You will be responsible for running your own store – it is, essentially, your own business that you are managing. You will optimise its financial success by managing sales performance, implementing in-store promotions and leading your team to deliver operational excellence and a first-class customer service experience. It’s a tough job, but it’s rewarding too. You will be kept busy, you will have a lot of fun, and you’ll bond and grow with a dedicated team. This is a hands-on role: you will be expected to have an active presence on the shop floor, demonstrating enthusiasm, a driven work ethic and a dedication to customer service. If you think you’re up for the challenge, apply now.
What you’ll need
Charisma, managerial expertise and commercial acumen. Our retail store managers need to have a wide skillset to meet the demands of this varied role: we need a salesperson, a motivator, a leader, a logistics expert and a shrewd decision-maker.
You should have management experience – ideally in retail or hospitality. You will understand profits, know how to handle a budget and have a firm grasp on health and safety issues. You should also have a clear, purposeful leadership style that encourages your team to exceed sales targets and always deliver exceptional customer service.
What you’ll get in return
As well as your salary, you will be entitled to 23 days’ annual leave, rising to 25 days with service. You’re likely to receive a bonus worth up to 10% of your salary. You can also look forward to the kinds of benefits that you’d expect from a well-known global brand: access to private healthcare, a pension scheme, a share save scheme (so you can own a part of BP), a fuel card to make savings on petrol and a 15% discount in-store. You’ll also enjoy half-price meals and free hot drinks from the Wild Bean Café while on duty. And, you’ll have the security and prospects that come with working for an expanding, global business.
That’s not all: you will also be given the training and support required to develop your management potential and excel within BP. And wherever you’re based, a job in BP Retail is your opportunity to join a team of dedicated, friendly and respectful individuals all with one common goal – to provide the best possible customer service.
