About the role

As Bookshop Team Leader, Bookshop you will be responsible for all aspects of the Amnesty Bookshop on Sydney Street in Brighton, ensuring that it is consistently inviting to customers, well-stocked, well-staffed and safe. This includes recruiting, guiding and inspiring a 20+ strong volunteer team, maximising the value from donations, creating enticing displays and dealing with problems as they arise. Accountable for the shop performance, you will use your initiative, and work closely with the Regional Manager, to seek ways to grow sales and profit, reach a wider audience, and make the shop even more successful.

The role may be for you if:
You have experience of successfully working in a fast-paced environment, juggling a very busy and varied workload. Plus, you enjoy a high degree of autonomy in your work and manage your time effectively to make sound decisions efficiently. Used to working with performance targets, you are commercial and creative in finding ways to succeed. You have experience of recruiting, managing and training a team of staff and or volunteers, and enjoy creating a strong team. You are highly organised and can develop and maintain procedures and processes in a work setting. And of course, you have a good understanding and enjoyment of books.

Your strong communication, time management, commercial, and customer service skills, plus your natural resilience and drive, will allow you to thrive in this exciting role.
