Up to £40,000 per annum + Bonus + Pension + 6.6 Weeks Holiday
London Borough of Wandsworth & Surrounding Areas
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 Store Manager and you’ll be a big part of this.
At B&Q, we’re passionate about progression and we’re committed to growing talent from within. We also recognise the important experience that new leaders add, onboarding several designate managers through the year.
As a B&Q designate manager, you’ll have the unique opportunity to learn about us and our business, typically spending 3-6 months working across a cluster of stores (in London Borough of Wandsworth area). You’ll experience management training in various store formats before being placed into your own department or store.
Due to the nature of this role, there’ll be some flexibility and travel required during your time as a designate, before being placed into B&Q Express or B&Q Local.
We’re thinking more ambitiously about how our stores can offer our customers even more, so we’ll want you to be ambitious about how you make a store that inspires customers and colleagues alike. Ambitious about how to raise performance and customer service levels even higher. And about how to give everyone in your team the opportunity to be all they can be. Get these right and you won’t just deliver great figures – you’ll create the kind of store you’ve always wanted to run.
Required skills & experience
An experienced retail leader with bags of ideas and a creative streak, you’ll feel right at home with us. You’re a natural motivator with brilliant people skills and the ability to lead by example when it comes to customer service. You’ll be happy to expand your skills by using new technology and learning new ways of working. You’re flexible enough to cover bank holidays, evenings and weekends too. And, above all, you know how to create an environment where team members feel supported, valued, and encouraged to offer ideas.
What's in it for me?
As part of a great team, you’ll be valued for who you are.We’re committed to making B&Q more diverse and representative of the communities we serve, where everyone can feel they belong and have equal opportunities. You will have access to a range of networks that represent our colleagues and allies and help us to continue to put diversity and inclusion at the heart of our business.
We also recognise that wellness means different things to different people, and we want to help colleagues be at their best and feel well by offering a range of benefits to help you. As well as a competitive salary, our benefits package includes an award-winning pension scheme, ShareSave options, 6.6 weeks holiday, payroll giving, an Employee Assistance Programme, shopping discounts, colleague wellbeing benefits and lots more! We also provide generous breaks to make sure you’re refreshed and able to perform at your best.
