Based: Gibbs & Dandy St Ives
Salary: £28,000 – 34,000, depending on experience
Gibbs & Dandy – National Merchant of the Year 2018 & 2019 / “One to Watch” Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work for 2019
As an Assistant Branch Manager, you’ll support the Branch Manager in leading and driving the performance of your branch. You’ll get involved in the site operations, sales and building customer relationships, whilst ensuring the safety, culture and development of the team. This role is not for the faint hearted, as you will balance people, operational, administration and sales responsibilities on a daily basis. However, for those up for the challenge, the role is an exciting and rewarding opportunity!
Working for Gibbs & Dandy will mean you have no two days the same. You will have the opportunity to support and advise customers on our extensive products and service range - no matter how big or small their project is! You will take pride in being an integral part of the Gibbs & Dandy mission to be ‘The Most Trusted Merchant in Town’
We’ve been in the industry for 175 years so we can proudly say we know a thing or two about providing our customers with the tools and materials they need to complete their building projects.
The Gibbs & Dandy team are a family; we value, respect and occasionally have the odd joke at the expense of each other – but what family doesn’t? It’s what makes us who we are – a close knit team on a mission. But we couldn’t give our customers a service they can trust without our people, and this is where you step in.
You’ll join Gibbs & Dandy St Ives. This branch is a well-established and busy branch with a friendly team of thirteen who work hard to offer a great service and excellent product knowledge. The branch has a sales office, warehouse, shop & counter, showroom and manages two customer delivery vehicles.
So, what are we looking for?
· Experience of successfully supervising, supporting and coaching a team
· A curious and proactive approach to sales
· An understanding of branch operations
· The ability to build strong relationships, internally and externally
· Excellent time management skills
· A genuine enthusiasm for customer service and team engagement
We are an inclusive employer and keen to hire talented people regardless of their background, abilities, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, what football team you support, taste in music, fashion sense or anything else that makes you, you!
We believe that working in a diverse business can be more enjoyable, teams can be more innovative, and make better decisions. We already employ many fantastic people from diverse backgrounds, but we still want to do more.
So, we are on a mission to make Saint-Gobain inclusive and accessible to all, with role models for you to look up to and learn from, no matter who you are!
