About the role

When it comes to generating stock, maximising value, and building customer loyalty, we put a lot of trust in our retail staff. Our Sales Assistants work alongside the management team and volunteers to drive shop performance. As a Sales Assistant you will be involved in all aspects of a customer focussed role such as:

  • Ensuring highest standard of customer service
  • Achieving maximum sales

As a Keyholder, you will be responsible for the store when there isn't a manager on duty, and this may involve lone working. Therefore, applicants must be 18+ years old.

This position is for 7 hours and includes some weekend working on a rota basis. You will join the team on a 12 month contract.

About you

Previous experience in retail is not essential. However, the desire to achieve the absolute best in customer service is. You will have the ability to work collaboratively with others and be comfortable guiding the activity of volunteer team members.

Why join the BHF?

We have a strong culture of internal progression and will actively support you to develop your career.

Our generous staff benefits include:
  • 33 days annual leave including bank holidays
  • 25% staff discount
  • Health cash plan
  • Pension with employer contribution up to 10%
  • Life assurance
  • Discount options for gym membership
  • Discounts with a range of retailers
