Department Manager - [Mid-Atlantic] You will own a department, and focus on maximizing its sales, inventory and standards. Department Managers have the power to impact the business daily, by managing inventory, moving product in accordance with customer demand and by being commercial (meaning that you'll know what is trending and thus order your merchandise daily to drive sales). You will keep an eye on the local market to maintain a competitive advantage in price, product, and shopping experience. As the leader of your department, you will hire, train, coach and motivate a team of Retail Assistants and Supervisors. This is crucial to ensuring your department delivers an exceptional shopping experience for every customer and a positive work environment for every colleague. With our significant growth plans, we are looking for leaders to join us in this location, who are open & willing to move to other Primark locations to further their career (ie, when successful in the promotion process that would mean transferring to another store within the geographical area). We're looking for a fashion-loving person with at least 2 years of retail management and fashion related experience with strong commercial acumen. You'll need to be nimble and adaptable since we move so quickly. And your leadership role will demand strong communication skills and an ability to relate to customers' needs. Our Department Managers typically join us from Store Manager, Assistant Manager, or Department Manager experiences. Associate or Bachelor's degree preferred. We're committed to your success and will provide you with an onboarding period in Primark's other US trading areas. Here, you'll find opportunities to grow. As we rapidly expand across the globe, we'll give you the tools that you need to excel. We'll also offer you competitive benefits and predictable scheduling - we know your life outside of the store is important. *This role requires the ability to relocate to stores within a specific geographical area (ie Mid-Atlantic Area (including all PA stores) as designated by Primark.
