Temporary Maternity Cover (10 months) - Full time

We are Chester Zoo, and for over 80 years we've been a leading conservation and education charity, and an amazing, award-winning visitor attraction.

We're also a team of passionate, talented, enthusiastic and expert people, doing everything we can to keep the zoo going, from feeding the animals to discovering new conservation ideas, and giving our 1.9 million visitors an inspirational day out. We work hard because we love animals, we care about nature, we love Chester Zoo and we want to be the best zoo in the world!

If you think you can help us to achieve that, then we'd love to hear from you.

We are currently recruiting for a temporary Retail Coordinator to cover a period of maternity leave who will effectively support the Retail Management team on a daily basis.

You will have world class standards of customer service, and will be responsible for shop floor or storeroom support. This will include motivating and mentoring the Retail Assistants, deploying our daily rotas to meet demand, coordinating stock movements and reacting quickly to the needs of our guests in order to meet commercial goals. This is a responsible role for an individual with a retail background and excellent people skills.

To be successful in this role, you will be required to assist in the front line running of the retail department, deputise in the absence of the Supervisor, demonstrate a "can do attitude", show pride in your work, have the drive and commitment to work within a team and help to ensure the department reaches its goals.

The ideal candidate will have:

* Experience of high volume retail or a visitor attraction environment.
* Commitment to delivering the highest standards of customer service.
* The people skills and experience to coordinate and motivate large teams, with an eye for amazing attention to detail.
* Effective communication skills - both verbal and written.
* Experience in using EPOS tills and cash handling, including cashing up and reconciliations.
* Have a commercial flair and a creative eye to support our supervisors with visual merchandising and layout decisions.

The Zoo welcomes 1.5 million visitors per year and our shops are very busy. It is therefore important that you have worked in a fast paced retail outlet and that you are able to thrive working under pressure.

Hours of work will be 40 hours per week worked on a 5 days out of 7 roster system which will include weekends and bank holidays. You will be required to be flexible and will be expected to work more hours during busy periods. The hours of work will vary and will include early mornings and evening work on a rota basis when required.

The salary for this role is £18,384.92 per annum pro rata and in addition we offer a range of amazing benefits which can be found on the Chester Zoo careers page.
