Retail Manager - Flexible working
SODA is a new retail company for innovative technology products, aimed mostly at women. We're here to cut through the confusion and show you what's good and what's not when it comes to tech.
We have a shop on the lower ground floor at Selfridges and a website, both of which curate the best smart products on the market. Stuff that's useful and innovative and that won't end up in the tangled wire drawer.
Stuff like the Dodow that helps you get back to sleep when you wake at 4 am (it's like a breathing guru on your bedside table), or the Chipolo that lets your phone and your keys find each other when they get lost... or hide down the sofa. But not all our products are app-enabled or even very techy. We love beautifully designed goods that will add something to your life too. Like a matt pastel steel bottle that can keep your favourite coffee hot for up to 12 hours. And your favourite cold drink cold for 24 hours.
Many of our suppliers believe in a sustainable business model that helps local communities and avoids waste.
We also publish a short weekly newsletter that lands in your inbox every Sunday morning so you can keep in touch with tomorrow's world - without bothering about all the boring stuff.
Come and see us in Selfridges soon. We have sweets!
We are looking for a self-motivated store manager to oversee a small team of retail staff at our store in Selfridges. The ideal candidate would have at least ten years experience in retail and might be looking to get back into this dynamic, fast-moving sector of the economy after a career break. We are willing to be flexible about hours in exchange for a dynamic manager who will lead and motivate the selling team, exact sales results, keep the store looking fabulous and ensure customers have a memorable Soda experience.
The store manager will liaise closely with our Soda office in King's Cross as well as the team working for Selfridges. This is an opportunity for a more mature retail candidate to bring his or her experience to a young company looking to expand.
