Store manager - Perth
We are currently looking for a Store Manager to manage our Port Kennedy Superstore. We are looking someone who can provide exceptional leadership behaviors, wants to run a business as if it was their own (and there are opportunities to become a shareholder), and does not mind getting their hands dirty both figuratively and literally.
With a small team to manage but with high volume it’s a fast pace role where you are exposed to all roles within your leadership role.
We stock and love Trek and base many parts of our business on the Trek way of doing business. We also stock many other leading brands of bikes and accessories.
It’s a turbulent time in the bicycling industry, a number of retailers are feeling the pinch and now we are seeing the leading names in online bicycle retailing potentially ending their business. But because of this and other factors we believe that a major opportunity exists for The Bike Place – bikeplace.com.au to become a major player in the Australian bicycling ecommerce space. We also believe we can grow our already massive offering here in WA.
