What are you going to do:

Ready to kickstart your career as a shop assistant? Vacancies are always popping up, so you’re sure to boost your chances by signing up for our pool. Wondering about the requirements? The qualifications for a shop assistant job aren’t anything major, in fact you don’t need many at all. A basic level of maths is needed to work the till and count stock, and you should be able to think quickly to solve customers’ problems. The most important thing is that you’re a helpful and approachable person with a positive attitude. The job description for shop assistants is pretty short, so they’re great as part-time or entry-level roles. 

But what does a shop assistant do from day to day? The duties and responsibilities of a shop assistant’s job can vary depending on the shop, but they generally follow the same idea. You’re mainly in charge of helping customers find what they’re looking for, or giving them advice if they’re not sure what they need. Other tasks that a shop assistant needs to take care of are keeping the shop neat and tidy, as well as making sure the shelves are stocked. Whether it’s clothes, food, toys, or whatever, you can’t sell if there’s nothing out! 

You’re probably most curious about the wages for a shop assistant. The pay depends on what kind of contract you have, either full-time or part-time. Shop assistant jobs are very varied, so there’s sure to be one that fits into your schedule. A part-time gig usually pays by the hour, somewhere between £9 and £13 depending on your age. If you go full-time, you can expect a shop assistant’s salary of £20,000 to £25,000 on average. 

No matter where you’re looking in the UK, from London to Glasgow, shop assistant jobs are ready and waiting for you.
