Save The Children

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.

Where you come in:

In this full-time permanent position, based in our Coffs Harbour op shop, you will be responsible for growing and developing the business. You will lead by example to drive sales and achieve KPI targets, as well as building and nurturing a co-operative group of individuals who together form a vibrant and enthusiastic team. You will be an integral part of our Retail team and report to our Area Manager.

You will make an impact by:

  • Leading your diverse team of volunteers to deliver high levels of customer service and achieve store targets
