About the role
We are looking for a motivated individual to join our team in Denbigh as an Apprentice Shop Manager. This is a part time role, working 30 hours per week.
You will lead and support a small, enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers. This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, customer service. You will be responsible for generating income by maximising sales, controlling costs and encouraging your local community to donate saleable items.
As an ambassador of Sense, you will raise vital funds for the charity and promote 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.
Our successful applicants will need to be self-motivated, creative and positively committed to working in charity retail. You will be able to provide excellent customer service and motivate 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.
This position requires the applicant to be willing to work Bank Holidays and weekends as required.
