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, male, 10 years old.King Louie is an affectionate chap, he can come across a little shy at first but once he's comfortable in his surroundings he quickly gains confidence. He loves to sit next to you having an abundance of strokes and would happily stay there for hours on end and chat to you all day! He is a sensitive soul so would need a quiet home with no other pets or children and a neighbourhood with few cats. He has been used to exploring outside in his previous home, and it would be nice for him to have a good size garden to head out into eventually. Louie is with a foster carer.Provisional Reserve
Tortie & White DLH female, 8 years old.Maple is a beautiful troubled soul in need of understanding and kindness. She needs a patient and calm owner, who can help develop her confidence at her own pace. Maple is very wary of feet in particular and panics if she feels cornered, which is why she needs a quiet household with no children or other pets. She needs access to a litter tray in an area that is very quiet and easily accessible where she won’t be interrupted. If you are an experienced cat owner who is able to give a great deal of time into helping Maple, please contact us. Maple is currently with a Foster Carer.Provisional Reserve
Ginger Tabby & White DSH, male, 3 years old.Oscar is a cheeky young lad with lots of energy. He needs someone who can offer him plenty of opportunities to play as he loves his feather fishing rod toy. He also enjoys his puzzle feeder which gets his brain working too. Oscar is looking for an adult only household with plenty of outdoor space for him to explore. He will be a great companion in the right home, with no other pets.
