Store Manager - Nordic Outdoor Covent Garden


Nordic Outdoor is on a mission to bring the Scandinavian approach to ‘outdoors’ to everyone in the UK. As an independently owned retailer with stores in Edinburgh, London and the Lake District we see ourselves as ambassadors for Scandinavian culture, clothing & equipment.

As we continue to grow and develop our place in the UK Outdoor retail scene an exciting opportunity has come up to join the Nordic family as a Store Manager in our fast moving Covent Garden location. Initially opened in 2022 Nordic Outdoor Covent Garden has grown to become our flagship venture where product knowledge, customer service and the ability to go the extra mile has helped set us apart from more traditional outdoor retailers.

As a growing company this is a great opportunity to be involved in the next chapter of the Nordic Outdoor story and we are seeking an experienced candidate for the role of Store Manager to create a memorable shopping experience for our London based customers.

Being a Scandinavian company many of the views on outdoor clothing and equipment differ from those commonly accepted in the UK. Through educating customers and providing top class customer service we hope all our customers walk away with not only the ideal product but also with a deep understanding of why this is the perfect product for their needs. We hope that when our customers leave a Nordic Outdoor they take a little bit of Scandinavian attitude with them.


Who is the perfect candidate?

Our new Store Manager should have a strong retail background, having worked in a managerial position in a similar type of fast paced retail environment. You will be working with a team of up to 10 staff including an experienced Assistant Manager and should have experience in managing a team of this size.

While there are some processes and operations which come along with the role of Manager we are looking for a sales superstar. Someone who can lead from the front and ensure that our customers are getting the best experience every time they shop with Nordic Outdoor. While it is of course ideal if you have a background, and perhaps more importantly an interest in the outdoor industry, training on the job will be provided.

Our staff are the most important part of our business. Since this role will involve spending time out on the shop floor, the ideal candidate should bring a passion for retail sales to the post, excelling at customer service while at the same time maximising the opportunities from each sale.

By providing knowledgeable and honest advice, you will guide the customer through the entire buying process while educating them about our way of looking at outdoor clothing and equipment. To make sure that our staff feel confident in this sales approach, all staff go through continuous product training as well as on the job skills development.

The successful candidate will take full responsibility of the successful day to day running of our Covent Garden Store and will also receive support from our Head Office team. As a small independent company you have the opportunity to put your own stamp on this role and see changes you recommend come to life much faster than in multinationals. As the store manager you will work closely with our MD, Buyer, Marketing manager and Operations manager to help Nordic Outdoor take the next step in our journey.
