Are you a Store Manager, Operations Manager, Trading Manager, Deputy Manager or Assistant Manager looking for your next step? Are you a dynamic leader ready to take your retail career to the next level? Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment and have a track record of driving exceptional store standards and sales growth? Well, look no further...

We're looking for a Store Manager to join our store team in Bicester, Oxfordshire!

About the Role

Leading your management team & colleagues in store, you’ll run your store like it’s your own business - overseeing all aspects of your store’s operations from stock to recruitment. You’ll have the freedom to think for yourself, using your commercial knowledge to maximise sales potential in your store.

We don’t have office managers at B&M – our store managers are out there on the floor, getting stuck in and playing a key part in the successful operation of your store! Whether it’s processing deliveries, assisting customers, supporting with floor moves or managing compliance, you’ll be a hands-on leader! You’ll work closely with your team of colleagues, supervisors & managers, driving them to achieve their best. And you'll coach and inspire them to reach their full potential… they could be a manager of the future with your guidance!

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 us means being 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 you could play a key part in it!

Your Progression

Looking to progress in your role? We love allowing our people to grow, and the sky's the limit for our store managers at B&M. 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.

There is a dedicated step-up programme for those of you looking for your next step – whether that be progression upwards to a regional role, or a sideways move across to another area of the business. If you’re looking to progress, we want you to get there!

What We Offer:

  • Competitive Package: Enjoy a competitive salary with a rewarding annual bonus potential
  • Clear Career Path: We offer 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.
  • Store Discounts: Take advantage of a 10% store discount across all our stores (including Heron), with regular double discount events
  • Annual Leave: Receive up to 33 days of annual leave
  • Pension Plan: Participate in our contributable pension scheme.
  • Exclusive Benefits: Access 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 an Engaging Leader: Lead your store with passion, setting the pace, and showcasing excellent customer service & commerciality
  • Embrace Pace: You’ll have experience of working within a fast-paced environment, and dealing with high volumes of stock/product
  • Achieve Excellence: Drive sales growth, maintain outstanding store standards, and consistently exceed KPIs within your store
  • Develop 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 and being flexible and reactive is key
  • Love Retail: Demonstrate a true passion for retail, bringing your commercial knowledge to your team & store
  • Drive Compliance: Consistently drive compliance within your store, whether it be through stocktakes, health & safety or people processes

What You'll Need:

  • Store Management experience within a fast-paced and high turnover Retail environment
  • Experience of managing & developing medium to large sized teams
  • A history of successfully working towards & achieving 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 run your own B&M store, we'd love to hear from you!
