In the days of the brick-and-mortar store, the hiring strategy for retailers focused predominantly on recruiting sales assistants and temporary workers to manage increases in demand around peak periods.
Since then, however, the retail landscape has changed considerably. Due to technological advancements, mobile devices, changes in customer demand, and the growth of ecommerce, retailers are having to reassess their approach to service delivery and at the same time, acquire new staff to help manage all these aspects.
As a result, retailers are no longer just recruiting for sales and management roles, but also for specialist, technical and data-orientated roles.
Retail marketers, data analysts, customer experience managers, and much, much more are increasingly sought after. Subsequently, the whole approach to retail recruitment has changed. What was previously demand-driven is now growth-driven as retailers look to employ more staff on a long-term basis to help drive business growth and succeed in the future.
But finding these new retail job opportunities are difficult, especially if you do not know where to look. The retail industry might be one of the largest employers in the UK, but what if you want more than a sales assistant role?
