Berkshire Retail recruitment agency listing

The retail industry is one of the most important to the UK and despite the recession of 2008, contributes around £500 million to the economy. Retail is responsible for roughly 10% of the UK workforce and is supported by recruitment agencies who look to find the most capable retail staff for their clients. Recruiters will source staff for positions such as sales assistant and stock controller to fill permanent or temporary vacancies.

 

 

Retail doesn't have high entry requirements and is largely considered as one of the less intensive fields of work to enter. The average salary for the sector tends to be around £26K although this can vary greatly depending on particular job title. An area manager or buyer can potentially make in excess of £40K a year, whilst store staff or sales assistants seldom make more than £20K. Due to the nature of the industry and demographic of its workers, retail is accountable for more part time jobs than any other sector. Other roles might include retail manager, store detective and HR officer.

 

The average retail salary in Berkshire exceeds that of the national average with employees expected to earn more than £30K. Due to the current high vacancy rates but also the predicted high levels of growth, Berkshire is considered a future retail 'hot spot' with employment opportunities set to rise accordingly.

 

There are currently very few job roles in the retail industry that require a university degree, with even managers not having been expected to go on to further education. This being said, many big retailers offer graduate schemes and in this case, qualifications in finance, HR or IT may be necessary. Further qualifications could be needed in future if the industry continues to become technologically driven. Other relevant skills to work in the industry include good verbal communication, ability to work weekends and initiative.
