Area Manager - Nationwide Opportunities

The primary aim of this role is to inspire, lead and coach your retail team to deliver on all areas of Halfords strategy and our operational retail plan - namely: 'Great Place to work', 'Shops to be proud of', 'WOW our Customers', and 'Services that make us the best'. An average area has 20 - 24 retail stores and around 300 - 400 colleagues.

You will have a proven track record of being a visible Area Manager with a great eye for detail along with the passion and enthusiasm to lead from the front - spending time coaching your people as opposed to managing them remotely. You will possess superb commercial skills and drive to deliver profitable results through the effective leadership and retention of your store colleagues whilst ensuring business targets are being met, and ideally, surpassed.

You will ideally come from a background of managing a number of retail teams spread over a large geographical area within a business where you get involved in every aspect from recruiting, engaging, motivating & developing your team, to influencing business strategy and driving great results. You will be an inspirational leader who will bring out the strengths in others and give your colleagues the encouragement they need to succeed and deliver 'best in class' service to our customers. You will also enjoy working commercially in a fast-paced environment and will be an excellent communicator.

A passion for our products or experience of working within a customer service focussed environment would be a great advantage. Due to the nature of this role a full, valid UK driving licence is required.

If you want to be part of a business that's really going places, we'd love to hear from you.

Salary competitive with company car, 30 days annual leave, bonus scheme (up to 30%), pension, Sharesave scheme, 25% colleague discount across retail and our Autocentres.
