BECOME PART OF The Myton Team and help us to make a difference

The Role

We have a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and dynamic retailer to join our Stratford Shop on a permanent basis.

With retail supervisory experience and an ability to get the best out of an amazing team, you’ll be responsible for the smooth running of a profitable charity shop in the heart of your local community. In addition to leading a team that provides a brilliant shopping experience for your customers, you’ll design the perfect layout and environment that helps connect your customers to our cause.

All our shops are supported by a dedicated team of volunteers.  Working alongside them, you will oversee their induction and training as well as their management and development whilst encouraging your shop team to share their ideas, contributing to the continued success of the shop.

We are looking for a professional, creative and customer-oriented leader with strong communication skills and the ability to develop and inspire a team.  Your shop will be Myton’s face onto the local community.  This is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to raising Myton’s profile across the region whilst playing a significant role in raising funds for the services we provide for the people across Coventry and Warwickshire.

This is a full-time role but we are happy to discuss flexible working as an option too.  Whilst primarily based at our Stratford Shop, all our Shop Managers are required to provide cover across our network of 24 shops to ensure we are opening our most profitable shops at all times. Mobility across our area is essential along with flexibility.

As well as joining our experienced and dynamic Retail team we can offer you a wide range of staff benefits, including:

  • A comprehensive induction and orientation programme
  • 28 Days Annual Leave + Bank Holidays
  • Group Personal Pension Scheme
  • NHS Blue Light Card
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Winter Savings Scheme
  • Training and Development Opportunities
  • Flu Jabs
  • Option to Buy Additional Annual leave
  • Death in Service Benefit
  • Eyecare Vouchers
  • Costco

Hours are 37.5 per week, flexible working, 5 out of 7 days.
