Eccles Branch Manager
For nearly 20 years Mustard Tree has been a Greater Manchester based charity committed to providing life support for people who are homeless and marginalised. We serve through the provision of food, clothing, furniture and training, with the aim of working towards long-term solutions.

We work with those who are facing the greatest barriers to employment, education, good health outcomes, safe and secure housing, social integration, and financial and digital inclusion. We tackle both the causes and consequences of poverty. We currently operate from bases in Ancoats, Eccles and now Little Hulton where we seek to offer both crises interventions; food, clothing and furniture, as well as programmes designed to build life skills and employment skills.

We are looking for an individual to manage our Eccles branch, which operates as a charity shop, food bank, and community hub, whilst offering training and development to the people that Mustard Tree supports. This post is based at our Eccles site although occasional travel to our other branches may be required.

The successful applicant will have proven experience in a retail environment with excellent communication skills and an ability to work under pressure. We are seeking someone who can manage a team of volunteers, develop Mustard Tree’s community profile and work with people from across the community.

The successful applicant will also be confident keeping accurate and up to date records, following efficient processes as well as supporting the monitoring and evaluation of the charity’s extensive activities.

We welcome applications from individuals from within the charitable sector as well as those with appropriate experience seeking to move from other sectors.
