    We’re looking for a motivated assistant shop manager to join Cancer Research UK’s trading team. You’ll be acting as an ambassador for Cancer Research UK, supporting the shop manager and your team to maximise income through people, resources and stock.

    In a lively, vibrant working environment, you’ll discover something new every day, whether it’s a new high street trend, a new community network or a talent you never knew you had.

    You’ll also be surrounded by people who are as dedicated to beating cancer as you are.  

    What will I be doing?

    Supporting the shop manager to guide, inspire and engage a diverse team of paid staff and volunteers.

    Support the commercial running of the store including display and merchandising, stock management, maintaining shop standards, store layout, sales and income.

    Experience of working in a lively and vibrant environment.

    Adaptability in changing situations, including being able to work effectively independently.    

    Commercial awareness.

    The ability to create relationships and communicate well.

    And ideally supervisor experience, and experience of working in, or an understanding of retail and fashion.

    Our retail teams cover the needs of their stores by working on a rota basis. Whilst a level of flexibility is needed to meet the needs of the business, we don’t forget that you have a life outside of work too. 

    What will I gain?

    Each and every one of our employees contributes to our progress and is supporting our work to beat cancer. We think that’s impressive.

    In return, we make sure you are supported by a generous benefits package, a wide range of career and personal development opportunities and high-quality tools, policies and processes to enable you to do your job well.

    How do I apply?

    We operate an anonymised shortlisting process in our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. CVs are required for all applications; but we won’t be able to view them until we invite you for an interview. Instead, we ask you to complete the work history section of the online application form for us to be able to assess you quickly, fairly and objectively.
