Cover Manager for our Charity Shops

Contract: Part Time – 3 days per week (22.5 hours including weekends)
Location: Thurrock area
Closing Date: Nov 19, 2019

We are looking for a Cover Manager for our Charity Shops in Grays, Corringham and Stanford le Hope.

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.

Ideal candidates will have Retail Management experience, a full driving license and access to a car for work purposes and be looking for an opportunity to make a real difference.

By joining our Trading Department, you’ll be ‘Making every day count’ for the patients, children and families we care for.
