Wickes is an exciting, fast paced, changing environment. The range of services we offer our customers makes us a great place to work and grow. So if you’re passionate about retail and have held a position of Supervisor, Assistant or Deputy Manager then please read on!
We’re looking for people that truly love others and want to be the best they can be on a day to day basis, be that working with a customer to understand what they need or coaching a colleague to help them grow in their role. We want you to build and develop authentic working relationships with people you meet, in whatever context, make considered decisions that will often challenge thinking, be brave and always be at your best, whatever the situation. We need people who, like us, take real pride in what they do.
The role of Operations Manager is new for Wickes – this means the potential is high, as is the opportunity for growth. We expect that you’ll already show great leadership ability, be great at managing your workload, you’ll have the safety of others (including yourself!) at the forefront of your mind, you’ll be customer centric, making sure each and every customer has a great shopping experience with us and that you’ll come to work with a winning mindset.
Here’s a brief snapshot of what you’ll be doing…..

- Being part of a team that thinks and practises safety at all times
- Supporting the Store Manager and your colleagues, where necessary
We will, of course, provide a full role profile prior to interview
What are we looking for:
- We do want people who have worked in a retail environment before – we’re not worried about what product!
- A can do spirit is essential in retail so this is a non negotiable for us!
- We want candidates who understand the financial side of business – previous KPI exposure and working to targets is a must
- We also want people who know how to recruit great team members – you spot potential and are able to work with individuals to bring that out
