Our client is looking for ambitious candidates with star management quality to help us make their company THE place people think about when they need wine. In return, they’ll give you the chance to fast-track your entrepreneurial career.
The Store Managerrole:
As Manager you’ll be responsible for the overall running of the Store. That includes keeping it fully staffed at all times, the shelves fully stocked and looking great, and the customer experience 5-star. There’ll be KPIs and sales targets to hit, and profits to turn. So we’ll expect you to lead from the front, using your great coaching skills and management experience to develop your people into a team of retail superstars.
With the store running like a well-oiled machine, your main goal will be to help their customers discover and buy wines they’ll absolutely love, and give them such an enjoyable experience they’ll keep coming back for more. After that, the profit should take care of itself.
With their intensive training and development programme under your belt, if you’re really knocking it out the park, you’ll get the chance to become a Business Partner, effectively running a Store as your own business.
