About the role
Sense has an exciting opportunity to be able to offer apprenticeships in our thriving trading department. Here, you will gain the practical skills and experience to compliment the knowledge you will gain from working towards a Level 3 qualification. With stretch and growth opportunities available to the right individuals, you will acquire the skills to develop a successful career in retail.
We are looking for reliable and motivated individuals to join our team in our Doncaster store, as an Apprentice Shop Manager. This is a full time role, working 37.5 hours per week.
You will lead and support a small, enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers. This will be a hands-on role involving the selection, pricing and presentation of donated stock and, of course, customer service. You will be responsible for generating income by maximising sales, controlling costs and encouraging your local community to donate saleable items.
As an ambassador of Sense, you will raise vital funds for the charity and promote who we are and what we do to the members of your local community. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people who find it difficult to communicate and connect with the world, especially those with sensory impairments.
Our successful applicants will need to be self-motivated, creative and positively committed to working in charity retail. You will be able to provide excellent customer service and motivate a team to do the same. You'll have an eye for detail and will ensure a safe, clean and inviting environment for customers, staff and volunteers.
This position requires the applicant to be willing to work Bank Holidays and weekends as required.

Working at Sense can be incredibly rewarding; we offer the opportunity to work in a large, diverse and successful charity where people can develop their skills, knowledge and careers in a supportive and flexible environment. In addition we have excellent training and development, the opportunity for you to join our Group Personal Pension scheme and a generous annual leave entitlement.
