Field Management

In these key area manager roles, you’ll lead a region of over 45 High Street stores.

To keep our network of stores performing, we rely on talented Regional Business Managers (RBMs).

As an RBM you’ll maximise sales and profitability, thinking about the particular challenges each store faces – its size, location and the expertise of its team. Your on-going support will help the store hit a range of critical targets, covering finances, customer service and standards. This takes a tremendous amount of analysis – spotting trends, interpreting data and looking for improvements.

At the same time, you must be adept at influencing people – motivating managers, developing teams and liaising with other regional teams and Head Office functions. All making you an expert at multi-tasking!

Focused on maximising profitability, you’ll look after all the stores in the region, helping them deliver targets in line with the High Street Stores’ Operating Plan. It’s important that you leverage the knowledge of your more experienced managers, helping them to act as regional champions.

You’ll keep abreast of things across the network with regular voice conferences, as well as travelling from store to store to see things first hand. As an RBM, it will be down to you to create a strategy, set expectations and monitor performance, as well as leading store initiatives and being accountable for trading losses.

This side of the High Street business requires sharp commercial thinkers who can interpret the market quickly. Senior managers who can analyse, influence and deliver results through others.
