We are seeking a Shop Manager who is looking to make their mark in a high profile new store in Southwold. Combining commercial acumen with creativity to ensure that the store gets off to a flying start, you will lead a team of employees and volunteers to deliver the highest standards of customer service and presentation in order to maximise income for cat welfare. 

This is an exciting opportunity to manage a brand new store, market and promote the store within the community and build an exceptional team that are committed to raising funds to support cats and kittens in our care. 

We’re looking for an individual who is highly self-motivated, positive and resilient and who has previous retail and people management experience.

Experience of working to targets and KPIs within a retail environment is essential. 

To reward you, we have a pay scheme which provides the opportunity to progress within your pay band, subject to satisfactory performance. We also offer a range of benefits which include a generous holiday entitlement, a competitive pension offering, a private medical scheme, and a death in service scheme.
