About Us



When it comes to retail, we are leaders in the sector. We have over 700 stores all over the UK. We serve over 30 million customers each year via our omni-channel offerings. With donations from the public, we’re investing in ground-breaking research that will get us closer than ever to a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.



About the role



Our Sales Assistants work alongside the management team and volunteers to ensure the efficient running of the store. You will support in driving shop performance and will also be responsible for the shop operations in the absence of the Management team. You will be given lots of autonomy and will strive to continually build your knowledge of the BHF.


A career with us will allow your entrepreneurial spirit to flourish. By joining our dedicated teams, you will be part of helping to create the next big breakthrough, from heart transplants and pacemakers, to stents and clot busting drugs. What’s more, you’ll have a job that helps keep millions of hearts beating and millions of families together.


About you


You’ll have experience of working in the retail or service sector with some experience at supervisory level and will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment. Motivated by the knowledge your hard work will make a life-saving difference, you’ll be proactive, driven and customer focused.


Why join the BHF?


More than 1 in 4 of us still die from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. And nearly a million people are living with the life changing effects of heart failure. We urgently need to fund more research to find answers fit for 21st century challenges. So, if you’re looking for the first step in your retail career then we could have the role for you. We value, nurture and invest heavily in our staff because they’re the people behind our success. We are proud to offer a welcoming and supportive working environment and a sector leading benefits package.
