Every step begins with you
It takes a great team effort to make a Clarks store a success. But retail isn’t just about selling shoes. It’s about providing a fantastic shopping experience – especially during the holiday season. And that’s down to the people that work in our stores. Join us as a Christmas Sales Team Member and you’ll be in the thick of the action, delighting all our customers and helping them find the perfect shoes and gifts for themselves and for others.
In many ways, you’ll be the face of Clarks, welcoming people into your store. You’ll build a rapport with the customer by asking questions about what they want. Then you’ll give great advice to give reassurance and close the sale – maybe suggesting accessories when appropriate. In short, you’ll play an active role in every stage of the end-to-end selling process. With our first-class training, including coaching, observations and product knowledge, you’ll have what it takes to meet targets and performance standards and be the very best you can be. You will also find yourself playing an active role in keeping the store neat and tidy as well as lending a hand in the stockroom.
Good with people and great in a team, you love dealing with customers. You’re never happier than when you’re on the shop floor, getting hands-on with sales. Your natural instinct for people means you know the right moment to make suggestions – and when to let customers make their decision.
An interest in fashion and footwear goes without saying. But it’s also important that you can promote Clarks. A brand ambassador, you champion our products and take pride in being part of a respected global name. Experience in a similar role would help, as would a flexible approach to hours.
Clarks, based in Somerset, England, has been at the forefront of innovative shoemaking since its foundation in 1825, when brothers James and Cyrus Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what the brand does now.
In the Clarks archive of more than 22,000 pairs are shoes that have sparked revolutions and defined generations. From the original Clarks Desert Boot, first designed by Nathan Clark and launched in 1950 to the iconic Wallabee, each design has an instantly recognisable signature - a unique combination of craftsmanship and innovation that make it unmistakably Clarks.
Clarks is a global business operating retail, wholesale, franchise and online channels in over 100 markets worldwide supported by nearly 10,000 employees across the world.
As well as a rewarding career, development opportunities and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a generous holiday allowance and the opportunity to join the company pension scheme.
We love hearing from great people
