Emmaus Brighton & Hove is now looking to recruit an experienced retail manager to run its exciting clothing store Outfit@Emmaus. This business is one of seven social enterprises run by staff, Companions, and volunteers at Emmaus Brighton & Hove.
Outfit@Emmaus is way more than a secondhand clothing store. Alongside the vast array of clothing and accessories, vintage goods and designer labels on sale every day, we will be hosting our unique programme of talks, workshops and fashion shows in partnership with lovers of make do and mend, re-use, upcycling, and repurposing.
Our mission is to help raise awareness of ethical practice and sustainability in and around fashion and the clothing we buy and use daily, whilst saving tonnes of perfectly good textiles from going to landfill.
We are seeking someone who is not only a competent retail manager with a real passion for fashion, but who is also knowledgeable about trends, uses social media to spot influencers and what’s hot – someone who lives and breathes fashion with an awareness of its ethical credentials. You will be able to demonstrate great customer service skills, can generate substantial income from the sale of secondhand clothing and accessories, and create a clothes shopping experience like no other in the charity sector.
You will work in conjunction with the Business Manager and Retail Operations Manager to lead, supervise and train a team of Companions and volunteers who are allocated to working in this retail business.
This is a full-time role, and you will work 37.5 hours over 5 days per week. Saturdays are included.
