We are recruiting a Manager for our first charity shop, in South Wales. This is a pivotal role in the delivery of our fundraising strategy, reporting direct to the Board of Trustees.

The Manager will be responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day running of the charity shop, supervising a Deputy Manager (when appointed) and volunteers working within the shop.

The successful candidate will need to have previous experience of the charity retail sector, be a self-starter and able to run a retail operation which will include training and managing volunteers. He/she must be capable of managing a busy workload, able to prioritise tasks and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

This is a permanent, full-time position (37 hours per week) and will be based at the shop premises in Pontypridd, South Wales.

Salary range: £15,000 to £18,000 per annum, depending on experience. The package offered will also include further formal training opportunities and a generous annual holiday allowance.
