Walker & Ling is a unique, local, family-run department store and we are looking for excellent people to join the family. You’ll need to be passionate about serving customers and helping others, and work well in a team.
Fashion Focused Customer Assistant
Full time position (35 hours a week)
This role is an exciting and varied opportunity; no two days will be the same! As part of a family-run business, you will be involved in all aspects of the department store, and so you’ll need to be flexible.
First and foremost, you will need to provide excellent customer service. You will need to be able to connect with the customer, discover their needs and help them shop, so you will have to be a positive, polite and enthusiastic people-person.
As well as providing excellent customer service, you will also help manage stock, including: regular stock counts, placing orders and processing deliveries. In time, you may be given individual responsibilities which will require you to work independently and use your initiative. So we are certainly looking for reliability and an attention to detail. The role will require some detailed paperwork, though computer skills are not essential.
Retail experience is preferable, and an interest in fashion/clothing will help too.
We look forward to welcoming you into the Walker & Ling family.
