Join our Team
Thank you for your interest in working for the Oak Tree Animals’ Charity.
A unique retail opportunity.
Oak Tree Animals’ Charity has been helping animals for 100 years. During that time what is expected of us by our supporters has changed. However, our work for animals in need still remains our prime objective. As part of our expansion in the community, we are opening a Charity Shop in Carlisle to be followed by another in Cumbria. The appointed person will lead a team committed to this expansion.
We are seeking an experienced retail professional, ideally with a background and understanding of the Charity Sector. You will be responsible for all aspects of the venture from market and customer research to stock management and quality of service, from profitability to window displays. The role will also involve working with, managing and recruiting volunteers. We are determined to offer both value and a great customer experience. To deliver this you will need great communications skills plus motivational leadership skills.
In return for your talents, we offer a salary of up to £18,000 pa and 28 days holiday per year. The working week is 37.5 hours and is based on five days from seven including weekends. Because this role will cover both shops you must hold a full driving licence and be prepared to split your time according to business needs.
Please send your CV and a covering letter setting out why you are the person we need to:
The closing date is 24th August 2018.
