Job Description

The story behind Neptune Bury St Edmunds is one that dates back to the Georgian era. It was originally built for Robert Boby - a brand made up of inventors, designers and makers of hay and seed machinery. That's why the road that runs alongside our store has the name 'the Robert Boby Way'. When we restored it, we kept as many of the original features as we could from the large sash windows to the grand double staircase. And more recently, we've added new elements that are respectful of its heritage, such as the beautiful orangery at the rear.
A Neptune store is a warm and inviting place packed full of stunning kitchens, furniture, lighting and home accessories that we ourselves would be proud to own.

As a pillar of support to the Store Leader, 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.

Not only do we offer a highly competitive salary but also a discretionary bonus scheme, pension and a great range of other benefits. If we've engaged your senses and you'd like to know more, please send your CV and current salary details to us.
