I have had X years experience as a Sales Assistant working in a fashion footwear background (or whatever background you come from) and I feel that over the years I am continually learning new things from starting with relatively no experience to now assisting my Manager in merchandising the store and ordering new stock from Head Office.
I feel that I am very competent in my work. I like to be competitive in selling and like to do well in promotions and offers in the store, who can sell the most pairs of shoes over a period of time or the most of one style etc, I take this as a real challenge and run with it.
I want to continue my career in Retail Sales and would like to take on more responsibility and experience different stores in terms of size and location for variety. I love working in a fashion company and feel very excited to see the different seasons, the new products and enjoy getting involved in this detail from what sells in the store. I am passionate about fashion and retail and am eager to learn anything I can do and have recently spent some time working alongside the head office teams understanding the buying and merchandising process further which I thoroughly enjoyed.
