Area Sales Manager
What drives our Area Sales Managers? Ask them and they’ll tell you that it’s having the best-performing stores in the country. But that doesn’t happen by accident. Great sales figures don’t fall into your lap. As an Area Sales Manager, you’ll come up with an area business plan that’s in line with the Clarks retail strategy while being perfectly in tune with your stores’ needs.
It’s up to you to know every single thing that’s going on in your stores. The team, what support they need, the sales figures, the products that are flying off the shelves. In other words, everything that makes for a successful, high-performing store. On average, you’ll look after 20-25 stores in a given area, and you’ll spend a lot of your time in them. By working closely with Store Managers and their teams, by taking the time to listen to them, you’ll be able to help them make their store experience even better. Because, as you appreciate, better customer service means better sales.
You’ll be an inspiring mentor to your Store Managers, sharing best practice and helping them to be the best they can be – and achieve the best figures they can. You’ll pass on your expertise through coaching, training and development. Sometimes, it’ll be one-to-one sessions. Other times, you’ll get a number of managers together for a workshop. Really, it’s up to you to come up with the best way to get the most of Store Managers. You’ll also make sure that we never miss a retail trick, that we’re maximising every conceivable commercial opportunity. Inspirational retail guru? That’s you.
