Our client is one of Ireland’s most successful retailers, they offer a huge range of products sourced, locally across the U.K., Ireland and Europe. Their commitment to first class customer care and sustainability is paramount to what they do and, they are widely recognised as a top employer, offering a host of employee benefits and, career development opportunities.
Making sure a group of stores operate efficiently and generates maximum turnover is a big, big responsibility, so we make no apology for being highly selective in choosing the right person.
We are looking for up-for it, ahead-of-the-game, do-it-better retail professionals who have gained proven experience in a similar role.

It’s about strategic-thinking, bar-raising, problem-solving managers who can inspire everyone to be high achievers. If you’ve got it, you’ll get loads back, fast-tracked with a great package and every opportunity to develop your management abilities in a visible role with a keep-it-simple, fast-growing, retail-changing business.
