It's an exciting time at Kmart - we are currently Australia's most profitable retailer and we have some big plans in place that will ensure our business continues to grow and be hugely successful! We are currently transforming the look and feel of our stores with the aim of significantly increasing our retail business. We have over 200 stores already open throughout Australia and New Zealand, we employ over 30,000 team members and we have another 50 new stores in the pipeline to ensure we are expanding our business!
At Kmart Australia, we are all about being IRRESISTIBLE! Our products and prices are amazing and each day we do our outmost to exceed our customers' expectations… and a huge part of our success is attributed to the amazing management teams who provide outstanding leadership in our stores.
Our Department Managers lead a team of 20+ staff while increasing sales results year on year. They coach, motivate and develop their team, replenish and merchandise the department and provide exceptional customer service.
We offer a fun and fast paced work environment with an opportunity to gain exposure to big box retailing and professional development (leadership training programs).
The ideal candidate should have a solid background in retail management, a passion for driving exceptional customer service and (ideally), experience working in a big box environment. You will be a high achiever with a passion that will motivate and inspire your team, along with the ability to manage those above and below you. Enthusiastic and reliable, your ability to work flexible hours and at different locations will be the key to your success. We reward hard work, and are committed to workplace safety and contribute to the community. You may already have worked in a big box environment and can hit the ground running!
Being IRRESISTIBLE means we pride ourselves on being a values led organisation and believe that integrity, boldness, team work & customer service drives our success. Our culture is fun, positive, honest and professional. We treat each other equally, with respect and we like to keep things simple.
We operate at a fast pace, are highly results focussed and we all work collaboratively to ensure the continued success of our business and that we delight our customers every day! Our structure is non-hierarchical; our leaders are approachable and foster a culture that encourages innovation, creativity and autonomy.
We have a lot to offer our team members including great development opportunities across both Kmart and the Wesfarmer's Group, excellent remuneration, an uncapped bonus scheme, in-store clothing discount and free uniform, benefits program and access to Wesfarmer's share plan.
