Current vacancies

Assistant manager – Sales and Operations

  • Full time
  • £30,000
  • Dysart, Fife
  • Closing 20th August 2021

Furniture Plus is the largest furniture re-use, recycling and repair organisation in Fife and has continued to grow steadily since its inception in December 2001. Our main aim is to combat poverty and social exclusion, especially homelessness, through our core business activity of re-using, recycling and repairing furniture and other household goods that may otherwise have gone to landfill, benefitting local communities, both socially and environmentally, whilst generating core income to sustain the project. We work throughout Fife, operating from 2 locations in Dysart and Dunfermline.

2020 was a challenging year for the charity with substantial losses incurred due to the closure of our stores due to restrictions. During this time we relaunched our website to include an online store.

We now require someone to take our sales forward both online and in store. The role will also assume responsibility for the operations team, overseeing the logistics and warehouse areas.

The role will support the General Manager in ensuring the charity maintains its core aim.

This is therefore a busy and challenging role that will require a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience.

You will work closely with the General Manager to implement some new identified sales initiatives, as well as come up with your own.

In operations you will oversee the warehouse goods in and out, working with the logistics lead to ensure the smooth running of the department.

You will work under the guidance and direction of the General Manager and Board of Directors, for delivering against an agreed set of objectives and targets to ensure a high quality performance in all aspects of the business through the smooth, safe and efficient running of all activities including management and support of all staff, volunteers, placements and the effective utilisation of all facilities.
