Debenhams Welsh stores are on the hunt for over 340 new members of staff this Christmas to help deliver the perfect shopping experience and encourage shoppers to ‘do a bit of Debenhams’.
The seasonal jobs are available right across Wales, including Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Llandudno, Llanelli, Merthyr Tydfil, Bangor Carmarthen and Wrexham Debenhams stores.
The colleagues will work on the sales floor during the store’s busiest times including Black Friday, Christmas and the Boxing Day sales. Successful applicants will start mid-November and work until the beginning of January.
Debenhams has a strong position in the gifting market with ranges across beauty, accessories, food and fashion. As a result, it is regarded as the go-to destination for shoppers at Christmas.
Lucy Dolton, store manager at Debenhams Cardiff store, said:
“Christmas is our busiest time of year. We begin planning months before the festivities start to make sure we deliver the high level of service that customers expect from Debenhams.
Our sales colleagues play an important role in not only helping shoppers find the right item but also making sure that they have an enjoyable experience instore – they are a vital part of making sure that everyone has the best Debenhams experience possible.”
The retailer is keen to hear from candidates who want to join a great team, have a strong ‘can-do’ approach and are eager to learn the ropes. Previous retail experience is not essential – Debenhams has in fact more recently looked to the hospitality industry for skills, experience and candidates that are fun, sociable and have a genuine love of shopping.
Lucy continues: “Many colleagues who join us over this period stay on as permanent members of the team, so it’s a great opportunity for candidates to apply at this crucial time in the recruitment calendar.”
