Job Description

Sense are currently recruiting for an Assistant Shop Manager to work 22.5 hours per week in our brand new Neath shop.

We are very excited to be expanding our shops in Wales and this presents an excellent opportunity for the right person to make their mark. Each year, over four million people buy an item from us, so our shops play a pivotal role in raising funds to make a difference to the lives of those who find it difficult to communicate and connect with the world.

We are looking for someone to help lead and support a small, enthusiastic team of volunteers, assisting the manager in running the shop and acting as Shop Manager in their absence. This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, customer service.

Key skills and experience:

Motivated, and committed to working in charity retail.
Experience of providing excellent customer service and motivating a team to do the same.
Keen attention to detail
Ability to ensure a safe and inviting environment for those visiting and working in store.

Previous experience of working in a retail environment is desirable.

This position requires the applicant to be willing to work Bank Holidays and weekends as required.
