Are you a confident, energetic and vivacious leader who’d like to add a funky new twist to each day in a lively, quirky and out-of-the-ordinary charity retail environment? We’ve got huge ambition at Save the Children to shake up the charity retail landscape and offer a unique experience for our supporters. So, we are looking for a dedicated Shop Manager to join us on a journey.

Our shop in Byres Road is in the heart of the west end of Glasgow. We’ve recently undergone a complete transformation to create our fabulous urban jungle fashion concept. Inspired by the vibrant local area and Botanic Gardens we now have a Green Room, an exciting new goods range, urban & vintage themed donations and even a grass themed fitting room!

We are looking for a Kind and Creative person who loves working with people and has the ability to lead and inspire those around them. Our successful candidate will be someone who is energetic and positive in their approach and attitude, with the ability to instil this in others. They will be hard working and can lead by example, being hands on themselves when necessary but ultimately with the ability to drive productivity through empowering the volunteer team.

This is a great opportunity for someone who can work with a diverse group of volunteers to create a welcoming atmosphere in the shop to attract more volunteers, donors and supporters. As well as being someone who is driven and motivated by raising money for Save the Children, the right candidate will be able to motivate their teams to achieve goals and targets for the shop in a positive way. They will need to be able to work collaboratively with peers and colleagues, actively engaging with others and building strong working relationships. Whilst charity retail experience is not essential, we do require someone with a business mind with the ability to make confident commercial decisions using information available to them.

Save the Children shops are community hubs where people come together to create a home for loved products and a place to share ideas. Where people come together to volunteer, donate and shop.

If you think you have everything we're looking for and more, then we'd love to hear from you.
