Retail Sales Consultant - Interiors

Our client is searching for an enthusiastic Retail Sales Consultant, for their modern high-end, luxury showroom in St Albans. They require someone who is confident, articulate and intelligent; someone with impeccable English, who's confident with computers, has a great eye for interior design and a natural ability to communicate. You may have been a senior sales specialist, retail assistant manager, sales floor leader or in a customer first sales role previously.

They don't do pushy sales; they believe their product range sells itself. You'll be an advisor providing guidance both on interior design and technical specifics. They need people who can convey complex principles in a concise manner; people who can give their retail customers the confidence to buy from them and provide the after-sales support too.

Day-to-day retail tasks will include greeting visitors in the luxury boutique showroom in St Albans, answering enquiries by phone and email and providing aftersales service. Preparation of quotes is key to their business and requires some knowledge of building properties and heating principles. Full training will be provided but since their clients are often architects and interior designers, an understanding of architectural plans would be an advantage. It is a retail role and will involve working alternate Saturday's.

We encourage continued professional development and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

Retail Sales Consultant must:
* Be a graduate in any discipline
* Be computer literate with in-depth knowledge of Microsoft Office
* Extremely articulate with a great command of the English language
* Be able to work independently and as part of a team
* Be self-motivated, organised and able to keep track of multiple tasks at once

Retail Sales Consultant ideal candidate would:
* Have experience selling luxury goods in a retail environment
* Have a keen interest in current trends, especially interior design
* Have been trusted to open and close a retail property in a previous role
* Have a background in trade supply or interior design

They offer:
A starting salary up to £27,000 dependent on experience.
An annual performance-related bonus.
20 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays

The position is for a full-time contract at 40 hours per week to include every other Saturday.
