We are opening a new Donation Centre which will combine the ease of dropping off at a clothing bank, with the friendliness of a charity shop as well as including innovative community access activities and repair and re-use services.
We are looking for a talented and committed Assistant Manager for the Centre. Whether you have a commercial or charity retail background, as long as you are committed to our causes and have the enthusiasm, energy and experience to pioneer this new venture, we are interested in hearing from you.
As the Assistant Manager you will be involved in all areas of the business supporting the Manager in the day to day running of the business. This will include receiving donations from the general public and local Business as well as organising collections from private houses and other locations. All of which will be processed and delivered to local SA shops, sold on the premises or redistributed. We will also be offering a repair and reuse service to the community which helps divert as many unwanted goods away from landfill where practical.
You will assist in the day to day running of the centre, and be expected to respond to queries raised by customers, head office and the team. On a regular basis you will have the responsibility for opening and closing the centre and be involved in the ongoing recruitment and training of volunteers and staff.
The ideal candidate will have:
Previous operational/retail experience
