Store Manager - Swindon Bridgemead (Inside Sainsbury's)
The Store Manager role is integral to our business. As a Store Manager, you will set the standard in store. You will be a role model, an inspirational leader and consistently deliver your performance targets. Above all, you will keep the customer at the heart of everything you do.
You’ll be taking the lead in a one of our ‘Store-in-Store' formats inside our Sainsbury’s stores. You will work closely with the Sainsbury’s Store Manager to create and lead a high performing team, consistently driving excellent standards and generating great results. You’ll also coach your colleagues to anticipate and accommodate the different needs of our customers, creating a culture where everyone is working and winning as one team.
You will be a role model for diversity and inclusion, encouraging all colleagues to be themselves at work, be a champion of our values, never missing an opportunity to recognise great performance and cheer on progress.
You will already have retail management experience and clear leadership ability, with great commercial awareness. You’ll be able to comfortably use technology as part of your role and use your strong prioritisation and planning skills to deliver targets and meet customer and colleague needs. You’ll need to be an inspirational and engaging communicator, able to deliver feedback, have challenging conversations, and manage performance fairly and consistently.
As the retail world evolves, you’ll embrace change and make things happen at pace. We’ll expect you to champion new technology and ways of working, ensuring your store really performs and serves as a safe, welcoming environment for all.
As part of the Sainsbury’s group, the career possibilities here are unparalleled, meaning that we can help you to drive your development in line with your own aspirations.
In addition to a competitive salary and an exciting working environment, other benefits include:
Holiday allowance which starts at 24 days per year (increasing with service)
Share save scheme
Discretionary annual bonus
Colleague discount in Argos, Habitat and Sainsbury’s
Company pension scheme.
