Assistant Store Manager
A big Company that feels small
Most jobs require you to make compromises. Often you have to weigh up things like whether you want the security of a big, established company, or the close knit family feel of a small one. But at Big Yellow, you don't have to choose. We pride ourselves on making sure every employee, in every store, feels at home, from their first day with us and throughout the rest of their career.
A career as individual as you are
At Big Yellow, we put you before your experience. So, if we choose you, it's for your personality and passion, not just your past jobs. Why? Because every day at Big Yellow is different and you'll be dealing with people facing a range of unique, exciting or stressful times. So we look for people with a human touch and the enthusiasm to approach every day as a new one and in return you get a unique career where you're valued for being you.
The opportunity to make a big impact
You will be enthused about supporting the Store Manager in all aspects of running your store, in order to grow and develop your business. You'll be specifically involved in maximising store profitability through driving sales, achieving KPI's, and providing the highest standards of customer service. You will also be involved with proposing ideas for local marketing, dealing with customer administration and ensuring all store standards are maintained.
You will need to have management experience at a similar level in the retail or sales sectors and demonstrate that you are both a strong team player as well as being able to work on your own initiative. We are looking for confident and enthusiastic people with a great attitude and ability to learn. At Big Yellow, we love a big personality!
You will need to be flexible to work 40 hours per week over 5 out of 7 days to cover the following opening hours
Monday to Friday: 8.00 am to 6.00 pm
Saturday: 9.00 am to 6.00 pm
Sunday: 10.00 am to 4.00 pm
Ideally, you'll be located within 30 minutes travelling time of the store.
A big company that nails the little things
We believe you can tell a lot about a company by the little things we do for our staff - the things that make life whether it be inside or outside of work, so much better for everyone who works for us. Like a day off on your birthday, vouchers to recognise personal events such as engagements, weddings and births, a Christmas party and plenty of other social events and time off to volunteer with our charity partners through the Big Yellow Foundation. These are the little ways we try to show our staff how much we value them every day.

- Competitive rates of pay, reviewed on an annual basis.
- Excellent bonus calculated against operational and sales targets.
- WOW awards for delivering great customer service.
- Holiday entitlement increasing with service.
