Salvos Stores has a vacancy for the position of Store Manager in Croydon, and we guarantee this is a job like no other.

About the Role:

Are you a retail leader with a passion for people? Are you driven by a desire to make a difference in this world? Would you like the satisfaction of knowing your commercial leadership will be working for something bigger than the bottom line? 

If so, then this could be the job for you!

Our Croydon store plays a pivotal role in supporting the local community and is a destination for the second-hand retail enthusiasts in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We’re looking for a talented leader who loves retail, loves a challenge, and loves waking up each day with a passion for making a difference.

Our unique business proposition in Salvos Stores means that no two products are the same, and every day is literally a different day; we’re looking for someone who’ll thrive as a leader in our business, and have the capabilities and drive to lead and grow the Croydon business.

As a retail leader it goes without saying that you’ll be experienced in:

  • Leading, growing and developing a team of paid employees and volunteers across multiple departments
  • Ensuring extraordinary customer service is provided every day, in every interaction
  • Reading, analysing and interpreting business reports to deliver on all business targets and outcomes, including using spreadsheets and other applications as required
  • Embedding exceptional operational and visual merchandising standards
  • Role-modeling a ‘safety first’ culture
  • Ensuring company policies and procedures are adhered to

Importantly, as someone known for your integrity, you will also be comfortable aligning to The Salvation Army Mission and Values to positively support and impact the lives of others through your career contribution.

To be successful in this role you must possess excellent people leadership and management abilities. You will be an outstanding written and verbal communicator with strong interpersonal skills.  Solid technical skills and experience using Workday HCM system experience, highly regarded.
