Team Leader - Edinburgh

‘We’re thinking big by going small’

As the Concession Team Leader you’ll support the Mini Habitat Manager in keeping the Mini Habitat store ticking when they’re not there. To do this, you’ll need infectious enthusiasm for our brand and our products, because this will be you and your team’s motivation and inspiration for giving every customer sparkling service.

A commercial, creative thinker, you’ll support your manager to lead the team towards explosive sales and profit, whilst creating a slick but irresistibly inspiring environment, both for them to work in and for your customers to shop.

About the Habitat brand

Since 1964, Habitat has been challenging the way people style and shop for their homes. We’re an iconic homeware and furniture retailer that’s going through exciting times: alongside our three long-standing London flagship stores and extensive website, the brand is thinking big by going small – with many new Mini stores planned for 2017.

For over 50 years Habitat has created good design that’s useful, distinctive and just a little witty. We recognise that today there are more brands than ever selling furniture, but we’re strong in our conviction that we’re true originals, because almost every piece in our collection is designed by us.

As a Mini Habitat Team Leader, you’ll support your manager to:

Bring out the best in your Mini Habitat, using your commercial and operational know-how to make it perform brilliantly
Deliver the Mini Habitat KPIs and objectives to energetically contribute towards the overall strategy
Create strong relationships, closely collaborating with the Argos store management team to deliver your shared business goals
Hit your goals by inspiring, leading and coaching your team to reach consistently amazing results
Lead your team to provide your customers with Habitat’s renowned service culture – every single time

Your experience, skills and qualities will ideally include being:

A motivator of teams through your management style in a highly customer focused environment
Highly commercial, super focused and energetic
A problem-solver and data-interpreter
An unshakably solid planner, with top-notch organisational skills
Ambitious, driven and self-motivated
An articulate and fluent communicator – whoever you’re talking to and whatever their level
