* make sure the shop always looks its best by keeping it clean and tidy
* work in a fast paced environment on different tasks throughout the day

Being a customer assistant would suit people who have:

* a real passion for customer service
* great communications and listening skills
* the ability to work as a team and achieve team and individual goals
* an enthusiastic approach to work and a willingness to support your colleagues when the store gets busier
* the flexibility to work a range of shifts to support the opening times of the store

* a competitive rate of pay including an increase after 6 months

Building an inclusive workplace

We’re actively building diverse teams and welcome applications from everyone. But simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to build an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities they serve.

As part of your customer assistant application you’ll be sent an email inviting you to complete a short online test. This needs to be done within 3 working days for you to be considered for interview.
