About the role

We are currently recruiting for a Shop Manager to work 37.5 hours per week in our Nantwich shop on a permanent basis.

We are looking for a capable, reliable person to lead and support a small, enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers. This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, customer service. The Shop Manager is also responsible for the appearance of the shop and completing administration tasks.

You will be an ambassador of Sense; raising vital funds for the charity and promoting who we are and what we do to the members of your local community. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people who find it difficult to communicate and connect with the world, especially those with sensory impairments.

You will be responsible for generating income by maximising sales, controlling costs and encouraging your local community to donate saleable items.  

About You

The successful applicant will need to be self-motivated, creative and positively committed to working in charity retail. You’ll have experience of providing excellent customer service and motivating a team to do the same.

You’ll have an eye for detail and will ensure a safe, clean and inviting environment for customers, staff and volunteers.

Previous experience of working in a retail environment is highly desirable.

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

About us

For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world.

We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.

Working at Sense can be incredibly rewarding; we offer the opportunity to work in a large, diverse and successful charity where people can develop their skills, knowledge and careers in a supportive and flexible environment.
