Retail Sales Assistant – Royal Wootton Bassett

Do you have a keen eye for spotting a retail trend? Would you like to be part of a friendly and supportive retail team? We are looking for a Sales Assistant to join our shop in Royal Wootton Bassett.

At Prospect Hospice, we provide vital end of life care to patients living with a life limiting illness. We also support their families and loved ones through their difficult journeys. Our shops are at the heart of the charity and our community, raising vital funds and increasing public awareness of the incredible work we do.

Hours: 15 Hours per Week (2 days per week, to include either a Saturday or Sunday. This may include working on a Bank Holiday)

What is the role?

You will play an active role in generating sales in the shops and take every opportunity to increase sales through stock rotation and processing. You will operate the till and make every effort to increase our gift aid income. You will also be required to cash up and use your excellent customer service skills to provide a friendly and welcoming service for customers and donors.

We will provide training, support, and opportunities for you to make a real difference and build your career. Key to the role is that: you enjoy working with volunteers, you’re a team player and you have knowledge of fashion trends and are commercially aware.

Previous retail experience would be useful but not essential. If you have an interest in retail and have high standards of customer service, we would love to hear from you.

About you:

  • Confident, with good interpersonal skills, including customer service and relationship management
  • Able to work as part of a team and on your own, using initiative when required
  • Good IT skills
  • An interest/knowledge of fashion and trends in retail

It would also be great if you have:

  • Access to transportation – you may be required to work additional hours/days and at locations other than our Royal Wootton Bassett shop, as business needs require.

As the post-holder is required to be a key-holder, applicants must be over the age of 18.

For more information please contact Andy Wilson, Retail Team Leader on 07436 074058.

We offer a great range of benefits, including:

  • 27 days holiday FTE plus bank holidays (rising with length of service)
  • Generous contributory pension scheme and life assurance
  • Access to discounts with local retailers, gyms and service providers including Blue Light Discount Card
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Supportive induction, training and development
