NOW HIRING - Shop Manager
The Riverton Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Thrift Shop requires a full-time permanent Thrift Shop Manager (40 hours per week, Mon-Fri, 9:30am - 5:30pm). MCC Thrift Shops sell donated clothing, books, furniture and other items in order to raise funds for the work of MCC. The shop is a ministry in and of itself, providing low-cost goods to people in our community, international and local aid, good stewardship, environmental care, a sense of community to volunteers and the people we serve.
We are one of 16 shops in the Manitoba network, owned and operated by local charitable trusts and the governing Board for the purposes of supporting the work of Mennonite Central Committee. The Riverton MCC Thrift Shop Manager is accountable to the Board and communicates regularly with the Board Chair. The Manager is responsible for general shop organization and function, making daily decisions required to operate the shop. The Manager provides supervision, oversight and management of Shop operations ensuring that the shop is operated according to the policies and guidelines established by the Board and MCC in support of the work of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). The Manager works with staff and volunteers to promote faithful stewardship to raise funds for, and awareness of, the work of MCC. This role includes ensuring a good community presence, providing good customer services, sound financial management, efficient backroom processing of donations, and an excellent shopping experience for customers. The Manager is supported by a full-time shop retail associate, part-time shop retail associate(s), and a number of regular volunteers. Some shop responsibilities can be delegated to these team members, but we are a small Thrift Shop and require a “hands-on” manager who works closely with staff in ensuring the job gets done, delegating when appropriate, but also performing the tasks as needed to ensure the efficient operation of the Thrift Shop.
