St Gemma’s Hospice is the largest hospice in Yorkshire and one of the largest in the UK. The Hospice provides expert palliative and end of life care, in a quality environment, for thousands of local people each year. It’s a prominent and respected charity at the heart of the local community with a large range of specialist services to support patients, their families and friends.
Working for St Gemma’s can offer a rewarding career in a friendly environment. Over 250 staff across a 4 acre site, 23 Charity Shops and a Retail Hub work together to ensure that patients and their families have the best possible experience and receive the highest quality of care.
We are looking to strengthen our Deputy Shop Manager team to help cover annual leave, sickness and occasional days on a casual “as and when required” basis, sometimes at fairly short notice.
Responsibilities will include managing a team of dedicated volunteers, stock donations and the day to day running of a busy St Gemma’s charity shop to achieve sales targets.
Retail experience and management/supervisory experience of staff/volunteers is essential as are good communication skills and experience of dealing with the public.
