About Us

Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. In the UK and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children's unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

About the Role

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our Retail growth plans as we recruit more Shop Managers to join our team and help us deliver the full potential of our amazing volunteer-led shops!  

You'll be joining one of our brilliant shop teams as part of our ongoing plans to grow our Retail teams and deliver inspiring retail spaces across the UK. We want to bring the wonders of charity shops back to our high-street and we need driven and passionate people to get us there!

About You

You will be someone with exceptional people skills, a leader who understands the importance of community and enjoys supporting people to exercise similar passions through volunteering. 

You'll bring: 

  • Proven experience leading and inspiring teams 
  • A strong understanding of what good looks like in a busy and successful community-led shop, ideally with some experience within Retail or a clear passion for sustainable fashion and knowledge of products and trends 
  • A can-do attitude and ability to approach challenges in a positive way, knowing when to reach out for support and guidance where you need it. 

Previous charity retail experience is not essential. If you have transferable leadership skills or experience managing volunteers in other settings and are looking for a new challenge, we'd love to hear from you! 

To learn more about the position, please review the Job Description in the attached Documents 

Ways of Working: This role will be based on-site at the shop(s) you apply for, working 5 days / 35 hours per week to include some weekend working.

Flexible Working - We are happy to discuss flexible working options at interview.

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion: 

Save the Children UK believes in a world that is fair, inclusive and equitable where all children have the opportunity to change their world. We apply this to our workforce and we are committed to developing and supporting a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organisation where all employees have a sense of belonging and feel that they can be "Free to Be Me". We are not looking for just one type of person - we want to recruit people who can add fresh perspectives, innovative ideas or challenge that disrupts the risk of group think. 

We are especially interested in people whose childhood experiences - of life on a low income, of migration, of being in a racialised community, of the care system, of being LGBT+ or in an LGBT+ family or living with (or with someone with) a disability - help us to see things we might otherwise miss. Whatever your story is we want to hear it because we know that different voices, ideas, perspectives and knowledge, working together will enable us to better the lives of children around the world. This is the reason why we are all here.
