Description:Retail Department Manager£21 - 24,000 + Package BonusWantageThe PersonFirst off, you’ll love the day-to-day of working with people in a retail environment, giving time to your colleagues, offering guidance and support where it's necessary, leaving them to it when it's not. Assisting customers will be second nature and this is a position where being in front of customers a lot is expected. You’ll be happy leading by example but equally happy using performance indicators to get the best from your team. In short, you’ll be a great all-rounder, as happy getting stuck in as you are overseeing the more strategic stuff.The RoleAs the Retail Department Manager, all the day-to-day decisions come through you. From setting and managing rotas to ensuring that standards and visual merchandising start high and stay there, it’ll mostly be for you to keep tabs on. Yes, you report to a Store and Deputy Manager and yes, they are on hand to support you whenever you need it but that doesn’t mean you can’t make decisions or make a difference. This company sells a broad range of what are mostly non-food items - home wear and furnishings, a lovely range of indoor and outdoor furniture, gifting, accessories, some clothing even so it’s a varied and interesting range of products. All of it is aimed at a customer with high standards and an eye on trends. Most of it benefits from being well-merchandised so your skills in both service and standards will need to be high. Obviously, you’ll hold keys, manage performance, coach your team, serve customers even jump on the tills if needed. No two days will be the same but that’s why you got into retail in the first place right?The CompanyThe company is financially stable and confident about future trade. We are in uncertain times and, for many people, that might be enough to hear but they’re also a business that really believes in empowering their people while being on hand with support and training whenever required. The site is a large one, considered one of the most appealing leisure and retail destinations in the area and is a place where there is always something new to see or do. In short, it’s a really good place to work.Initial interviews can be held via video if required with a start date envisaged in MarchRole: Retail Department Manager Job Type: PermanentLocation: OX12, Oxfordshire, Apply for this job now.
