About the role

Sense are currently recruiting for an Assistant Shop Manager to work 15 hours per week in Rugby.

We are looking for someone 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. This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, customer service.

You will be an ambassador of Sense; raising vital funds for the charity and promoting who we are and what we do to the members of your local community. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people who find it difficult to communicate and connect with the world, especially those with sensory impairments.

About You

The successful applicant will need to be self-motivated, creative and positively committed to working in charity retail. 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.

This position requires the applicant to be willing to work Bank Holidays and weekends as required. Overtime may also occasionally be available.

About us

For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world.

We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.
