We're excited to be able to offer you an opportunity to join our team.

We're looking for someone who loves working with people and has the ability to inspire and empower those around them. Our successful candidate will be someone who is friendly and positive in their approach and attitude, with the energy to instil this in others.

They will be able to work collaboratively with peers and colleagues, actively engaging with others and building strong working relationships. Whilst an understanding of charity retail would be preferred, we do require someone with a business mind with the ability to make confident commercial decisions using information available to them.  

This is a great opportunity for someone who can work with a diverse group of volunteers to create a welcoming space in our shop to attract more volunteers, donors and supporters. We are looking for someone who is driven and motivated to raise as much money as possible to help children build a better future.

As a Shop Manager, we can offer you a challenging but enjoyable and hugely rewarding role. We will provide you with the right training, support and coaching you need in order to successfully motivate a team of volunteers to achieve goals and targets.

Save the Children shops are at the heart of the community, providing a welcoming and positive environment for people to come together to volunteer, donate and shop (see attached Ethos).

Our shop is located on the prestigious Regent Street, in the heart of the lovely Royal Leamington Spa town centre. Being in the town for over twenty years it has a good reputation and is loved by young and old alike. We are looking for someone who is a skilled people person who can bring their own energy and passion to the role to attract more people to support what we do. Refitted in 2017 the shop has a lovely up to date look, in line with the area it's in, we are looking for someone who knows how to make it sparkle through brilliant merchandising, expert sorting and wonderful customer service.

We're looking for someone who can engage with the community and create the environment our Leamington Spa shop needs to thrive, generating much needed income for Save the Children.
