Retail Sales Careers

Staff in these areas are customer-facing and need to have or be able to acquire excellent customer service and selling skills. Good spoken and written English are important. They will also need to be able to operate a till and have basic computer skills.

Product knowledge in any of the following areas would be welcomed; however we do provide full training.

Architectural Ironmongery

We stock a large selection of architectural ironmongery for home & commercial use - everything from nails & fixings to door furniture, shelving & brackets. We also sell a large range of home and office safes and security products.

Paramount in this area is the willingness to learn all the technical aspects of our products - and there are a lot! - in order to explain and advise the customer properly. The ideal person should also be enthusiastic, flexible and committed to excellent customer service.

Curtains & Soft Furnishings

Within Curtains & Soft Furnishings we stock leading brands such as Designers Guild, Sanderson, Romo & Harlequin. We offer a full measure and make-up service for curtains, pelmets, swags & tie backs.

Along with dealing with day to day sales, staff in this area assist our customers with colours, styles & fabrics, therefore creativity, panache and flair are important. Staff also need to be computer literate as they are responsible for typing up quotations, placing orders and keeping stock records.

Decorating & Flooring

We stock interior and exterior paints and can mix colours to match customer samples. We also stock everything required for home decorating - sanding, filling and priming - plus wallpaper, alongside fence paint, decking treatments, masonry paints and so on. 

A working knowledge of DIY and a background in decorating would be a distinct advantage and must come along with a willingness to help people.

In this department we also sell a wide range of quality flooring. Previous knowledge of this would also be of benefit.

Fireplaces and Stoves

We have varying styles of real, gas and electric fires and stoves, including the Acquisitions and Charnwood ranges. Here you will need to advise, sell & arrange the fitting of our products whilst providing the highest level of customer service & advice on secondary sales for items such as flues, fire baskets, companion sets, fenders and other fireplace accessories.

Showrooms

We sell a full range of lighting from spotlights to indoor/outdoor lights, plus everything in-between!

Alongside these, we sell dishwashers, fridges, freezers, washing machines and cookers. Also stocked are smaller electrical items such as toasters, heaters, radios and all accessories relating to the above lines.

The ideal candidate to join this busy department will be articulate, presentable & conscientious. Being willing to gain a thorough working knowledge of the products on offer is a must, as is the ability to offer first rate customer care.

Tools

We stock renowned, reliable brand names such as Bosch, Hitachi, Metabo, Dewalt and Record.

As well as an extensive range of power tools, we also stock a full range of hand tools to suit both the professional and DIY enthusiast, alongside work/protective clothing (boots & overalls).

A working knowledge of power tools and DIY would therefore be a distinct advantage for any candidate wishing to join this busy department. A willingness to assist people and a background in a similar sales environment would be beneficial.

Furniture

We offer classic, contemporary & retro free-standing furniture from across the world for bedrooms, lounges, dining rooms & kitchens from manufacturers such as Coach House & Dan-form.

To work in this department you will have strong sales experience and the ability to gain a thorough knowledge of all the different ranges whilst offering an exceptional level of customer service.

Spas

We sell Master Spas and Swim Spas - with working models on show - along with all the accessories to keep the waters and tub clean and sparkling.
