A positive and motivated approach will be key when contributing to the Swindon store targets, driving innovative yet effective sales with their range of decorative paints and sundry items.

The Swindon Decorating Centre (DC) is a busy store and plays a pivotal role within their national network, currently made up of 122 DCs.

A key part of your role as the Sales Assistant / Driver will be to identify potential new customers, establish positive relationships and open customer accounts regularly.

Who they are looking for

As part of their journey to excellence they always recruit based on four values that unite them all; Connecting to customers, Constantly challenging, Socially committed, Inspiring confidence. To a large extent their values describe the way they already are, but there is also an element of aspiration, expressing the way they want to be.

They are looking for individuals who possess strong sales experience, ideally within a retail background, evidencing excellent customer service and competence in the delivery of sales targets. A current driving licence and the ability to drive is essential, as the store coordinates a daily delivery service for customers.

A little more about them

They have been manufacturing paint for longer than most, over 200 years in fact, with over 60 years proudly holding the Royal Warrant. It’s fair to say that they know their craft; however, what really sets them apart is the support they provide for cultural, humanitarian and scientific causes across the world.

Alongside their owners, they place a special focus on education for children in need, and are proud to support the education of over 55,000 children across 22 projects worldwide. You can therefore guarantee there at the company – It’s not just paint. It’s personal!

If you think you have the skills, experience and personal qualities they are looking for in their Sales Assistant / Driver, they would love to hear from you.
