Our successful candidate will be highly self-motivated, positive and resilient and with previous retail and people management experience. A strong communicator with excellent organisational skills, you will have the ability to build and maintain positive working relationships with a variety of people and have good knowledge of the issues relating to recruiting and retaining volunteers.
