About the role

Department Manager

B&Q Nottingham Area (Nottingham, Loughborough, Netherfield, Melton Mowbray)

Full-time - 39 hours per week (Monday - Sunday 5/7 days)

Permanent Contract

£23,000 - £25,000 per annum

This is a Department Manager role requiring flexibility to work in B&Q Nottingham, Loughborough, Netherfield and Melton Mowbray stores. Successful candidate will spend a number of months training in a store based in these areas before taking responsibility for their own department in one of the stores.

We believe anyone can improve their home to make life better. Every day, we give our millions of customers the ideas, advice, tools and confidence they need to create a home they’ll love. Join us as a Department Manager and you’ll be a big part of this.

Key responsibilities

We’re thinking more ambitiously about how our stores can offer our customers even more. Creating a store within a store, you’ll get to think big too. You’ll make things happen – setting standards, coming up with ideas, and finding fresh ways to make your team and department the best they can be. You’ll keep customer service levels high and use your customer knowledge to spot opportunities to give them even more. It’ll be your department to run. But, because we’re so big on teamwork, you won’t tackle the challenge alone.

Required Skills & Experience

Positive, hands on, and eager to bring your own ideas to the table, you’ll feel right at home with us. You’ve got plenty of customer service experience, along with a love of all things home improvement. You’ll be happy to expand your skills by using new technology and learning new ways of working. You’re flexible too – able to cover store opening hours on a rota basis, including evenings, weekends and bank holidays. And, perhaps most importantly, you know how to keep a team motivated, engaged, and pulling together as one.

Career Progression

We want to ensure that all employees, future employees and applicants to all Kingfisher companies are treated equally regardless of age, gender, marital or civil partnership status, colour, ethnic or national origin, culture, religious belief, philosophical belief, political opinion, disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.

Accelerated Development Talent Programmes

We do this by designing a number of programmes which help you to practice your skills and learn new ones, gain valuable experiences, learn from others and jump on opportunities that are right for you. From leaders taking their first steps into management to those simply looking for a new challenge, we're there to make sure you achieve your ambitions.

Induction

At B&Q, we want every new colleague to understand our values, our customers, and how we work together to achieve our purpose. That’s why we’ve designed an induction programme that’ll give you real insight into our business, our culture and help you feel included from day one. For your first few weeks on the job you’ll work with your team and line manager, mixing online learning with practical tasks, to grow your knowledge a little every day.
