Job Description

Are you an experienced multi-site retail leader with a passion for people? Are you driven by a desire to make a difference in this world? Would you like to feel that you are working for something bigger than the bottom line? If so, then this could be the job for you!

Salvos Stores has a vacancy for the position of Area Manager, Northern Tasmania reporting directly to the Regional Manager VIC/TAS. This is a permanent position.

As an Area Manager you will inspire and nurture your team of passionate and dedicated Store Managers, all focused on delivering great social, environmental and business outcomes for their store. Your leadership will ensure Salvos Stores provides an inspiring in-store experience for our team, customers and community members.

Our unique business proposition means that no two products - and no two days - are the same. You will therefore be adaptable, comfortable with change, and able to respond quickly to challenges as they arise.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Leading, growing and developing a team of paid employees and volunteers
  • Ensuring extraordinary customer service is provided every day, in every interaction
  • Reading, analysing and interpreting business reports to deliver on all business targets and outcomes
  • Embedding exceptional operational and visual merchandising standards
  • Role-modeling a 'safety first' culture in our stores
  • Opening new stores, and overseeing all refurbishments
  • Ensuring company policies and procedures are adhered to

Working for Salvos Stores is a rewarding experience, which goes beyond a normal job. Our surplus is directed into programs run by The Salvation Army, so every day our teams come to work knowing their efforts can literally transform lives.

To be successful in this role you must possess excellent people leadership and multi-site retail management abilities. You will be an outstanding written and verbal communicator, with demonstrated ability to inspire people through change.

You will be a high energy, hands-on individual and will bring your proven track record in providing extraordinary customer service to the role. As someone known for your integrity, you will be comfortable aligning to The Salvation Army Mission and Values.

If you're excited by this unique opportunity, the above sounds like you, and you have a heart for working for an organisation that truly does transform lives, we would love to speak to you.
