When it comes to retail, we are leaders in the sector. We have over 700 stores all over the UK. Our stores are a firm fixture on UK high streets, visited by over 30 million customers each year, who come to us to buy their beds, sofas, chairs, homewares, electrical goods, books and clothing through our omni-channel offering.
More than 1 in 4 of us still die from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. And nearly a million people are living with the life changing effects of heart failure.
We urgently need to fund more research to find answers fit for 21stcentury challenges.
About the role
Our Managers lead by example. Your hard work and commitment means we are able to invest donations from the public into heart and circulatory research to help us all live longer, healthier lives with the people we love.
You will be responsible for stock control & movement and organising van drivers to prepare collections and deliveries, whilst working in a way that reduces the risk of injury and damage to all other assets of the business, in accordance with all safety regulations, promoting safety and wellbeing.
Great customer service is essential to maximise income as is the sourcing and merchandising of home products, with omni-channel and online being priority to deliver our retail proposition.
It's hard work, with lots of heavy lifting, but no two days are the same, and you'll find it really rewarding helping to beat heart break forever.
You’ll be an experienced Assistant Manager who is confident working in a fast-paced environment. Working with the Store Management Team you will have the passion and leadership skills to motivate a team of staff and volunteers, encouraging them to bring new ideas and to build their knowledge of the BHF.
Motivated by the knowledge your hard work will make a life-saving difference, you’ll be proactive, driven, commercially aware, including e-commerce.
In return you’ll be rewarded with autonomy in role and a supportive culture that encourages a healthy work life balance with opportunities to progress. Why join the BHF?
Everything we do comes back to beating heartbreak from all heart and circulatory conditions including heart failure, stroke and vascular dementia.
Every hour of research we’ve ever funded, every item we’ve ever sold, every campaign we’ve ever run, all the support we’ve ever given.
The donations we receive are used to make people’s lives healthier and longer.
We invest heavily in the development of our 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.
A career with us will allow your entrepreneurial spirit to flourish. What’s more, you’ll have a job that makes a difference as every day, your time, energy and skills are helping fund life- saving research.
