This is a fantastic opportunity to manage this Regional Airport store, which trades across 2 units. You will be customer driven, organised and have an emphasis not only on harnessing talent but also delivering results and standards through your team of circa 6.
The best store managers take real pride in running outstanding stores, thinking of them as their own. Determined to turn every customer’s visit into a great experience, you’ll lead your team in upholding the highest standards, as you drive sales and manage costs in line with strict KPIs. This approach will help you meet the challenges you’ll face in this fast-paced, often demanding environment. There are security considerations and landlord relationships to nurture, plus regular communications with suppliers too. There’s also the employee lifecycle to think about, from recruitment and training onwards. You’ll take charge of your team’s development, ensuring they’re ready to give great service. If you thrive on responsibility, you’ll love life at WHSmith.
Experienced and entrepreneurial, you’re a skilled retail manager – in your element when inspiring a team. You lead by example, rolling your sleeves up and helping out on the shop floor. With this approach, you’ll win the respect of staff at every level, getting the best from each individual and encouraging them to develop. Commercially sharp, you know that putting customers first is key to meeting targets and budgets, and you’ll take full responsibility for P&L. If you set high standards and are highly driven you’ll go far at WHSmith!
