Save the Children UK is dedicated to improving the lives of children globally by providing health, education, and protection. As an organization at the forefront of supporting children during crises, joining our team means you'll contribute to meaningful work with a lasting impact.

Role Summary:

  • Lead and grow a team within one of our vibrant charity shops.
  • Create an inspiring retail space, driving sales and promoting sustainable fashion.
  • Engage the local community and manage a dedicated team of volunteers.
  • Implement strategies to maximize the shop's potential and deliver exceptional results.

Role Requirements:

  • Strong leadership and people management skills.
  • Experience in retail management or a proven passion for sustainable fashion.
  • Excellent problem-solving abilities and a positive mindset.
  • Capability to work flexibly, including weekends.
  • Interest in contributing to a diverse and inclusive workplace.

This is a full-time role, with on-site shop responsibilities and the possibility to discuss flexible working options. We offer a comprehensive benefits package and the opportunity for professional growth within an inclusive and innovative environment.

Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. We work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children's unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our Retail growth plans as we recruit more Shop Managers to join our team and help us deliver the full potential of our amazing volunteer-led shops! You'll be joining one of our brilliant shop teams as part of our ongoing plans to grow our Retail teams and deliver inspiring retail spaces across the UK. We want to bring the wonders of charity shops back to our high-street and we need driven and passionate people to get us there!

You will be someone with exceptional people skills, a leader who understands the importance of community and enjoys supporting people to exercise similar passions through volunteering. You'll bring proven experience leading and inspiring teams, a strong understanding of what good looks like in a busy and successful community-led shop, ideally with some experience within Retail or a clear passion for sustainable fashion and knowledge of products and trends. A can-do attitude and ability to approach challenges in a positive way, knowing when to reach out for support and guidance where you need it. Previous charity retail experience is not essential. If you have transferable leadership skills or experience managing volunteers in other settings and are looking for a new challenge, we'd love to hear from you!

This role will be based on-site at the shop(s) you apply for, working 5 days / 35 hours per week to include some weekend working. We are happy to discuss flexible working options at interview. We are committed to developing and supporting a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organisation where all employees have a sense of belonging and feel that they can be 'Free to Be Me'. We are not looking for just one type of person - we want to recruit people who can add fresh perspectives, innovative ideas or challenge that disrupts the risk of group think.

We offer a range of benefits including Cycle to Work Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), Eye Care, Flu Jabs, Season Ticket Loan, Pension & Life Assurance, Remote Equipment Allowance, Employee Benefits Platform, Apprenticeship Scheme, Annual Leave, Flexible Working, Learning & Development, Parental Leave, Special Leave.
