British Heart Foundation shops and ongoing expansion plans. Our furniture and electrical stores are a firm fixture on UK high streets, visited by over 30 million customers each year.

A career with us will allow your entrepreneurial spirit to flourish. What’s more, you’ll have a job that makes a difference as every day, your time, energy and skills are helping fund life- saving research.

About the role

You will have the passion and leadership skills to motivate the team of staff and volunteers within the region that you’re covering, encouraging them to bring new ideas and to build their knowledge of the BHF. Great customer service is essential to maximise income as is the sourcing and merchandising of products.

This is a key role to work in the highest turnover store in the BHF. The store will shortly be moving to a new 21000sq ft site. 

About you

You’ll be an experienced retail assistant manager or supervisor who is confident working in a fast paced environment. Motivated by the knowledge your hard work will make a life-saving difference, you’ll be proactive, driven and commercially aware. In return you’ll be rewarded with autonomy in role and a supportive culture that encourages a healthy work life balance with opportunities to progress. The ideal candidate will have some retail and supervisory/management experience.
