Our client is not just an outdoor store, but of course, that is what everyone says. They are a growing and established a brand and are seeking a Store Manager for their London (Richmond) store.
They have an existing profile with both a number of bricks and mortar stores and a great website.
The company is growing, so this is an excellent opportunity to get on board with this growth.
They are seeking a manager for their store, who is experienced in retail management and ideally has an interest or experience within the outdoor world.
For our client, it all starts when customers enter the store and they want to educate their customers on what outdoor experience can be whilst also providing top-class customer service.
In terms of retail experience, this should have come in a similar background (and not from food retail).
You will require a strong background in retail, having worked in a managerial position in a similar type of retail environment.
This would represent an ideal opportunity for suitable candidates who have been assistant managers wishing to step up.
While it is, of course, ideal if you have a background in outdoor retail, and perhaps, more importantly, an interest in the outdoor industry, training on the job will be provided.
It will not just be management however, as our client does expect their manager to also sell and to be involved in that part of the business.
Sales are key of course to the successful running of any business.
Our client values their staff and knows that good staff are the most important part of their business.
Since this role will involve spending time out on the shop floor, the ideal candidate should bring a passion for retail sales to the post, excelling at customer service while at the same time maximising the opportunities from each sale.
Our client expects the successful candidate to provide both knowledge and advice to their customers and in doing so, guide the customer through the buying process.
On the job training (some of which may be external) is part of the ethos of this great company and they want to ensure that staff have the necessary knowledge and skills to engage the customers, none more so that the manager.
Continual training is part of how they view the importance of their staff wellbeing.
The successful candidate will take full responsibility for the successful day to day running of the store, whilst also retaining support from our clients Head Office team. There is already a great staff in place, our client just needs the right candidate to take over the running of the store.
The Store Manager role is a permanent salaried position working 5 days out of 7 days per week and in return, we offer a competitive salary.
In addition to the excellent salary on offer, there is also the ability to take advantage of your success in the store, by way of profit share/commission on top of the salary.
Given that this is a retail management role and that you will be leading the store and its success, it is equally important that the successful candidate has a flexible attitude when it comes to holidays and working weekends.
This is a rewarding role with a growing company where you can make a real mark and work for a company where you will be rewarded in real terms for your success, with a great support network in place already.
For this Retail Manager role, they are seeking candidates who:
· Have a background in retail management – preferably within the outdoor or fashion sectors
Enjoys customer interaction and have a be driven with a proven track record in exceeding sales targets and exceeding KPI’s
Have previous experience in building a sales team and experience in creating rota’s

The successful applicant will be results-oriented and able to look at the bigger picture.
The applicant should also be very confident in their ability to sell, with excellent customer service and communication skills.
Since the applicant will need to work independently at times, it is important that they are proactive, with the strong problem-solving ability and analytical skills.
This role will include some administrative tasks for the site, for which the applicant will have to have strong organisational skills as well as a proficiency in Microsoft Office, along with sufficient computer skills to handle our client’s EPOS and stock management system.
