Bristol - Permanent, full-time

The role


About this Role
As we continue to grow we are looking for a new Assistant Store Leader to support our Bristol Team.

We treat everyone who visits as an individual, taking immense pride in delivering a warm and welcoming personalised service. As a pillar of support to the Store Manager, you'll understand that our customers are at the heart of everything we do. You'll lead by example, always striving to deliver outstanding service while surpassing store objectives.

In order to consistently accomplish that, you will:

  • Guide, support and motivate a dedicated retail and kitchen design team
  • Coach, train and develop new and existing team members to become brand ambassadors
  • Ensure operational excellence throughout the store and behind the scenes
  • Maintain breath-taking visual merchandising and store presentation



As a positive and confident person you'll have a proven ability in leading a team within the world of retail, ideally from a home lifestyle or interiors brand. You'll be passionate about our brand with a clear commitment to helping us drive forward the business forward.

A historical Georgian building from the 1800s, a double-height gallery space that’s open and airy, floor-to-ceiling windows that flood light onto our flower shop, and a homely atmosphere to greet you at the door. These are but a few of the things that make Neptune Bristol so special. You’ll find it in the heart of Bristol’s Clifton suburb, nestled among the cafes, restaurants and furniture shops of Whiteladies Road.

Our Story
Founded in 1996 by friends John Sims-Hilditch and Giles Redman, Neptune design and make pieces for your whole home. Recognised for our exacting standards, design-led aesthetic and expert craftsmanship, we're perhaps most known for kitchens - with heirloom-worthy dressers not far behind. Neptune's trademark 'look' is British: refined, simple, sturdy, and with an almost obsessive attention to detail. We're also respected for our commitment to craft and quality. Put simply, we make things we're proud of, and that are designed to last a lifetime.
