Blue Cross are one of the UK’s leading animal welfare organisations for animals. We support sick, injured and homeless pets and care for more than 40,000 animals every year through our rehoming, veterinary and education programmes.

What is the role?
Come and join our great Blue Cross retail team which play a vital role in raising money to help our pets.
Your role will be to work alongside the Group Head of Fundraising and Retail and Retail Operations Manager to research and locate potential shops that can be added to the retail estate.

The role will include visiting potential sites and completing a new shop checklist and reviewing each town to check its viability to become one of our Blue Cross charity shops. You will also work alongside other teams within Blue Cross to support this decision making such as our Finance and Estates team and our shop opening team.

You will be a self-motivated, focused individual, who can work alone and within a team. A lot of time will be spent travelling between highlighted towns and you will need to be comfortable with that. There will be a requirement to use your own car with expenses paid and if appropriate accommodation costs also covered.

This is a permanent part-time role working 21 hours per week, actual work days can be discussed. Due, to the nature of the work of Blue Cross, and this post, it will be necessary to exceed these hours when the work load demands.

If you excel in an environment where you can see the difference you make every day then this is the role for you. Interested? Then apply and lets work together to see if this is the role for you.

To apply for this role, all candidates must complete the online application process.
