We are hiring for an Assistant Store Manager to join one of our exciting Stores based in Swindon. There’s an established team in place, and you will be working directly with them to help create the best Customer shopping experience possible. Footasylum is a business that believes in our front-end Retail staff.
An Assistant Manager will be responsible for assisting the Store Manager with the Store’s day-to-day responsibilities. You will do so by taking on managerial tasks such as overseeing employees, modelling effective leadership and offering excellent customer service. A primary responsibility of an Assistant Manager is to carry out the Manager’s role in their absence. You will utilise this role to essentially acquire and develop a Store Manager’s duties and ultimately be in training to advance to this position.
We invest in our training and development and this role will be no different. Our aim is to continue to build and create an environment where our employee can achieve, develop, and progress. You will be supported in your journey, and we will celebrate with you, every step of the way. Regular 1-2-1’s, training, and support will be available but most importantly, you will be given all the tools to help you thrive and feel empowered on your journey with us.
We also have a track record of progression, support, and training. We have a plethora of examples across our teams where people have progressed upwards or into completely new opportunities within the business. Ultimately your development is paramount to us, and we want to help support you to achieve your goals.
We’ve been on a journey, growing significantly over the last few years. We are vibrant, engaged and performing well. Innovation is key to our business, and we have been looking at how we deliver value to our wider Retail estate.
We want to create a place for colleagues to do their best work, and you will have the opportunity to influence our decisions, help define Retail standards across the Estate and contribute to a happy and healthy working environment.
