Shaw Trust is a progressive charity on an exciting journey to help five times more people over the next five years. For over 30 years, we have supported disabled and disadvantaged people to make positive changes to their lives through training and employment, and our ambitious plans need the right people to help us transform many more lives, in many more ways.

We have an opportunity for an experienced buyer/end of lines manager and sales professional to join our team and assist with the development and delivery of Shaw Trust’s retail offering.

You will play a major role in building relationships with corporate partners to solicit regular/one off donations. With the support of a Retail Administrator, you will manage every aspect of donated and purchased stock for our charity shops and online channels, ensuring that the product range is competitive and relevant to our targeted audiences. The aim is to generate a maximum of funds which can then be reinvested in charitable projects

With a strong background in sourcing, buying and evaluating products/stock ranges, you will have proven research and sales projection experience and the ability to work with corporates in a fundraising environment. First class negotiating, analytical and influencing skills are essential, along with excellent logistical and organisational skills and a flexible approach in order to deal with the varying demands of the role.

The Trust offers excellent benefits and development opportunities. Working with us gives you far more benefits than the standard package; it gives you the chance to help turn someone’s life around.
