Could you create a vibrant window of the British Red Cross in the heart of Ellon?
We are looking for a Shop Manager who will be responsible for the management and successful delivery of a customer focused shop team in Ellon.
With retail supervisory experience and an ability to get the best out of an amazing team, you'll have the opportunity to leave your imprint on your store.
With complete autonomy, you'll oversee the day to day running of the shop and decide upon the perfect layout and atmosphere. You'll also be responsible for achieving store profits and targets, and inducting, training and managing new staff and volunteers.
Together, you'll create a shop that will uphold the British Red Cross' image and reputation, and help us raise vital funds to support people in crisis.
Helping people in crisis begins at your local charity shop
Full of gifts, clothes and even the odd vintage gem, our 330 shops across the UK are home to over 6,500 volunteers and 700 paid staff. Our team is bright and bubbly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life.
We want to make sure everyone that visits us has a great experience, and we never forget the contribution our little shop makes to helping those in crisis.
