At the British Heart Foundation (BHF), we fight for every heartbeat, everyday. In the last year alone, we’ve invested more than £120m in hundreds of life saving research projects across the UK, and helped countless communities beat heart disease with our prevention, survival and support programmes.

We’re looking for someone to join our award-winning retail division, we’re the largest and most successful charity retailer in the country, with over 560 fashion stores, 175 furniture and electrical stores delivering a vital profit of over £34m a year.  We have 3,300 staff and over 25,000 volunteers across the BHF serving 17 million customers a year.  Our furniture & electrical stores have had 5.5 million visits in the last year alone.

Reporting into the Store Manager, you’ll be an experienced retailer who wants to use all your retail skills in a very fast moving environment and to know that your contribution will make a lifesaving difference.

The role is critical to assisting the management team in running an efficient store, so you’ll be commercially aware, driven, well organised, and hands on. You`ll also have the passion and leadership skills to motivate a team of staff and volunteers in order to maximise income. 

In return we’ll provide you with the opportunity to work for an exciting and growing organisation that offers a welcoming and supportive working environment and the opportunity to progress within the business.
