Hours to be worked – Mondays and Saturdays 9.45am to 5.15pm with a half hour unpaid lunch break ie. 7 hours per day so that the shop opens from 10am to 5pm each day. Post also needs to cover for annual/sickness leave of the Manager as and when requested.Our shop is based at 289 Lower Addiscombe Road, Addiscombe, CR0 6RE. The purpose of our shop is to raise funds for Mind in Croydon, a busy local charity that has been running for 50 years. This very important role is to support the Manager’s efforts in maximising profits as well as keeping the shop clean, tidy and attractive to customers. Donations come in on a regular basis and you would also be required to deal with these. You would in addition be responsible on the days you are in, for the volunteers who help us to keep the shop productive as well calling up replacements to cover for times they cannot attend either on your days, or the Manager’s days. Customers can be challenging at times and the Shop Assistant will be solely in control on the days they work and will have to deal with any issues which might be raised. This is however a rewarding role. In a newly refurbished shop on a busy high street, we have become part of the community and as a local charity, all the funds you raise go to help our clients in Croydon. Overall strategy decisions, decisions on displays, methods of sorting and storing of goods etc will all be decided by the Manager and your role will be to carry out the strategy they have devised and support them in any way you can.
