Do you have retail experience with excellent customer service skills? Are you comfortable working in a busy fast paced environment? If so, come and support our Shop Manager to run our Bedford Superstore and contribute to the work we do across Sue Ryder.
As our new Shop Assistant you will help us to create a well-presented shop where customers get great service. You will sort and size stock, and be on hand to help customers with their purchases. Remember that you could often be moving stock – which may involve lifting heavy goods or furniture.
Other responsibilities include:
• To help maximise donated income through proactive stock generation, optimum pricing, processing stock to agreed levels and stock planning
• To help maximise New Goods income by assisting with the managing of stock levels and effective merchandising. Assist with quarterly stock takes
• Embrace changes and development of new IT and operational procedures across the charity
To do this, you need to be organised and IT-literate. Retail experience would be an advantage. You should also have good basic arithmetic and a gift for dealing with people. With these talents, you’ll deliver retail excellence to grow income and make a difference to Sue Ryder Healthcare and the people we support
