Assistant Shop Manager South Woodham Ferrers

Contract: 2 days per week including weekends
Location: South Woodham Ferrers
Closing Date: Sep 17, 2021

From unearthing hidden gems from donated goods, maximising your income through Gift Aid and crafting eye catching displays, no day will ever be the same.

Our Charity Shops have been moving with the times. Of course, a bargain can still be found and donations welcomed from our neighbours but there is a lot more to them. They are literally the “shop window” for our wonderful charity and are often the first contact people will have with the cause. So it’s vital we create a welcoming and trusting atmosphere in the shops, exactly like our hospices.

Candidates will have 1 year’s experience in a retail environment and in return for your expertise and passion, you will receive a competitive salary package and most of all, by making the most of every day you work, you’ll be helping us Make Every Day Count for those who need us most.
