Retail Sales Opportunity
Retail Therapy is looking for a professional Retail Sales Consultant to work in our two ladies fashion and accessory shops in Lavenham.
We need a special person with a mature outlook on life, a drive to work hard and someone who understands the importance of providing excellent customer service. In short, someone pretty AWESOME!
The following, by an HR Director of a successful national company, summarises what we need and want!
“We can hire nice people and teach them to sell but we can’t hire sales people and teach them to be nice.”
That’s why we prioritise attitude over aptitude when hiring new people. Ideally, it would be nice to have someone who has both but if we had to choose between attitude vs. aptitude, we would always go with the former. We are much happier to train a positive person who’s open to learning and who shares our values than we would be trying to modify someone’s default attitude and disposition.
Detailed Job Specifiation
This is an exciting opportunity for a professionally-minded retail sales person who could happily and confidently work in either of our Retail Therapy shops. Responsibilities will include all the usual tasks involved in the day-to-day running of an independent retail shop such as checking and pricing orders, merchandise display, keeping sales areas clean and tidy, cash handling and end of day bank reconciliation. Most importanty, you will have the skill and determination to achieve daily sales targets.
Applicants will naturally have previous experience in a retail sales environment and feel totally comfortable engaging with customers on friendly, knowledgeable and professional terms. Our existing sales staff work with a positive, can-do attitude, are able to work on their own initiative and also as part of a small team.
