Mind: Retail Area/Regional Manager (West Midlands)
We are Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. For over 50 years Mind Charity Shops have been a welcome fixture on our high streets and in our communities helping to raise vital funds to ensure that everyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support. Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. Mind won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.
You are an experienced leader in retail; fashion, multi-site or a combination of both. A role model with a proven track record of delivering results, looking for a step up, a new challenge, a new landscape.
This role will offer you the autonomy to challenge the status quo, to think creatively of new ways to improve your business.
It offers a diverse workplace that will engage you in;
• New shop acquisition/ openings
• Creating new methods of working
• True P&L accountability
• Input into buying new merchandise
• Training and development, limited only by your imagination.
We are looking for individuals who want to be part of a social movement for change, who want to make a difference in the world and give something back. We are looking for individuals who have the confidence to innovate, the courage to challenge but the empathy and warmth to grow and nurture teams. Every day is different in Mind Retail. We want people who can keep up.
