Charity Shop Manager Wanted

The RSPCA Sussex East and Hastings Branch are looking for a Charity Shop Manager to build on the success of their shop in Western Road, Bexhill.

  • Full time postion
  • 35 hours per week
  • Salary negotiable 
  • Location - Western Road, Bexhill

The Branch helps to rescue and rehome over 200 animals each year in Hastings and Rother.

Our charity shop plays a vital part in raising money to care for the animals who rely on us for help, as well as providing us with a great platform to promote the fantastic work of the RSPCA Bluebell Ridge Cattery in Hastings. When you become a member of our charity shop team, you're not just helping us to raise much needed funds - you're helping to save the lives of local animals in need.

The role is a rewarding position, making a direct contribution towards animal welfare and combining variety and challenge in a people focused competitive environment. 

We are looking for a passionate individual, with proven management, administrative and organisational skills. Leading a diverse team of volunteers, you will be required to take responsibility for all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the business. You will be required to maintain a high standard of merchandising and display, and ensure the stock process flows smoothly and efficiently in order to achieve maximum sales. You will also be required to be proactive in the generation of sufficient stock and able to manage a selection of bought in goods with the aim of maximising profits. 

The successful candidate will be able to show commercial awareness, demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and possess a flexible and adaptable attitude when working under pressure. You must also enjoy the excitement of a retail environment but most importantly, love people and have the ability to lead, inspire and empower those around you.

Retail management experience is essential to the role. Good time management, administrative and organisational skills are also essential. 

To apply for this position, please send a copy of your CV and a covering letter outlining your reasons for wishing to apply for this post, your relevant skills and experience and why you think you would be an ideal candidate to join our shop team.

Tabby DSH, female, 1 year approx.Henrietta has come on such a long way with her confidence since she arrived at the cattery. With lots of TLC and trust building, she's gone from a scared little cat, too afraid to allow contact, to popping out of her pod to sit on your lap for a fuss (and a few cheeky treats). She's also started to explore the cattery a little, but comes back to us for a bit of rub round for reassurance. She's an amazing little character who, with a nurturing and committed owner or older family, will blossom and grow in confidence all the more. She's such a gentle cat, and with not a bad bone in her body, she's looking for someone to give her a second chance.
Ginger DSH, male, 14 years old approx.Ivan is a dear and sensitive gentleman who was a stray before he came to us and looked like he had to fend for himself for some time. He would like nothing more than a cosy home to call his own, and a safe spot to snuggle down. Ivan is very shy and requires a patient owner who he could learn to trust and gain confidence. Once he is comfortable, he will really enjoy a fuss and loves being brushed. He would like a quiet home with an older family and could possibly be an indoor cat in a spacious environment. His adoption fee will be reduced as we'd rather Ivan spent his senior years in a comfortable loving home.Ivan is currently in a foster home. Please ask for details.  
Ginger and white DLH, female, 11 years old approx.Tess is a beautiful girl with a personality to match. She is looking for a fresh start in life with someone who can shower her with love, as she so deserves. She is very loveable and enjoys snuggling up on your lap for a snooze. She would be a perfect companion for someone looking for a homely cat. Her confidence has come on leaps and bounds since she came to us. When she first arrived, she was in shock initially and was very scared of the other cats around her. Although still not keen on her feline neighbours, she's realised she's safe and this has allowed her loving nature to shine through. She would therefore really benefit from a home as only pet and without young children where she can kick back and relax. Whoever adopts this gorgeous girl will be very lucky and well rewarded.
