Salary: £23000 - £27000
Closing Date: 2nd January 2018

We are pleased to be able to offer an exciting new opportunity to join our Oxfordshire based client as a Shop Manager within their lovely independent Garden Centre.

With an excellent rate of pay commensurate with experience as Garden Centre Shop Manager you will be responsible for managing a small team dealing with all goods in - checking goods off, reporting shortages, making credit requests and storing the over-stock. There will be opportunities for seasonal and inspirational life-style displays of giftware and furniture items within the Garden Centre, as well as the merchandising and pricing of the ordinary stock items and in-store promotions.

The ideal candidate will be well-organised, disciplined, imaginative, able to make decisions and problem solve. You will have several years of retail experience, ideally in a Garden Centre and be happy working on the shop floor, facing up goods as they are sold, and interacting with all their lovely customers!

Alternate weekend working will be required with a regular day off in the week. Because they are a small team you will also have to be able to cover the till with cashing up and key-holding responsibilities. You will have full holiday entitlements and the opportunity to join the company pension scheme if you wish.
