Energetic? Enthusiastic? Looking for a summer job? Have the talent and personality to amaze our youngest customers? If so, it sounds like you’ve got what it takes to join our Clarks Merryhill store as a Summer Sales Team Member.
Every step begins with you
It takes a great team effort to make a Clarks store a success. But retail isn’t just about selling shoes. It’s about providing a fantastic shopping experience – especially during our busy summer months. And that’s down to the people that work in our stores. Join us as a Summer Sales Team Member and you’ll be in the thick of the action, delighting our school-aged customers and helping them find shoes they’ll love to wear.
From welcoming customers into your store to making sure the shop floor’s spotless or lending a hand in the stockroom, you’ll take great pride in being the face of Clarks. Comfortable building rapport with customers, you’ll play an active role in every stage of the end-to-end selling process and will know what it takes to close a sale. Above all, you’ll know how to give great advice, amaze our youngest customers and make sure everyone, including their parents, leave with a smile. You’ll feel right at home in our friendly, supportive team and you can be sure that your hard work will be recognised.
Good with people and a great team player, you’ll love nothing more than delighting our customers. You thrive on the shop floor, getting hands-on with sales and keeping the tills ringing. Your natural instinct for people means you know the right moment to make suggestions – and when to step back and let customers make their decision. An interest in fashion and footwear goes without saying. Experience in a similar role would help, as would a flexible approach to hours. And of course, you’ll need to be an enthusiastic people person.
Life with us
Every 60 seconds, 105 pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.6 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 15,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s biggest everyday footwear brand (by sale volume), we’re still owned by the Clarks family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
As well as development opportunities, option to join the pension fund and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of benefits. These range from an annual allowance of 20 days holiday (plus bank holidays), pro-rated, to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
We love hearing from great people
