The opportunity

Join us as a Sunday Sales Assistant at our shop in Aberdeen (31 Union Street, AB11 5BP.)

About the role

Our Sales Assistants work alongside the management team and volunteers to ensure the efficient running of the store. You will support in driving shop performance and will also be responsible for the shop operations in the absence of the Management team. You will be given lots of autonomy and will strive to continually build your knowledge of the BHF.

A career with us will allow your entrepreneurial spirit to flourish.  By joining our dedicated teams, you will be part of helping to create the next big breakthrough, from heart transplants and pacemakers, to stents and clot busting drugs. What’s more, you’ll have a job that helps keep millions of hearts beating and millions of families together.

This position is for 5 hours a week, working every Sunday. As a keyholder  you may be responsible for the store when there isn't a manager on duty and this may involve lone working. Therefore, applicants must be 18yrs and over.

About you

You will have previous experience in a retail or service environment and you will be comfortable sharing your experience or guiding the activity of volunteer team members. Motivated by the knowledge your hard work will make a life-saving difference, you’ll be proactive, driven and customer focused.

About Us

We have over 700 stores all over the UK and serve over 30 million customers each year via our omni-channel offerings.  With donations from the public, we’re investing in ground-breaking research that will get us closer than ever to a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.
Why join the BHF?

More than 1 in 4 of us still die from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. And nearly a million people are living with the life changing effects of heart failure. We urgently need to fund more research to find answers fit for 21st century challenges. So, if you’re looking for the first step in your retail career then we could have the role for you. We value, nurture and invest heavily in our staff because they’re the people behind our success. We are proud to offer a welcoming and supportive working environment and a sector leading benefits package.
