A Department Manager’s job at Primark is unlike a management job at any other retailer. You’ll be taking full responsibility of your own department, with a team to lead and inspire. You’ll be free to make your own decisions. What stock do you get in? How do you set up your department? Everything to do with delivering a great commercial return will be your show, and you’ll have plenty of support when you need it.
You will own a department, and focus on maximizing its sales, inventory and standards. Department Managers have the power to impact the business daily, by managing inventory, moving product in accordance with customer demand and by being commercial (meaningthat you’ll know what is trendingand thus order your merchandise daily to drive sales).
You will keep an eye on the local market to maintain a competitive advantage in price, product, and shopping experience.As the leader of your department, you will hire, train, coach and motivate a team of Retail Assistants and Supervisors. This is crucial to ensuring your department delivers an exceptional shopping experience for every customer.
We’re looking for a fashion-loving person with at least 2 years of retail management and fashion related experience with strong commercial accumen. You’ll need to be nimble and adaptable since we move so quickly. And your leadership role will demand strong communication skills and an ability to relate to customers’ needs.Our Department Managers typically join us from Store Manager, Assistant Manager, or Department Manager experiences. Associate or Bachelor’s degree preferred.
We’re committed to your success, and will provide you with an onboarding period in Primark’s other U.S. trading areas.Here, you’ll find opportunities to grow. As we rapidly expand across the globe, we’ll give you the tools that you need to excel.
