At Cornwall Hospice Care our 26 Retail stores make up the biggest charity shop chain in Cornwall, stretching from Bude in the north to Penzance in the far west.  They represent the business end of our charity, contributing £720,000 in the last financial year to the care we provide.  It costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients and we raise the vast majority via the support of people in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 26 shops.

We’re working hard to challenge the perception of the Charity Retail sector and are looking for a dynamic, proactive and results driven individual to join the team.  If you’re passionate about the retail sector, want to work for a cause rather than just turning a profit and are Community minded, with a commitment to sustainability and recycling we’d love to hear from you.

As Deputy Manager you will work closely with the Retail Managers in the ‘Cluster’, deputising in their absence, providing inspiring leadership to the volunteer team and contributing to the growth and success of our Retail stores.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to develop their retail management expertise.  Working with the Retail Managers you will gain hands on experience of the position, developing your leadership, coaching and business skills.

The primary work base is our St Austell store, however you will be required to travel our Bodmin and Wadebridge stores on a regular basis.  You must hold a clean and current Drivers Licence.  In addition to the salary, a car allowance of £1000 per annum is payable to recognise the requirement for you to work from alternative work locations.

This is a full-time permanent position, working a total of 37.5 hours per week.  The working days will be days/hours/as per a Rota and will include regular weekend work and Bank Holidays when required.
