As part of the retail sector, an applicant can work their way up from a cashier or a sales associate to a store manager. They can also become visual merchandisers, marketing managers, inventory managers or take on roles that are for security or quality control.
There are several ways to obtain a retail job. Hiring managers can either take the old-fashioned approach by placing a “Help Wanted” sign in their shop window or advertise online. The latter will probably yield faster results by attracting a wider pool of applicants. Retail workers tend to be well-spoken, confident and friendly. They’ll have an uncanny ability to connect with people and will also possess persuasive skills. To get a retail job, employers may not require the candidate to have prior experience and may be willing to teach on the job. If a candidate will have cleared their GCSEs, their chances of landing a job will improve. The average salary for a retail worker will be £8.40 per hour in the UK.
