** To be considered for this role you must have previous management experience, preferably within a retail setting. **

As an Apprentice Store Manager your first 6-12 months will be in the same store before we look for you to take responsibility for your own store.

Let's be honest - supporting a Store Manager in Iceland is tough. When they are on a day off or on holiday it's down to you! You are the managing director of your own little - or big - business. Imagine it is your name above the door. There's a lot of hands-on work. We need you to lead by example and get 'stuck in'. You will be rewarded and highly valued for great performance.

Once a suitable Store Manager role presents itself you then have the grounding to run your own store.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with leadership and management experience to build a career with one of Britain's fastest growing, and most innovative retailers whilst working towards their Retail Management Level 4 Apprenticeship.

Salary - £24,000

On successful completion of the 12-month Apprenticeship Scheme your salary will increase to a minimum of £28,000
