Are you an experienced manager who loves retail and is looking for a new challenge? Are you a hands-on leader with a charismatic approach who’s able to enthuse staff and customers alike? Are you reliable, trustworthy, with a good eye for detail? If so, this is the role for you.
Cowling & Wilcox are a specialist fine and graphic art shop which was established in 1960, with three shops throughout London, a shop in Canterbury and Head Office in Folkestone in Kent.
We are looking to recruit an ambitious, creative and proactive individual to manage our branch in Canterbury.
As a Store Manager / Retail Shop Manager you’ll be responsible for managing a team of sales consultants, ensuring the smooth running of the shop and maintaining high levels of customer service; a good understanding of sales and merchandising is essential to achieve this.
We at Cowling & Wilcox strive for excellence and we expect nothing less from our staff than to deliver this consistently.
This role demands a competent and reliable manager with relevant management training, who will thrive on motivating the team to ensure they offer an outstanding service and drive sales.
To be considered for this position, you must have at least 2 years proven retail management experience. Candidates must have previously managed a shop on their own rather than have managed a department or floor within a bigger store as a part of a management team.
Knowledge of artists’ materials would be beneficial to your application but is not essential as training will be provided for the right person.
