About the role
Sense are currently recruiting for an Assistant Shop Manager, working 22.5 hours per week in our brand new Denbigh store.
We are very excited to be expanding the retail aspect of our Charity into Wales, and these roles will provide an opportunity to really champion the various ways Sense support people, and the difference the charity makes to people each day. Each year, over four million people buy items from us, so our shops play a pivotal role in raising funds to make a difference to those who find it difficult to communicate and connect with the world.
We are looking for a capable, motivated person to help lead and support a small, enthusiastic team of volunteers, assisting the manager in running the shop and acting as Shop Manager in their absence.
You could be an existing Assistant Manager looking for a new opportunity, or someone with excellent customer service skills, looking for their next step up.
This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, providing fantastic customer service.
The successful applicant will need to be self-motivated, and positively committed to working within the charity sector. You’ll have experience of providing excellent customer service and motivating a team to do the same.
You’ll have an eye for detail and will ensure a safe, clean and inviting environment for customers, staff and volunteers.
Previous experience of working in a retail environment is desirable, but not essential.
This position requires the applicant to be willing to work Bank Holidays and weekends as required.
