A day in the life of.....
As an electrical goods store manager, Tim is responsible for the daily operational needs of his store, for input into the long-term store plans and for maintaining contact with his Regional Manager.
Tim liaises with and delegates to his assistant manager and also monitors the completion of store tasks on a daily and weekly basis. He is accountable for maintaining the store consistent with company standards and within legislative requirements, and for developing and implementing appropriate contingency plans to manage any situations that arise.
Tim has to be very self-directed, as he is not closely supervised in his role, and he is further refining his retail management skills.
