We are climbers, we support climbers and we employ climbers.
To work at Climbing Anchors, you've gotta have a sense of humour and an enthusiastic attitude. Knowledge of climbing, equipment, and the outdoors in general is essential.
ABOUT CLIMBING ANCHORS
We are a homegrown Australian gear store founded in 2004 which has been rapidly growing since 2010. What initially began as an online only operation has transformed/expanded over the years to now include four stores. The first flagship store was our Alexandria location in 2017, followed by Collingwood in 2018, our Mini Store in 9 Degrees Lane Cove and soon to be a new Mini Store in 9 Degrees Waterloo. Our stores are more than just gear shops, our team is made up of enthusiastic climbers, canyoners and guides from all different walks of life. We love getting out there and engaging in the sport we all love, sharing our stories and passing on the stoke to everyone who walks through our doors; no matter what stage they're at.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Our Alexandria store has grown over the past three years and we are looking for an enthusiastic climber to join the leadership team in the role of Assistant Manager. The store is a 10min walk from Green Square train station, and is halfway between the station and the 9 Degrees Alexandria bouldering gym. 9 Degrees Waterloo and our Mini Store there is a 20min walk, and Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym is a 30min walk away.
As Assistant Manager, you will be responsible for working alongside the Store Manager to deliver outstanding customer service, maximise sales, and ensure the overall health of the Alexandria Store. Additional responsibilities may include developing your staff through coaching and training, climbing, providing feedback on new gear and product information, and keeping up to date with climbing gear and knowledge.
To succeed in this role you will be motivated by seeing climbers get the gear they need, driving sales, talking about climbing, hanging out with climbers, feeding the stoke, and be passionate about providing a memorable service experience for every climber.
This is a full time permanent position and will require availability over weekends, late night trading hours and some public holidays.
