Why find London retail assistant jobs with Staff Heroes?

If you love the buzz of retail, we’re about to make you a busy bee. The retail jobs find you! With Staff Heroes, there’s always another shift waiting for you – and you don’t have to spend time searching for it.

What makes a temporary retail assistant a Hero?

Big on service: Every Staff Heroes client is looking for retail sales assistants who deliver exceptional customer service. But what does that actually mean? Well, for us, exceptional starts the moment the customer walks through the door and keeps delivering until they’ve bought and left. It’s a warm and genuine smile. It’s the eagerness to help and the knowledge to find the most relevant products. It’s the willingness to do those little extras that make such a difference. And it’s the ability to build rapport fast so that customers are more likely to return.

Measuring the mood: There’s something every exceptional retail assistant in London needs, in addition to the above traits. They need to understand the right time and place to put that service into practice. Yes, you could be willing and able to spend an hour with a customer so they find exactly the right product. You could blast them with all the product knowledge in your head. But if they’re in a rush, what they really want is someone who recognises that smart, speedy service is what’s required. Out Staff Heroes pick up on verbal and non-verbal cues, to deliver exceptional service, appropriately.

The sales assistant: The clue is in the title. A sales assistant in London has targets to hit, so you’ll need to spot and seize opportunities. That means looking for the right moment to upsell and cross-sell, achieving the sale in a manner that’s always appropriate, never pushy.

Retail Sales Assistant jobs in London Q&A

Yes, that’s the big difference between Staff Heroes and other recruitment services. While others focus on the full time, we specialise in the temporary, casual and part time. And because we work exclusively in London, you’ll find a huge range of shift patterns and hours available to suit all kinds of lifestyles.

That’s your choice. You’ll be offered shifts with a range of retailers. You choose which ones to accept and the more you do, the faster you’ll build your track record of being a busy and reliable Staff Hero (which will ensure even more shifts come your way).

We don’t have a single standard Staff Hero. They come to us for a host of reasons. Some are students looking to earn money between studies. Some are people who already have jobs, but want a flexible way to earn more when they need it. Some are retirees looking for new opportunities. And some are people whose other commitments mean that a full time permanent job isn’t for them right now – but Staff Heroes gives them the freedom to work when they can.
