What's in it for you?
We're a company that values its people, so we've created a range of shifts to help find one that's right for you, whether you're full or part-time. If you're an early bird, or a night owl, or are perhaps looking to work 3 on/3 off, we can accommodate for your lifestyle. For those who want to progress, this could be the start of a whole new career. We'd love you to grow with us, so you'll have access to our Retail Academy, where we have numerous training opportunities to help fulfill your potential. Don't forget, while you're with us you'll also benefit from; up to 50% discount in our High Street Stores, tax/duty free shopping, flexible working, childcare vouchers and many more.
What you'll do?
You'll get our customers' journey within Heathrow Airport off to the best start by giving them an exceptional experience. Whether they're rushing to catch an important business flight, jetting off on a romantic holiday or flying to somewhere fun with family & friends, you'll put their needs first. Nothing's too much effort. Sometimes, that means you're a friendly face on one of our tills - serving efficiently and sharing any of the great offers we might have. At other times, you'll ensure our displays are always as they should be, stocking our shelves so that our customers can easily find what they want. Or, of course, you could be answering queries on the shop floor, building relationships and sharing your product knowledge. No matter what you're doing, you'll pull together with your team mates so that our customers leave wanting to come back.
Who we're looking for
We operate at the sharp end of retail, which makes for a fast paced role that demands hard work. This ethos creates a great sense of family in our stores as every member of the team is ready to lend a hand. Perhaps surprisingly, what you don't need is bags of retail or customer service experience. We're looking for people who are great listeners, good to talk to, naturally helpful, flexible and who have a healthy dose of ambition. The rest will come. With the backing of your team, we'll give you all the skills you need to succeed. And for those who want to get on, we'll positively encourage you. As a Sales Assistant, there's nothing stopping you becoming a future Store Manager or working in one of our Head Offices! At WHSmith we aim to find solutions that benefit us both. There are No Limits when it comes to your career at WHSmith.
