Rieker Shoes – Concession Manager
An exciting opportunity to run a new Rieker shoe concession within Elphicks Department Store in the centre of Farnham, selling the world’s leading Antistress Footwear brand.
The concession is due to open within the next few weeks and will stock a great range of footwear and accessories for men and women.
We are looking for a manager with experience of retail who can drive and develop the concession, motivate the staff and engage with customers. The role is very much a “Hands On” management role as the manager in our stores and concessions is the main sales person and usually, the only full time member of staff.
Paperwork and interference from head office is kept to a minimum. Managers are encouraged to run stores and concessions as though they were their own business units, but obviously with guidance and discussion with management from head office. In a concession, the Manager, whilst employed by Rieker, is the vital liaison between us and Elphicks on a daily basis.
Our other store managers are a friendly bunch who are always there to support each other.
Of course, being retail, weekend work is also required. In our stores and concessions, Managers tend to work Saturdays (often our busiest day) and take Sundays and another week day off.
The Manager needs to be able to walk the fine line between being one of the team and yet being able to assert his or her authority.
Our customers are a very loyal and friendly bunch, and we need them to feel a part of a happy and welcoming environment in our stores and concessions.
Applicants should have enthusiastic personality and the ability to be able to engage in a positive way with customers and staff.
Experience of dealing with people and running a team is more important than direct footwear experience although that would, of course, be advantageous.
You should be able to operate a computer as we use Excel and Outlook as well as our till systems.
Accuracy with cash handling and electronic till system essential.
Job Type: Full-time
Salary: £21,000.00-£25,000.00 per year
