Are you great at managing a team, passionate about sustainability, have experience working in retail and can juggle multiple priorities?

We are looking for an Op Shop Manager to lead the team of staff and volunteers at the new Green Connect op shop in Unanderra.

Green Connect is a not-for-profit social enterprise that exists to create jobs (especially for young people and former refugees), reduce waste and grow fair food. We aim to create a shop that inspires people to buy second-hand, and to manage donations in a way that keeps waste out landfill. Our work is good for people, good for the planet. Proceeds from the op shop go straight back into supporting this work.

As part of a social enterprise, this role will have a wide and varying scope depending on what is happening within the organisation, and like everyone in the Green Connect team, needs to respond with flexibility, initiative and goodwill.

This is a part-time position, 8.45am-12.45pm Monday to Friday (20 hours per week total).

Please download the position description here. If you are interested in applying, please fill in the form below. Applications close 9am Monday 20 July.
