Retail OperationsThis team consists of area managers, store management & sales team members. With over 60 stores spread out across Ireland and Northern Ireland in the best retail locations, this is one of the most exciting parts of the business to work in.
Area ManagersEach Area Manager has a portfolio of stores that they are responsible for. They drive standards, engage and motivate their store teams, to challenge what they do and become better. A big part of this role is to develop talented people to become great managers! They work with all our brand centre functions to drive service in our stores for our customers.
How did I get to my current role in Life Style Sports?
Having studied Business Recreation & Leisure at college I knew Retail was something I was passionate about. Working part-time as a Retailer. I became involved in clustering stores such as Enniskillen & our Flagship store in Galway Retail Park as well as Galway city centre - I loved that challenge. Lots of hard work, lots of determination & a fantastic team behind me I joined the operations team as an Area Manager over a year and a half ago and have loved every minute of it since...
What's my team like?
I have the honour of being part of a super operations team. We are all so different with lots of different attributes with diverse backgrounds, experience in Life Style Sports with a mix of experience from large Sporting Retailers in Ireland & the UK.
