We may have only just turned our backs on the heatwaves, but that doesn’t mean we’re putting Christmas on the back burner – and neither should you if you’re planning to look for temporary work this festive season. Sometimes referred to as the ‘golden quarter’ in retail circles, October, November and December are the busiest months for luxury retail and travel retail.
Making the most of these months is critical for any retailer, and as the rising cost of living bites in 2022, competition for consumers’ hard-earned cash will be greater than ever. It is therefore vital that luxury retailers have high quality staff in place to attract customers and maximise potential sales.
Our clients are some of the leading high-street and airside retailers, as well as beauty and fashion brands. Many have begun recruiting temporary staffing for this hugely important trading period. So whether you’re looking for your big break in retail or are just looking to earn some extra money this Christmas, now is the time to register your interest and send us your CV.
We always have a wide range of temporary Christmas roles available in retail. But these roles will be in high demand – particularly as we work with many prestigious, well-known brands – and you will need to be registered with us to be considered.
Once you have registered and we have reviewed your CV, if we think you could be a match for our clients, we will invite you in for an interview. If you are successful, our in-house team will provide induction training, take you through grooming guidelines, and provide any specific training required such as product and brand briefings. Understandably, anyone working airside also needs to complete certain mandatory checks to meet the strict security requirements of these areas.
Applying early and getting all interviews, training and checks out of the way now will ensure you’re ready for paid placements well before Santa takes off.
There’s a lot of flexibility when it comes to our temporary Christmas roles, with full-time and part-time retail positions available. If you’re studying, parenting or pursuing other vocations, you can organise your hours and shifts to suit your schedule. In fact, many of our temporary staff are actors, students or beauty therapists looking for paid work to fit in with their other commitments. Being reliable, flexible, motivated and a team player is key – so having a can-do attitude and a passion for helping people is essential.
Obviously, temporary Christmas roles are just for Christmas, but if retail is your passion, a Christmas job can provide you with the perfect opportunity to take your first steps in this highly competitive industry. Retailers are always looking for their future stars. By securing a Christmas job with a prestigious brand, you’ll be in the ideal position to prove your star status as well as make contacts, network with and dazzle the people who might give you the break you need. Many of our biggest success stories started out in temporary work, so we know that doing temporary work gives the right candidates a fantastic chance to kick-start their retail career.
We’re actively hiring for temporary Christmas jobs in retail across the UK. So if you have retail experience and great customer service skills, and are looking for a flexible role, register now and we’ll be in touch to discuss opportunities in your area.
