route to higher management. After a period in this role candidates can expect to be fast tracked to their own site and the company is expanding at such a rate that roles will almost certainly become available.
