Manchester Buddhist Centre Opportunity Shop
The Manchester Opportunity Shop is a Buddhist Team Based Right Livelihood (TBRL) business, supported by the Manchester Buddhist Centre. We are looking for two experienced and creative individuals to work with the Opportunity Shop Board of Trustees to finalise the business plan for this new TBRL business.

Once the plan is completed, the two individuals will work with the trustees to find a premises within Manchester, get the business ready for trading and then work in the shop. This is an exciting opportunity to have input into the operational and strategic vision of a TBRL business before the doors are open to customers!

As the Opportunity Shop will not be trading during the development of the business plan, successful individuals MAY be required to work on a voluntary basis, and may be remunerated for their time once trading commences. This will be discussed more fully at the interview stage.

The successful individuals will either be Triratna GFR Mitras or Order Members who are committed to making the Opportunity Shop a financial and spiritual success.
