A typical retail entry role at a Clarks’ store would probably see you slipping into a sales team member vacancy. In this sort of position, where you will be dealing with the public on a regular basis, you should highlight all of your skills and experience in the customer service area in the very first stages of your application. As the Clarks’ careers website says:
“As a Sales Team Member, you’ll make sure that every customer has a warm welcome and a great first impression of the store. Starting with a smile. You’ll talk to customers and, when they need help, you’ll be only too happy to help them. You’ll get the shoes they want for them and then, when the customer’s ready, take them up to the till. Friendly and professional and polite, from start to finish.”
If you can keep the customers coming back for more in your new job as a sales team member at Clarks, then you could move up through the retail ladder to become a team leader, store manager - and, in time, even area management or regional sales management.
