Assistant Store Manager
We believe our teams have performed miracles during the COVID crisis keeping all our stores operating normally & dealing with the huge number of daily challenges it created.
As a business we are stronger than ever & will continue to grow & develop the company.
We have achieved another year of record sales growth even though you might not have ever heard about us.
We operate from 21 small to large format discount stores across the North West and Yorkshire.
Instead of a standard corporate recruitment advert with thought we should start as we mean to go on, we will give you the truth about what it is like to be a Quality Save Store Manager...
Its hard work managing one of our stores - our stores are very fast paced with large volumes of products coming in and out of the store every day.
This is the biggest element new Assistant Store Managers who join us struggle with, the sheer volume of trade and the pace we work at.
You won't spend lots of time in the office- in fact 90% of your time will be on the shop floor providing a great set of standards, great service and great merchandising.
You'll take a lead in training - It is your role to assist the store manager leading and developing your staff using our training guides and career progression tools.
You will have to work stock and people manage at the same time - Every Assistant Store Manager gets their hands dirty no matter how big a team they manage, they work stock with their teams, they clean and tidy and they jump on the tills to reduce queues and manage the building at the same time!
You must be independent - we provide great Assistant Store Manager training, but we don't spoon feed you, we expect you to seek out information and help and then use this to get on with the day job.
You must be commercial - you will know your customers better than anyone else that's why you have the autonomy to pick winning products and promote them in your store either on our promotional space or proactively selling them to our customers at the cash desks.
We are a friendly team - we are still run on a friendly basis and on family values, but we do tell it like it is! We don't sugar coat anything and we always share good and bad issues throughout the team so we can improve our performance.
We want fresh ideas - If you have a good idea and it works we tell everyone it was your idea and adopt it quickly throughout the business.
You are a name (and an important one) not a number!
Career progression is in your hands, show great enthusiasm and understanding of our business and managing people and you will be recognised and put forward for our leadership courses so you can effectively develop your career with us.
We believe in the old saying work smarter not harder! 80% of our stores close by 6pm, and we only open Bank Holidays and Sundays if we think we can make a profit, so not all our stores do this based on our lowest cost operating principle.
So that's the honest truth, it's hard, its challenging, but it's rewarding, its fast paced, it's exciting and it will offer you probably the best work life balance anywhere in retail.
Apply today and fast forward your career.
