Toys R Us - Graduate Assistant Store Managers

Salary: Competitive + benefits
Location: South East, South West, London, Brighton, Ilford, Reading, Southampton, Poole, Woking, Brent Cross, Hendon, Hayes, Harlington
Start date: ASAP
Sectors: Customer Service, Management, Retail

At Toys R Us we’re passionate about nurturing talent and as Managers have developed and taken on new opportunities, many at the helm of their own stores, we now have a number of fantastic opportunities for you to join the fun!

Toys "R" Us is Britain's and the World’s leading Family Leisure, Baby Care and Toy Megastore with stores throughout the UK. We have immediate opportunities for 2016 Graduates and September start dates for 2017 Graduates to join us as Trainee Assistant Store Managers in the following areas:

London – Brent Cross, Enfield, Old Kent Road, Hayes
Essex – Thurrock, Ilford
South Coast – Brighton, Southampton, Poole
South East - Woking/Reading
Scotland - Edinburgh

Your degree discipline isn’t as important to us as your experience already gained in retail and a desire to build a career in retail management. Mobility to work in more than one store will be essential and flexibility on location will be key to the speed of your progression – for stores outside London, the ability to drive is therefore a requirement.

Your 12 week intensive training is store based and you will quickly develop through our involved approach, but from the very outset you will be expected to take control and drive your own training. On successful completion of your training programme you will graduate to Assistant Store Manager and will take up full responsibilities within the Store Management team.

Because we’re proud of our commitment to people development and promotions from within, graduates with Toys "R" Us can have the confidence of knowing that their progression is based on their ability and results, not length of time in the job. We expect Graduates to be ready to take up a Store Manager role within around 2 years, however our quickest Graduate from Trainee to Store Manager achieved it in just 9 months – can you beat them?

You will receive a highly attractive package including a minimum £22k starting salary, achievable bonuses, staff discounts, access to exclusive savings on brand name retailers and other great benefits. While the package is attractive, the real prize for you is your opportunity for rapid progression to a General Store Manager and a great career in a fun packed environment.
