Get your career moving at a Sue Ryder furniture shop
Are you ready to take on the challenge? Our Shop Managers are vital to our success and by using your retail experience to drive business, push sales and achieve targets you’ll be improving the lives of people with a life-changing condition. Use your entrepreneurial flair to make a difference and we will reward you with career development within our expanding retail business.
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 take over the management of 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 furniture shops sell an interesting range of furniture items, bric-a-brac and some clothes. As Shop Manager, you’ll create the kind of welcoming and well-laid out retail environment that our customers love. You’ll maximise sales, control expenditure and manage a team, who’ll look to you for leadership and guidance. Under your management, both paid staff and volunteers will get the training they need.
To do this, you’ll ideally have some retail experience – plus the ability to source stock (often at house clearances), arrange van collections and organise deliveries. Remember that you could often be moving stock – which may involve lifting heavy goods or furniture. However, what’s essential is that you’re well-organised, with basic IT literacy and the ability to lead a team.
Specifically, you’ll need a GCSE-level education, basic admin skills and a gift for helping customers find the perfect purchase. With these talents, you’ll deliver retail excellence to grow income and make a difference to Sue Ryder Healthcare and the people we support.
Sue Ryder provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. We do whatever we can to be a safety net for our patients and their loved ones at the most difficult time of their lives. We see the person, not the condition.
