Job Purpose

Working across our two stores, Circle Collective are looking for a retail supervisor with a proven track-record of delivering training to staff. Your role will include delivering customer service workshops and on-the-job training to young people on our Get Employed programme. We have over 120 young people come through our stores every year, and you must be comfortable delivering regular training to ensure our trainees reach the high standards we set in retail, pre-retail and customer service. You will also be an experienced retail supervisor, with responsibility for other staff on the shop floor when you are in our stores.

  • You will have experience of training staff in a retail environment
  • You will enjoy working with young people and be passionate about fashion, street wear and delivering excellent customer service
  • You must be willing to travel to both our Hackney and Lewisham stores
  • As you will be working as part of a small closely-knit team, you will need excellent communication skills and an organised approach to ensure you are able to balance the commercial needs of the shop with training young people. You will need to be a self-starter and able to work independently to understand where the gaps in our trainees' knowledge are.
