Garden Centre Manager
We are recruiting for a garden centre in the Telford / Shrewsbury region. The Garden Centre has a diverse stock range (think plants, sundries, furniture, and pet food to name a few). You will take a hands on management approach to lead each team in their own specific departments. Our client is looking to create a unique retail environment, and the perfect candidate will have some entrepreneurial flair and will be able to drive the business forward and become one of the leading centres within the group. Key duties include:
- Plan seasonal marketing and sales strategies and implement these through to the team members so everyone is working in the right direction
- Recruiting and managing the staff rota
- Ensuring all point of sale material is on brand, and high quality
- Constantly find ways of improving your department and motivating your staff to achieve agreed company objectives.
To apply for this role, it is essential you have experience of managing a garden centre, ideally with some plant knowledge (otherwise you will have a supportive team at the ready until you brush up on your horticultural knowledge).
