Part Time Sales Assistant – LEICESTER, The Old Braunstone, Fulhurst Avenue, off Narborough Road, LE3 2RB

Part Time Vacancy – 16 hours per week to be worked over 4 days. This will include weekends worked on a rota basis.

High Seat Ltd – HSL – is a rapidly growing, nationally recognised specialist furniture retailer with a first class reputation for comfort, quality and customer care. Established almost 50 years ago, our company has enjoyed year on year growth in the UK retail market and has a current portfolio of 58 stores/showrooms and a successful home consultation business.
HSL is looking for friendly Part Time Sales Assistants to join our team and be part of our exciting growth story.

Our people and our customers are at the core of everything we do.

With your can-do approach, you’ll happily go the extra mile to help customers. With natural empathy, excellent conversational skills and the ability to communicate with customers using appropriate language to build rapport, you will be able to engage customers in genuine, enjoyable conversations to understand their needs.

You’ll work hard to understand what our customers want in order to sell them the products that suit their unique needs. You will have experience of dealing with customers and basic PC, literacy and numeracy skills. A team player, you’ll contribute to the positive work environment and will communicate well with both colleagues and customers.

Sales Assistants/Comfort Specialists play a key role in the success of our stores, delivering an exceptional customer experience to all customers visiting the store and during home consultations, to maximise all sales opportunities. We currently have opportunities for part time Sales Assistant/Comfort Specialists – ideal positions for anyone looking for a more flexible approach to the working week.

This position is for 16 hours per week but there will be an expectation for you to work overtime at busy periods and to cover holiday and sick leave.
Working closely with the Team Leader, our Sales Assistant/Comfort Specialists develop expert product knowledge and professional selling techniques to create a positive, welcoming environment for customers at all times.

You will assist customers visiting the store, identifying their needs and answering product-related questions whilst, at the same time, optimising sales and encouraging customer loyalty.  You will be proactive and enthusiastic, prepared to go the extra mile for our customers and our team, and engaged with our ethos of “Changing People’s Lives”

The ideal candidates will:

- Have relevant retail experience, and a desire to deliver agreed store KPI's through effective one to one relationship selling techniques.
- Have an understanding of the importance of team work and be an active and enthusiastic member of the team.
- Have a passion for our products and our obsession in providing a fantastic shopping experience for our customers.
- Contribute to the delivery of the highest levels of customer service through the active promotion of team work and our brand values.
- Understand that visual presentation of the store and the team is key to ensure that the standards in store represent the premium brand and the teams are fully representative of the brand in their appearance and manner.

Please note:

All of our Sales Assistants/Comfort Specialists may, on occasion, be expected to carry out home consultation visits. Due to the nature of this work and as a responsible employer it is a condition of employment that our retail employees complete a DBS check.
