Job Description:

Would you like to work for one of the UK’s fastest growing companies and Which Retailer of the Year 2016 & 2017?

We’re on the lookout for great store managers just like you to join our ever-expanding team. As Designate Retail Manager you’ll provide short term cover to a number of busy stores in your area, which will give you a great grounding in our business. We’re seeing massive growth, with 40 new stores coming this year so you could soon find yourself managing your own store.

What you’ll be doing

As an integral part of our Retail Operation you’ll be working in a trade counter environment; managing all aspects of the store operation, from front end trade counter sales to warehousing, stock management and compliance. Acting as an inspirational leader, you’ll inspire customer loyalty and coach your team to be the best that they can be. This isn’t your average retail role, we serve customers, pick items from the warehouse and stock shelves. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. But where we really differ is our service, we go above and beyond to make our customers happy. And you’ll be at the forefront of this, building longstanding relationships and taking pride in doing a good job.

• Coaching and encouraging your team to provide a high level of customer service (this will involve being visible and leading from the front)

• Managing and recruiting great team members – spotting talent and bringing out the best in your team

• Working with your team (6-10 full and part time employees), to achieve the targets, motivate colleagues and serve customers

• Managing your store resource, right people in the right place at the right time

• Harnessing a ‘One Team’ environment that encourages growth and engagement

• Being part of and leading a team where safety and compliance are always top of the agenda

What you’ll bring

As an experienced team manager, you’ll lead from the front, inspire and motivate your team to set an example of great customer service and store standards; ensuring that the sales counter runs smoothly. Your can-do attitude and passion for retail shine through and are emulated by your team. Ideally, you’ll have experience of working in a fast paced, high volume environment, although we welcome applications from varied retail backgrounds.

What we’ll give to you

At Toolstation we’re proud to offer great career development opportunities to our colleagues, with a strong culture of recognising and supporting talent and promoting colleagues from within. You’ll be challenged in your role and our values are high; you’ll be supported with tailored induction programmes, and ongoing management training courses to ensure your success with us.

As part of the Travis Perkins group plc, Toolstation are able to offer great benefits to our employees; including colleague pension, provision of uniform, childcare vouchers, competitive rates of pay, discount on products across the Travis Perkins Group, company share save schemes and more!
