When it comes to retail, we are leaders in the sector. With donations from the public, we’re investing in ground-breaking research that will get us closer than ever to a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.

Job Description

Our Sales Assistants work alongside the management team and volunteers to ensure the efficient running of the store. You will support in driving shop performance and will also be responsible for the shop operations in the absence of the Management team. You will be given lots of autonomy and will strive to continually build your knowledge of the BHF.

A career with us will allow your entrepreneurial spirit to flourish.  By joining our dedicated teams, you will be part of helping to create the next big breakthrough, from heart transplants and pacemakers, to stents and clot busting drugs. What’s more, you’ll have a job that helps keep millions of hearts beating and millions of families together.

About you

You will have previous experience in a retail or service environment and you will be comfortable sharing your experience or guiding the activity of volunteer team members. Motivated by the knowledge your hard work will make a life-saving difference, you’ll be proactive, driven and customer focused.

Why join the BHF?

Ultimately everything we do comes back to saving lives. Every single one of us is vulnerable to the heartbreak caused by heart and circulatory diseases – they are the wold’s biggest killers. But the research we fund represents hope. And nothing matters more than finding cures and treatment that give us more time with the people we love. So, if you want a career with a fast-paced retailer that also makes a difference, join the British Heart Foundation as an Assistant Manager today.

We invest heavily in the development of our Assistant Store Managers because they’re the people behind our success in the sector. We value, nurture and reward our talent and are proud to offer a welcoming and supportive working environment. We also offer competitive salaries, 33 days paid holiday including bank holidays (full-time equivalent) and other sector leading benefits.

This position is for 14 hours and includes weekends, on a rota basis
