Are you a creative person working in Retail? If you enjoy being hands-on with creative projects and are a switched-on retail professional then this opportunity for a Visual Merchandiser may be just the job for you! No previous merchandising experience is required, but you'll need bags of artistic flair and a solid background in retail!

This exciting, lovely opportunity is a permanent, full-time position working 40 hours per week from 9am - 6pm Monday to Friday with occasional weekend work involved too. As the role is based in near Thetford, you'll need your own transport to get there.

The Company

Our client are an impressive, distinctive local brand who stock a wide range of products within their large site. They're an independent firm and have a happy workforce who all enjoy their work and pull together to get the job done!

The Role

This is a hands-on role where you'll primarily be creating impressive product displays from scratch, large and small. You'll need a great deal of creative vision to come up with really eye-catching displays that make customers want to get up close to take a look! We're not looking for a neat, tidy organised style, as with such a wide product range, you should be able to create some magnificently memorable displays. For our client, it's all about creating something inspirational, creating a strong 'lifestyle' image and effectively, creatively curating and promoting various product ranges through amazing visual merchandising.

You'll also be helping out with general retail tasks such as assisting customers, re-stocking, working at the tills and any other duties as part of the team.

The Visual Merchandiser is required to also ensure the store and its departments are always looking their very best. Each area should display its product ranges clearly and safely but should also be enticing to customers too. There will also be the opportunity to provide guidance to colleagues about best visual merchandising practice, combining your knowledge together to create great displays that will help boost sales.

Requirements

Although it'd be great to hear from people with Visual Merchandising experience, none is necessary for this role.

We do require the following skills and experiences:

* Prior retail experience and a good understanding of how to be a successful team player within a busy retail operation

* Great time management, planning and prioritisation skills

* A hands-on creative flair and evidence of this - do you go nuts at Christmas and deck the halls? Send us photos! Perhaps you're in charge of making the dining table look good at dinner parties? Maybe you just have a beautifully decorated home and enjoy creative hobbies? Whatever it is, we need to see that you are confident at making 'things' look beautiful and desirable to others

* Great customer service skills
