The Newlands Mary Potter Hospice Shop is currently searching for an experienced and multi-talented Store Manager to work within our retail team.

You will enjoy huge variety in this role; not only interacting with the amazing people who donate goods to our stores, you will also lead, coach and inspire the volunteers who make up the majority of our retail workforce, making the best use of their many and varied talents.
