    Salary: £8.10 per hour

    Located on the High Street, Harborne is a large format store offering everything you could need, from ladies wear and accessories, menswear and accessories, bric-a-brac, house hold electricals, and donated and branded furniture. Also stocking an excellent range of new goods, such as household items, garden ornaments, doll’s houses and doll’s houses furniture.

    Our growing number of shops are one of the most important ways in which we raise money to support people living through the challenges of life-changing illness. So when you become an Assistant Manager at one, you’re not just helping us to turn a profit – you’re helping to improve the lives of the people we exist to help.

    Our shops are a much-loved part of the high street around the country. As Assistant Shop Manager, you’ll help to create a well-presented shop where customers get great service. It’s a varied role, offering invaluable support to the manager, as you maximise sales, control expenditure and handle stock as part of a dedicated team. Remember that you could often be moving stock – which may involve lifting heavy goods or furniture.

    To do this, you need to have retail experience in a supervisory position, be organised and IT-literate, with natural teamwork skills. You should also have a GCSE-level education, good basic arithmetic and a gift for dealing with people. Experience of working in a target driven environment would be an advantage. With these talents, you’ll deliver retail excellence to grow income and make a difference to Sue Ryder Healthcare and the people we support.
