Job Description

What’s in this for you?
  • A broad and empowering executive level career opportunity that will showcase your proven General Management/CEO/COO talents across every aspect of Retail.
  • A role where you can make a difference in a high growth business with an appetite for change, evolution and innovation.
  • A ‘home’ where you will realise the extent of your leadership mettle in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.
  • The opportunity to report directly to one of the country’s most admired CEO’s who puts people and customers first.
  • A passionate, dedicated, performance-orientated senior management team who you can rely on to deliver on your strategy.
Your prospective employer:

This Australian retailer is one to watch. Consistently leading the market, they have a strategic success formula that wins customers’ hearts and minds based on product, quality, value, service, price and in-store experience. Their proven business model also sees them expanding their national presence with strong momentum, sustained by exceptional leadership and vision from within the business.  They now require the prowess of a Retail Director to take the business by the hand and march it towards its strategic vision, as they continue to put people, customers and service at the forefront.

What will you do in an average week?
  • Accountable to the CEO and staying true to the DNA of the business, you will shape the future of this retailer through the development and delivery of a strategic growth plan that will maximise current business strengths and explore new growth avenues across every aspect of Retail.
  • With full financial and operational accountability, you will be empowered to map out and crystalise the ‘how’ that will take this exciting retailer from ‘current’ to ‘future’ state. You will cascade your vision into action with a collaborative leadership approach where an open dialogue liberates your senior management team to explore ideas and make things happen.
Here’s what it will take:
  • Solid ‘bricks and mortar’ retail experience where growth has been achieved with a clear vision for the business, customers and team members.  We are interested in retail executives who are abreast of global and local retail trends across channels and can effectively build this knowledge and innovation into their strategic intent as well as their execution.
  • You may be currently a Head of Retail, Executive Retail Director, Exec GM -Retail, COO or CEO of a retail business, responsible for all aspects and now looking for something bigger.
  • You have proven experience within a franchise retail setting, managing and balancing the nuances, personalities and legal/contractual complexities of this environment. Your influencing style has strongly supported your success.
  • A leadership style described as level-headed, patient, motivational, humble, a team-builder, able to balance the views of disparate parties, and highly diplomatic.
  • Authenticity oozes from your every pore.
If it’s time for you to put your experience to something incredible, please call Nicola Crocco on:  0420 990 602 for a confidential conversation.
