Retail Sales Opportunity
We are looking for a professional Retail Sales Consultant to work in our two shops in Lavenham.
We have two well established retail shops in Lavenham High Street. Retail Therapy, specialising in ladies everyday fashion clothing and accessories plus Decorum, featuring an eclectic selection of decor, fashion accessories and lifestyle products.
A senior staff member is retiring so we now need a very special person with a mature outlook on life, a drive to work hard and someone who understands the importance of providing excellent customer service, to replace her. In short, someone pretty AWESOME!
Many years in retailing has shown us that 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.
Detailed Job Specification

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 control, planning and instigating shop floor & window displays, cash handling and end of day bank reconciliation. Most importantly, you will have the skill and determination to engage with customers 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.
