You will be responsible for managing an effective and engaged team of volunteers, maximising the business and being quick to respond and lead by example.

Background to post: The current (temporary) Carradale Shop is a pop-up shop created and run by the Carradale Community Trust (CCT), a registered charity formed to benefit the communities within the area defined by East Kintyre Community Council. The shop is run by volunteers and currently opens 6 days per week from 10:00 to 14:00, providing basic needs for the community that include: basic foodstuffs, household products, general groceries and basic pharmaceuticals. The success of the temporary shop has led the CCT to acquire and refurbish Carradale Post Office/Gift Shop which will become the permanent shop for East Kintyre and which will provide a wide range of goods and services, including local produce. We wish to appoint a shop manager for two years in the first instance, to manage the transition from the temporary shop to this new store, after which time the CCT intend to lease the shop to a full time manager.
