Job Description

This household name has been moving at an eyewatering pace to get out ahead of the rest of the high street, even despite the unique challenges retail has faced over the past year.

They’re on the lookout for an Area Manager who can help them take another step up in the East Anglia area. You might be just the person they’re after.

About the role

You’ll play an integral part of the retail team and work to coach, engage, and inspire your store teams. You can expect that to be up to around 20 locations.

People will be your key focus, whether you’re upskilling colleagues to boost capability, compelling others with your vision, identifying and nurturing future leaders, or making sure that the customer’s experience drives your team’s behaviours.

And when you’re not doing that, you’ll spend your time working from a commercial point of view. That’ll include taking responsibility for achieving KPIs in your area, keeping a close eye on the performance of your stores, addressing underperformance with clear action plans, and more.

About you

To do all of that, you’ll need to be a driven, inspiring, and experienced retailer with a background of successfully leading teams and delivering against targets in a fast-paced, demanding multi-site environment.

You’ll have demonstrable experience of successfully implementing business plans, managing compliance, and guiding your people through significant change while supporting them with any concerns using your exquisite interpersonal skills.

Last but not least, you’ll be commercially astute and comfortable managing the KPIs and compliance of your stores.

What's in it for you?

  • Up to £55,000 basic salary
  • Annual performance-based bonuses
  • Company car
  • Matched pension (up to 5%)
  • Health cover (with the option to add immediate family)
  • Life cover (four times salary)
  • and more

About the business

This sheer pace this business has transformed at is a testament not only to fantastic teamwork but inspiring leadership. They’ve achieved so much in the past 18 months but instead of resting on their laurels, they’ve continued to innovate, adapt, and move forwards as a business.

At the same time, they've renewed their focus on people and placed greater emphasis on recognition, development, communication, and benefits. An effort reflected in an upward trend in employee satisfaction over the past 18 months.

All of that has helped them buck the high street trend. This is your rare opportunity to join them as they continue their exciting journey.
