We're Hiring : Retail Store Manager

Our Story
Since 2009, Shoes of Prey has been offering woman (and some men) all around the world, the opportunity to design their own shoes. Our vision is to democratise fashion by creating a world where anyone can be their own designer and get exactly what they want.

In early 2013, we ventured into offline retail, opening our first ever award winning boutique in David Jones, Elizabeth Street. The store has grown incredibly since then and now we are excited to announce that we will be opening our second boutique at Bondi Junction Westfield.

Shoes of Prey Retail Store Manager
We’re looking for two amazing retail store managers who share our passion for retail and delivering incredible customer experiences. We’re offering one full-time position at our David Jones boutique, Elizabeth Street, and one full-time position at our new store at Westfield, Bondi Junction.
We need energetic people who are ready to work hard and help take our company to the next level. You’ll be business savvy with a drive to consistently hit sales targets and beat them. You and your team provide incredible customer service to every single customer, and the store regularly receives testimonials from customers to that effect.

You’ll be working closely with our offline retail manager, Lydia, as well as being responsible for managing your own store team.

Some of the key day-to-day activities:
As a retail store manager in one of our two stores, you’ll be responsible for everything that happens within your store.
  • Achieving sales targets and KPIs
  • Holding regular 1:1s with your team
  • Managing all rostering
  • Implementing marketing initiatives
  • Developing our current processes as well as creating new ones
  • Providing incredible customer service
  • Coaching all staff to achieve their personal KPIs

To be successful in this role and be considered an A-player on the Shoes of Prey team, you’ll be addressing the following:

  1. The Shoes of Prey culture code comes naturally to you. People on the team love spending time with you and are fighting to be able to work closely with you.
  2. Passionately creating happiness is in your approach to everything customer related.
  3. You’ve created, implemented and improved store processes.
  4. The store sales have gone off the chart since you took over and you have been instrumental in helping us continue to grow the offline sector of the business.

What are we looking for?
Your work experience clearly reflects the following:
  • You have at least 1 year managerial experience in a similar environment
  • Passion for retail and customer service
  • Ability to achieve KPIs and aggressive start up sales targets
  • As a manager, you’re an incredible coach and your reports learn a lot from you
  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit
  • You’re organised and able to manage a busy store successfully
