Managing a Scope charity shop is retailing with a difference. With us, you’ll know your efforts are making this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else.
Are you commercially aware with lots of retail experience and a passion for fashion? Do you strive to provide the best customer service?
You'll have a hands-on approach and the ability to recruit and motivate a team of volunteers. It's varied work - you'll encourage donations, sort and present stock and promote our work in the local community.
You'll have proven management and organisational skills and be confident enough to work on your initiative. You'll be given autonomy to manage the shop.
You'll be responsible for the performance of the shop, maximising sales and driving targets and profits.
