Assistant Manager

Website Edinburgh Bicycle Co operative

Full time, permanent position

Starting Salary £16,500 – £17,500 per annum (subject to experience)

Excellent Staff Discount Scheme

Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op is a long established, respected independent bike retailer. Founded in 1977, we operate 5 retail outlets across Scotland and the North of England as well as an ecommerce operation supported by a large warehouse/ distribution centre on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

An exciting opportunity has come up in our Newcastle branch for the role of an Assistant Manager and we are inviting candidates to apply.  

Based at our store in Byker, you’ll report directly to the Newcastle Branch Manager and will work closely with him, and the Deputy Manager, in all aspects of the running of the branch and most importantly ensuring sales targets are met.

Our goal is to be the most trusted bicycle retailer in the UK, not to be the biggest. As an employee owned business service quality and the customer are at the heart of what we do. The Newcastle store has a proven reputation for exceptional service quality and advice. 

It is essential that you are able to demonstrate strong administrative, leadership and motivational skills and understanding, as well as a highly developed sense of customer service. Managing customer & staff expectations while maximising the sales opportunity is critical to the role. 

You must be an effective time-manager and a pragmatic problem solver.   You’ll be expected to place great emphasis on service quality and productivity, whilst paying attention to detail and ‘completing / finishing’. Finally, the candidate should have the drive and motivation to identify, act on and deliver sales opportunities. 

If you are interested in joining our management team in Newcastle and would like details on how to apply, please request an application pack quoting the reference Newcastle AM to jobs@edinburghbicycle.com

Closing date: 5pm Friday 22nd November 2019

To apply for this job email your details to jobs@edinburghbicycle.com.
