“I am extremely proud to be working for Scope, this has to be the best role in my working adult journey, I love my job and I love working with my team” - Newbury Shop Manager

“What a fantastic company to work for, Scope keep us connected” – Leek Shop Manager
Would you like to work at the heart of your local community? Are you able to inspire a team of brilliant volunteers? Do you have retail or customer service experience and are looking for the next step in your career?
If you answered yes to these then we have the perfect opportunity for you.
As Assistant Shop Manager, you’ll work alongside the Shop Manager at Scope's Weybridge shop, and use your creativity and flair to flourish in our retail environment. Our retail roles are full of variety, and every day is different! One day you might be generating and processing stock and designing an eye-catching window display. The next day you might be recruiting and training our wonderful volunteers. Every day there will be a different challenge that you’ll find extremely rewarding. You may also deputise and be responsible for running the shop when the shop manager is absent. A great attitude and willingness to learn are just as important as relevant experience.
You’ll be a dedicated team player with a strong work ethic and committed to providing excellent customer service. You do not need specific retail experience. But we do ask that you are business minded and have worked in a fast paced, service environment where you put the customer’s needs first. You’ll also need to showcase a great attention to detail, solid IT skills and have a creative eye for displays. You will also demonstrate an appreciation of Scope’s values and ambition of achieving Everyday Equality for disabled people.
