The ins and outs of retail jobs

The variety of retail jobs available is one of the reasons why it’s such a popular industry to work in. It’s pretty common knowledge that a lot of extroverts like working in retail, due to the chatty and people-oriented nature of the job. For example, you can be out on the shop floor, working as a sales assistant. Your job is to help customers find what they’re looking for, make sales, and ensure that clients leave the shop happy with their experience. If you want something higher up on the career ladder, there are also many store manager jobs available in the sector. You’d be making sure employees are doing their jobs efficiently and up to the store’s standards. If these out-going jobs interest you, explore the positions on offer on this page.

You might like the idea of a retail job, but prefer to work in a more behind-the-scenes role. If you have a keen eye for detail and aesthetics, you should consider a visual merchandiser position. You’d be the one making sure the shop looks tidy, presentable, and visually appealing to customers. You could also end up working on campaigns and advertising, depending on what direction you want to take your career. If you’re a natural-born negotiator, and you have a knack for getting good deals, you might be better suited to working as a buyer. Whether for fashion, food, furniture, or whatever it may be, shops need to buy their merchandise from somewhere. You could be the one responsible for finding the highest quality products and getting them for the best price. A lot of these backend roles can also be made into work-from-home jobs, so you really don’t have to go near customers. Sounds like a bit of you? Start applying asap!

Still not convinced that a retail job is compatible with what you’re looking for? Don’t worry, we’re sure there’s one to fit your needs. Only looking for a casual weekend job or part-time job after school? There are plenty of retail jobs for 16 and 17-year-olds, as well as uni students with a jam-packed calendar. Shop assistant jobs are the most popular among that age group, as they’re often scheduled in shifts, so you can easily fit them around school, uni, or any other commitments you may have. If you’re already working and want to advance in your career, then a job in retail management may be more suitable for you. You can gain more responsibilities to test and improve your skills, and climb your way up the career ladder.
