Retail Floor Manager Jobs

Retail Floor Managers (or Duty mangers, Section Managers, Department Managers) play an extremely important function in ensuring the financial and non-financial success of a retail store or department. Retail Floor Managers are responsible for the day-to-day management and operation of a store or department in line with the company's overall policy.

Retail Managers focus on getting the most out of a store or department. Financially, they need to ensure that the store or department is maximising profitability and meeting, and hopefully exceeding, commercial targets. Non-financially, Retail Floor Managers manage everything from buying and stock control to marketing, administration, logistics, customer service, finance and human resources.

The working hours for this role are varied and it may require you to work weekends. At peak times such as Christmas working hours can expect to rise to more than 40 hours a week.

The salary for a Retail Manager depends on their experience and the size of the store they are managing. Typically they range from £20,000 to £30,000 but can reach up to £60,000.
