Shop Assistant Required
£18,364 per annum whole time equivalent pro-rated downwards to
reflect that this is a part-time post of 14 hours per week (Grade 2,
Scale point 21 on the Mind salary scale). 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
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.
You will need to be extremely reliable and flexible in order to
cover for any sickness/holiday absence of the Manager. Overtime will be
payable for extra days worked.
Staff benefits include an auto-enrolment pension scheme, 28 days
holiday per annum (rising to 33 after 5 years) pro-rated downwards to
reflect that this is a part-time role, and the opportunity to work for a
‘family friendly’ organisation.
All posts may be subject to enhanced DBS checks. Application packs
are available from The Human Resources Manager, Mind in Croydon Ltd, 26
Pampisford Road, Purley, Surrey CR8 2NE or firstname.lastname@example.org
