We're looking for an enthusiastic and reliable part-time sales associate to join our The North Face outlet store at Braintree Village.
The North Face is the premier exploration company in the world. We spark curiosity. We dare to disrupt. We create communities. And we lead with integrity. We are a community of explorers and are constantly looking for new ideas, places and people to connect with.
The North Face is a subsidiary of VF, the world's largest apparel and footwear company comprised of over 30 brands. You may ask "just who is VF?" Well, if you are an active lifestyler then you are probably very familiar with brands such as Vans, The North Face, Timberland, Napapijri and others. They are just some of the names we manufacture and sell in over 1,500 stores across 170 countries.
As the face of our brand your input will be key, providing great customer service and contributing to the success of the store.
Let's talk about the role!
We strive to create a fun and supportive team environment where every member plays their part in creating a great customer experience. And whether you're working part time or thinking about a career in retail, we expect that our sales associates deliver exceptional customer service and contribute to the store's success in the following ways:
Is this the right job for you?
What makes you the perfect sales associate?
First of all, you LOVE interacting with people! You get your passion by helping customers finding the perfect product and you want every customer to leave your store happy. You understand that every customer needs a different approach and you know how to deliver it.
Your passion and enthusiasm for the brand, your store and delivering great customer service should shine through.
Work should be fun, so it's important that all our sales associates play their part in creating a strong, supportive environment. You are a great team player and are willing to do all it takes to contribute to the success of the entire team. For you, there is no such thing as "that's not my job".
It would be great if you have already had some experience in retail but what's more important is that you have the attitudes we've described above. if you have these, you'll become a great retailer in a very short time.
What's in it for you?
We understand that not everyone is looking for a long-term career in retail and many of our people work with us on a part-time or temporary basis. That's not a problem, and we'll always try to fit your lifestyle needs around that of the store and the team. We pride ourselves on looking after all our people so you'll still enjoy competitive renumeration, an amazing bonus scheme and staff discounts (btw we offer 50%!).
However, if you're thinking about building a career with us, we will do all we can to nurture and look after you. We offer:
And by the way, some of our other benefits include a contributory pension scheme, health benefits and much more!
If you like what you have read and want to join our team then we would be keen to hear from you.
Hours: 8 hours per week
