Helping you find a career in retail sector
Retail is a diverse industry and there are roles with every different skill set imaginable - from supermarket managers to visual merchandisers (the people who dress shop windows).
In retail, you'll help with every aspect of creating a great customer experience, from assisting and serving customers to ensuring shelves are stocked and the store is welcoming and attractive. You'll also get an insight into ordering, merchandising and the entire retail organisation.
As a job sector it is a big deal, employing three million workers across the UK, and totting up hundreds of billions of pounds in sales every year. It is the largest private sector employer in the country.
Working in retail doesn't just involve working behind the check-out or stocking shelves - there are a wide range of roles, from high-level management to distribution centre.
The industry is going through a massive change at the moment, as many UK retailers are at the cutting-edge of e-commerce and are simultaneously finding their feet in selling their brands through social media - so it's an exciting time to get involved.
