Being at the frontline of all we do is an exciting place to be! Whether you join us as a branch manager or as a deputy manager, you’ll provide leadership that will ensure we reach our goal of ensuring our customers have a great experience every time they visit your store.
- Being a leader means being innovative, motivational and challenging
This one means getting people to think differently and find new ways of doing things that have worked well in the past too. From our fashion academy to our concept stores, every innovation starts off with an idea that’s in someone’s head. And it’s the managers’ job to coax it out.
The best leaders are always devoted to their team’s development. It’s like a family thing, where you’re really proud to watch them grow, helping every last team member celebrate their successes – and when they’re not so successful, making sure they see it as a learning experience.
It’s down to our managers to get our teams doing everything the best they can, every day. After all, that’s how we get real job satisfaction. But it’s important to balance challenge with encouragement – to create a workplace where challenge and support go hand in hand.
- Being a great leader is also all about ensuring our teams are commercial, passionate and knowledgeable…
As someone who’s commercially savvy, you’ll run your business as if it’s your own. And you’ll pass this way of thinking onto your teams too. It’s important everyone understands the part they play in the business.
Your passion for fashion and everything that goes with it will come through in the way you talk to your teams about your business; encouraging involvement, personal development and ways of doing things that make everyone feel valued.
As the old saying goes, ‘knowledge is power’. Your teams really will be empowered by knowing the latest about our business. That’s why it’s so important to get them digging for information whenever and wherever they can.
