What's this about?
Whether you fancy selling a brand of cars, to dealing with fresh produce in a supermarket, or working in a high street bank, there are lots of opportunities to work face to face with the public providing goods and services.
These jobs can be at all levels and often provide flexible working and part time opportunities too.
There are also lots of careers working in a company’s head office. For example a fashion company employs designers, buyers, merchandisers, marketing and advertising people as well as people working in finance, recruitment and IT.
Although there has been a move away from people buying on the high street to buying online, there are still many people employed in retail.
Good communication skills are vital in the retail sector.
