Our Regional Managers lead from the front, planning the strategic direction for shops in their area, recognising opportunities for developing our estate and supporting and mentoring our cluster managers and their teams. You’ll be confident making bold decisions and taking action if things are not working; you'll be proactive, driven and commercially aware.

You’ll be commercially astute, able to demonstrate excellent communication and inter-personal skills and work with a broad mix of people.
You will pro-actively recruit, train & retain the cluster and store manager team who'll look to you for leadership and guidance.
In an often pressured and changing environment, you’ll be able to prioritise tasks, delegate work and ensure that strong standards of merchandising and stock processing are followed consistently across the stores.
