In this hands-on role, you will support the shop manager to run a profitable, customer-focussed shop that is the ‘window of the British Red Cross’ on the high street. From working on the shop floor, to coordinating activity “behind the scenes”, no two days are the same.

Alongside the shop manager, you will help to create a brilliant shopping environment and provide an excellent customer experience in store. You will support the manager to oversee a team of dedicated volunteers, supporting their induction, management, and development. Together, you’ll all represent the British Red Cross to a high standard and embody our core values.

“I’m not delivering to a profit target to enhance someone’s personal wealth – I’m making a real, visible contribution to supporting the work of my chosen charity” – Joanne, Regional Retail Manager
