We hit milestone as a company this summer – employing, in one month, more than 200 people for the very first time! We’ve always had a number of students who join us over the summer months to work across the shop, particularly in our busy schoolwear department.
The quality of our team are vital to our continued success and the service we offer. We are blessed with a stable and committed workforce who have developed strong relationships with many customers over the years. Our students quickly embrace this ethos and as we reach the busy peak weeks I am always heartened by their performance. I know many of them do not seek long term careers in retail, but the customer service skills they gain – not to mention confidence to deal with a whole variety of situations – must help them in their future career paths. When the government seem to be raising the importance of good work experience on a CV, I believe our cohort are already there.
All the best,
