Old Navy – a brand for everyone a place for you!
As the Senior Business Operations Manager, you drive profitable sales growth by connecting people to product. You do this by ensuring your store is appropriately staffed through selection, training and deployment of Brand Associates. In partnership with your General Manager and the Department Managers, you are responsible for creating effective schedules that meet the needs of the business. You lead through your team in execution of all standard operating procedures and create the conditions for your team to operate at maximum efficiency and productivity. As a senior leader in the building, you are expected to lead the leadership team in the absence of your General Manager. This is a critical leadership role within your store, leading both direct and indirect reports to positively impact the team, operations and profitability of your store. You effectively maneuver through the complexity of leading in a higher-volume environment and apply proactive problem solving to meet the needs of a dynamic business. Success in this role means your store has a consistently well-staffed, trained and engaged team supported by strategic schedules that maximize performance and support business needs.
As an Old Navy leader, your first priority is to contribute to the success of your store. This means that you not only deliver in your role as the Senior Business Operations Manager, but you also model leadership behaviors and deliver as a manager on duty. As the Manager on Duty, you deliver results during your assigned time, drive key performance indicators and brand loyalty by leading through your team.
