We're looking for a Deputy Store Manager to join our store team in Stowmarket, Suffolk! 

About the Role

Reporting to the Store Manager, you’ll be a hands-on team player who role models the B&M way of working to your team! You’ll support in delivering fantastic store standards every day and will work closely with your Store Manager to maximise the performance of your store. You’ll love helping to run & lead your store like it’s your own business, supporting with all store operations from stock to recruitment.

When your Store Manager isn’t around, it’s down to you! You’ll take charge of your store and drive your team to deliver a fantastic result, day in & day out! Our managers at B&M aren’t office managers – as a Deputy Store Manager, you're out there on the floor with your team, coaching and inspiring them to reach their full potential. You’ll work shoulder to shoulder with your team, setting the pace & leading by example!

Why B&M?

At B&M, we're not just any retailer. We're one of the fastest-growing in the UK, with over 720 stores and an exciting plan for new openings in 2024. Joining B&M means you can be a part of an extraordinary journey. But it's not just our rapid expansion that sets us apart; it's our unwavering commitment to our people. Our growth is huge and is showing no signs of slowing down…and with that, your possibilities are endless!

Your Development

Looking to progress in your role? We love allowing our people to grow at B&M, and the sky's the limit for you as a Deputy Store Manager. We remain committed to developing our team and providing opportunities to everyone at all levels. In fact, over 75% of our retail managers are home grown, so your career development comes as standard! Our commitment to internal succession is something we’re extremely proud of. With our dedicated step-up programmes, you could be on the path to having your own store before you know it!

What We Offer:

  • Competitive Package: Competitive salary with a rewarding annual bonus potential
  • Clear Career Path: Job stability and a clear path for career progression. At B&M, your growth matters
  • Training and Development: Benefit from extensive on-the-job training and internal development opportunities

  • Pension Plan: Participate in a contributable pension scheme
  • Exclusive Benefits: Exclusive colleague benefits, including discounts for retailers, hospitality, and more
  • Wellbeing Support: Our Employee Assistant Programme provides wellbeing support & guidance to all B&M colleagues

To Be Successful, You Will:

  • Be a Supportive Leader: Assist your Store Manager in running your store with passion, leading by example and driving a strong sense of teamwork
  • Embrace Pace: You’ll have experience working in a fast-paced environment and working with large volumes of stock/product
  • Set the Standard: Help to maintain exceptional store standards and consistently deliver KPIs – and you’ll have a history of achieving this in your current or previous role(s) 
  • Coach a Winning Team: You’ll love developing your team – working with them to identify and nurture talent & train them to achieve success!
  • Welcome Challenges: Be hands-on and resilient – no 2 days are the same with B&M, and being adaptable and reactive is key
  • Love Retail: Demonstrate a passion for retail and for your role, bringing your commercial knowledge to your team & store
  • Have ambition: If you’re looking to run a store of your own in future and have the drive to progress your career, we’ll support you to get there!

What You'll Need:

  • Experience managing medium to large sized teams in a fast-paced & high turnover environment
  • A history of working towards & successfully delivering KPI’s
  • Flexibility to work a range of hours, including weekends & bank holidays

Experience within an FMCG/big box environment is desirable, but not essential. If you feel you’ve got the people, organisational and commercial skills to successfully assist in running your own store, we want to hear from you!

Do you think this sounds like the ideal role for you? And are you ready to excel your career? Don't miss out – apply today and become part of the B&M success story!
