Assistant Manager - Shrewsbury / Walsall - Designate
About the role
Here at Halfords we like nothing more than to recruit, grow and develop talent. We look for Assistant Managers who display the passion, skills and attributes to be a Store Manager of the future! We’ll give you the tools and the training; it’s up to you to demonstrate your success!
Day to day your responsibilities as an Assistant Manager will include;
• Supporting the Store Manager with the overall operation of the store – deputising in your Store Managers absence
• Inspiring store colleagues to deliver the very best level of customer service and product knowledge – so that sales are maximised and customers are ‘wowed’ every time they visit a Halfords store
• Delivering excellent Bike Hut and Car Maintenance fitting and repair services
• Coaching and developing store colleagues – ensuring everyone has the skills and technical knowledge to perform to their potential
• Engaging and motivating store colleagues – encouraging a culture of fun
• Keeping your store environment commercial and well merchandised
• Being an ambassador for Halfords - helping to drive our Retail business strategy forward
Our store structure will vary depending on size and turnover. An Assistant Manager in a larger store could be responsible for either the Auto or Cycle departments. This means you will be running your own smaller business and will be accountable for the success of your specific area.
To apply for this role you will need to be able to demonstrate similar retail management experience, gained at Assistant Manager/Duty Manager level in a large retail store or Store Manager in a small/medium sized retail store. You’ll aspire to be a leader who can motivate, coach and develop a team to deliver outstanding customer service, sales and profit results. Finally you will possess a passion for working at Halfords and love our products and services.
Halfords are the UKs leading retailer of leisure and automotive products and the UKs leading operator in garage serving and auto repair. Our retail business boasts over 460 stores, on-line shopping, a delivery service and in-store collection. Just to top this off, for the second year running we are a Sunday Times best big company to work for!
In return, you'll get an excellent base salary, pension and benefits package including performance related bonus, 25% colleague discount (available in our retail stores as well as at our Autocentres), access to a range of discounts on everyday goods, financial products and services, as well as the option to join our ShareSave and Cycle2Work schemes.
