Your Career as a Store Manager

Are you commercially minded with a strong people focus?

Our Managers lead their teams to deliver quality across the following three areas:


Leading and motivating the store team through coaching and providing constructive feedback encouraging them to enhance performance.

Store Standards

Customer’s first impressions are key; we are proud to provide our customers with excellent store standards. 

Customer Service

Identifying every opportunity to maximise customer experience with exceptional service. 

Life as a Store Manager

Coaching Skills

Our coaching culture encourages two-way feedback supporting both personal and professional growth. We have built an environment where it’s natural for us to give regular, honest feedback and to coach in the moment. As a Store Manager, you will be expected to lead the way and demonstrate this with your team.

LEAD Academy

For those wanting to develop their management and leadership skills further, we offer the opportunity to apply for our LEAD Academy. This 18-month programme is fully sponsored by Safestore and provides the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised management qualification (Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 5). 

Chloe Yeoman - Store Manager (Peterborough)

" I have worked with Safestore for 2.5 years. I am also a Training & Recruitment manager, helping new Sales Consultants get the best start to their career at Safestore.

I can truly say it is one of the best companies I have worked for.  You may ask, why? The main reason is that I feel like part of a family – there is no sense of feeling like you’re just a number. The values we hold as a company are like no other and are truly demonstrated by all those who work for Safestore. It really is somewhere I can call a home from home. 

The thing I enjoy most about my role is motivating and inspiring my team to be the best that they can be, leading them to succeed. Having small teams of 3-4 people means that I can give them my full attention, support them on a day-to-day basis, and deliver coaching sessions alongside personal development plans, which all enhances their performance.

Safestore offers a wide variety of personal development opportunities.  One of which I am very interested in is LEAD, which is a Level 5 apprenticeship program based on Leadership and Management. This will give me the opportunity to gain a leadership and management qualification, learn new skills, and develop myself as a Store Manager, in the hopes one day I will become a Regional Manager. 

All in all, how would I describe Safestore in 3 words?  Enjoyable, inspiring, and friendly! "
