Department Head - Gardening Sundries (West Sussex)
Salary: Excellent

Department Head | Gardening Sundries (ref:DS9120)

Location: West Sussex
Salary: Excellent
Date: 24 Feb
Job Type: Full-Time
Duration: Permanent

Our client is one of the UK's largest Garden Centre Groups, with 19 centres throughout the UK. They hold a profitable, prominent position within the garden centre industry priding themselves on an inspirational approach to retailing which gives them a creative point of difference in the market. Their centres and restaurants offer style and innovation in an aspirational environment which encourages loyalty and satisfaction from customers.

This West Sussex based centre started life over 30 years ago. Boasting a multi-award winning plant area and a wide range of gardening products, fertilisers, tools, seeds and chemicals, it has become one of the largest, most successful garden centres in the South of England.

The centre is due for a major redevelopment shortly which will see it expand significantly and will include a fully refurbished garden sundries department so there has never been a better time to join this growing team!

As a Department Head, you will be responsible for running the department and managing a team, and experience of this within a retail environment is essential. You can make a real difference from day one as you will be involved in driving sales, creating stunning and inspirational visual displays, managing stock levels, and motivating and developing your team.

You will gain a real sense of ownership over your department as you drive sales and profitability by maximising space productivity, replenishment, and merchandising. The customer is the focus of everything our client does, so you will ensure that they always receive an exceptional level of service.

To be the ideal candidate you will have experience of working in a fast-paced retail environment at a management or supervisory level. You will be a great communicator with an ability to inspire your team. You will have a great eye for detail with a creative edge to ensure high retail standards are consistently maintained in terms of product placement and presentation.

As well as a rewarding career with potential for career development, you can expect a competitive salary, attractive staff discount and paid holidays.

If this sounds like you then we would love to hear from you.
