There’s nothing quite like being part of the friendly and supportive team at a Screwfix store. Here as a Retail Service Assistant, you’ll really get to know our customers, provide the best service around and learn everything you need to know to enjoy a rewarding career in retail.
Don’t worry if you’ve never worked in retail or with trade tools before. We’ll teach you all you need to know and support you every step of the way. A company people love to work for, we’re more interested in your hard working approach and willingness to roll your sleeves up and play in a big part in our success.
As the friendly face of our Trade Counter, you’ll take great pride in meeting the needs of our customers and providing a service with a smile – no matter how busy you are. You’ll also make a difference both front of house and in the warehouse, stocking shelves and putting orders together to help our customers get the job done. If you share our no-nonsense approach and take pride in a job well done, this is a career where you’ll never stand still. As we’re growing so fast, you’ll be able to go places too.
While you’ll benefit from some experience of retail, sales, cash handling or stock management perhaps gained as a Retail Assistant – it’s not essential. There will always be someone on hand to help. It’s your positive attitude we’re looking for. A natural communicator who gets on with everyone you meet, you should be enthusiastic, polite and always willing to learn something new.
We’re very proud of our diverse team. Our differences make us stronger. But there are some qualities we all share. Friendly, reliable, honest and easy to talk to, we all do our jobs to the best of our abilities with a real smile on our face. Positive and hard working with a good sense of humour, we’re also enthusiastically optimistic with the ability to adapt and flex with our rapidly growing business.
Innovative, successful and growing fast, we’re the UK’s number one supplier to the trade and provide a great service to DIY enthusiasts. We’re also part of Kingfisher plc, Europe’s leading DIY home improvement retailer with £10.8bn annual revenue and over 80,000 employees.
But what’s it really like to work here? The pace is fast and the standards are high. We work very hard to meet the needs of our customers and be even more successful. But make no mistake, we also like to have fun, muck in and support each other. As our people make all the difference, we believe in promoting from within, which is why a career at Screwfix can really take you places.
We really value all of our people, so you’ll receive a competitive salary and a wide range of rewards including 28 days’ holiday (increasing to 33) and our award-winning company pension scheme. As well as excellent training and ongoing development, you’ll also benefit from life cover, childcare vouchers, 20% discount with Screwfix and B&Q and discounted healthcare and company Sharesave schemes.
