About the Role

Do you want to be part of the management team in a large retail store which is truly unique within it’s sector? Do you have the drive and passion to help lead and motivate your store team to deliver the company mission of ‘inspiring everyone to get outdoors for less – and love it as much as we do’? Our Department Managers create an exceptional customer service culture by ensuring the Store Colleagues deliver excellent service and exceed customer expectations. We will give you the tools you need to be able to empower you and your team to drive a sales culture in which our customers are confident they are purchasing what they need to get the most from their adventure!

About You

As our business is incredibly fast paced, we look for Department Managers with a proven track record of having a ‘hands on’ approach.

You should have a pro-active nature when it comes to solving problems as you will be the most senior person in store on most of your shifts and the ability to challenge the accepted way of doing things when you see improvements can be made.

Our Department Managers are brand ambassadors for GO, who grow the retail brand in the local community by engaging with groups and schools.
