Job Introduction

We are currently recruiting for a Department Manager to join the Womenswear team in our Trafford store. This is a temporary role for 9 months to cover a maternity leave.

Know The Role

At Selfridges, it takes more than good figures to make a successful department. In this key role, you’ll make sure your area excels in every sense – not just sales, profit and costs, but team performance, customer service, stock and displays. In fact, you’ll look upon your department as your own personal business and take pride in its achievements. Ultimately, your aim will be to create an extraordinary experience for customers and your team. That means upholding high standards; inspiring your people; and putting our values front and centre. With your flexible, hands-on management style, your department will be an example for the rest of the business.

Leading amazing teams across the store with the most exciting and unique products , you will report directly into the Sales Manager and manage a team of Brand Specialists, Sales Associates and Sales Consultants.

Know What We're Looking For

An experienced retail manager, you can lead teams in fast-moving, high sales/volume business. You’re not afraid to join your people on the shop floor and you’re passionate about customer service. In fact, you insist on high standards all-round and combine this with pin-sharp commercial acumen. A role model for your team, you’ll show everyone what a great department looks like.

Some weekend working is essential, but as an experienced professional, you’ll understand and be flexible.
