Retail Store Manager


We’re looking for a passionate retail store manager for our Henderson Family Store preferably with experience in second hand retail with a strong focus on operations, sorting and sales. 

Our Ideal retail store manager has the excellent ability to present a shop that sells – a lot.  You will also be a person with huge compassion, who recognises that not all our customers are there because they adore the treasures that reward a diligent second-hand shopaholic.  Many who shop with us are trying to make ends meet.

Our successful retail store manager will have the privilege of funding the mission of The Salvation Army through smart retailing decisions and the ability to streamline the complexities of processing the inbound flow of donated goods and transforming them into desirable offerings for shoppers.

You would also have strong people skills – with the ability to lead and motivate volunteers as well as paid staff whilst maintaining a compassionate caring culture for all the people who make up the family store community - including the vulnerable.

You will be a person who would rather be in the store than in the office and have a life philosophy that aligns with the Salvation Army’s Christian Faith based mission.

This is a wonderful opportunity to put your business skills to work “giving back”.  Job satisfaction is off-the-scale for someone who can put heart into a business that is making the community a better place.

Previous applicants need not apply. Only applicants with the legal right to work in New Zealand should apply for this role.

Please email your CV (including referee contact details) and covering letter to Fraser Kearse 

Application close at 5pm on Friday 24 October 2014.

 Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church and human service provider. It is committed to caring for people, transforming lives and reforming society – all through the love of God shown in Jesus. The successful applicant should therefore show an ability to identify with the mission and values of The Salvation Army.
