Best cities to get shop assistant jobs

There is a wide range of retail assistant vacancies across the UK. If you’re looking for the best salaries and chances for career growth, you should go for a shop or retail assistant job in London. The British capital offers opportunities in all types of stores, from supermarkets to luxury retailers. London also has the highest cost of living in the country and attracts talent from all parts of the world, so the competition is fierce. If career opportunities are important to you, but so is a reasonable cost of living, try a shop assistant job in Birmingham. The city is one of the top shopping destinations in the country, having received a massive amount of investment from the public and private sectors in the last decade. Is good public transport a priority for you? Go for a retail assistant job in Manchester. The city is home to most of the major retail chains in the country and offers excellent commuting options. You’ll benefit from a large fleet of trams, trains, and buses that stretch all over the city. Accommodation costs are another benefit of Manchester; rents are about half of the average London rent. You can also find great opportunities for retail assistant jobs in Glasgow, Liverpool, Leicester, and Bristol.

Shop assistant skills

Trying to figure out if you have the skills to be a retail assistant? The job is very similar to the one of a salesperson. Your work routine can include a mix of the following tasks: approaching customers, selling products, restocking shelves, receiving deliveries, conducting stock checks, processing customer payments, etc. To perform these tasks successfully, it’s helpful to have customer service skills, patience, the ability to work in a team, and initiative. Being persuasive and a people person are key qualities to help you land a sales assistant job.

Remember: you don’t need to master all these skills to land a retail assistant job. Many vacancies welcome inexperienced workers who are eager to work and willing to learn. So as long as you believe you’re able to grow into the role, go ahead and apply for any entry-level retail assistant position you’re interested in. And if you’re not feeling quite ready for a full-time role, go for a part-time retail assistant job. Pick up a night, weekend, or Saturday-only shift. When it comes to part-time work, retailers offer heaps of employment options.
