This is a unique opportunity for you to work as a full time Sales Associate for an elegant family run retail business in Hitchin town centre. The owner of the business is a designer and manufacturer of contemporary stunning jewellery, selling a large choice of intricate pieces in her shop and online and also offering a bespoke design and tailor-made service, which starts with understanding the customers vision and requirements and carefully putting order instructions through a specific process.

As a customer facing representative in this boutique business, we are looking for someone who will deliver the same level of passion, care for the business and customer experience as the owner. You will be working alongside the owner and the stock controller, who also helps on the shop floor in between admin duties.

This opportunity is a full time post, 5 days a week including every Saturday and Monday. Your hours are 9.45am-5.15pm. The shop is closed on Sundays and you can choose a day off in the week to suit you. Being part of a small team, flexibility will be needed at times.

Our ideal Sales Associate will:

  • Be a local candidate, preferably with retail experience in a boutique or high-end brand, who is experienced at offering a personal, interactive customer experience
  • Exude a naturally friendly and approachable demeanour
  • Be someone who takes pride in their work and environment with an eye for detail and a stylish flair for display, and presenting and packaging jewellery products
  • Be highly dependable, self-motivated and trustworthy person who would be confident on the shop floor alone as well as with others - there are always at least 2 staff each day.
  • Be a confident user of computerised stock control and till systems, and able to follow a methodical admin process for orders and credit notes.

The benefits of working as a Sales Associate here include:

  • 25% staff discount on items and priority access to sale items
  • Sundays off
  • 28 days annual leave (20 personal and 8 bank holiday lieu days)
  • Pension autoenrollment
  • Monthly salary

In summary, this position will provide you with a stable permanent job with a small, successful owner managed business in a convenient town centre location and provide you with the chance to work with a beautiful range of products.

The slightly later start time of 9.45am will add appeal also.
