Retail Sales Consultant - Loupe, Croydon
Hours | 40 hours per week, permanent contract
Salary | £9.10 per hour plus bonuses
As Sales Consultants at Lyons, we’re here to build long-term relationships with our clients, based on trust, integrity and care, and to passionately sell exceptionally fine jewellery, breath taking diamonds and the world’s finest watch brands.
To create moments that will last a lifetime. For every client, every time.
Every single day holds the promise of a moment you’ll never forget.
This is an ideal role for anyone looking to join a growing jewellery retailer that has recently taken the top spot in the prestigious 100 Best Companies to Work For list 2021! We are officially the Best Company to Work For in the UK and we’re beyond proud.
It means knowing how to encourage love and appreciation for our products. So it means knowing each one of them and what makes it special.
It means knowing how to display and present those products in a way that lights up client’s eyes as they pass our windows and once they’re in store too.
It also means listening to clients to understand their needs and price ranges, too. How much they would like to spend for something really special. And how you can help them find that.
And it means seeing client’s eyes light up when we help them find the perfect item. Gifts for friends, family and loved ones. People treating themselves to something special. Engagements, weddings, birthdays and Christmases.
Make no mistake, there's a lot to learn. About the products, the people and our culture. After all we’re jewellers, not cashiers.
And be prepared for accountability. Truth is, you’re going to have to work hard if you want to keep up. But, believe us, you’ll want to keep up.
We’re realistic about people’s goals. That’s why our sales targets are always based on the last year’s achievements. We let you know how well you’re doing so you can grow your skills and help grow the business. And so we can reward you properly when you do even better.
The Ideal Candidate
As for you, well, your passion for the client experience is only equalled by your down-to-earth approach. And you’ll love working with colleagues who share the same values and commitment to amazing service as you.
You’re the kind of person who knows the value of listening to clients. Who’s open and honest with them. Who likes to turn the everyday into the extraordinary.
Maybe you’ll have some merchandising experience to enhance your ability to create the extraordinary. We’ll train you if not, but one thing’s for sure… you’ll certainly have a great eye for detail and what good looks like.
And you not only have a brilliant instinct, but also an understanding that you’re going to have to put plenty in to get out what you want. That’s what makes you truly unique.
