At B&Q, we help people create homes to be proud of by giving them the inspiration, the materials and the practical know-how to turn their dreams into a reality. Customers often come into our stores looking for more than tools and materials; they are looking for advice on how best to complete their project.
As one of our Customer Advisors, it’s really important that you are happy to approach and help customers and that you have a genuine passion for home improvement. Talking to someone who can offer confident and relevant advice ensures our customers leave B&Q with a renewed enthusiasm for their home improvement project, and everything they need to get the job done.
As part of our Front End team, you’ll be delivering a helpful, friendly and efficient service ensuring our customers feel confident, valued and at ease when shopping with us, from the time they are greeted upon arrival in store through to the service they receive at our checkouts.
Being willing to learn is essential in the role, but don’t worry if you don’t know your washers from your wood screws at this stage. You’ll be given the right training to build your skills and knowledge of our projects after joining the team.
At B&Q, you’ll be working in a team every day. We need you to be upbeat and proactive interacting with colleagues and customers alike. Our stores are often very large and busy, so being able to multi-task and work unsupervised is a crucial skill for this role.
We need our customer advisors to be flexible about when they work, covering store opening hours on a rota basis, including evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
If you’d like to be out there making a difference to our colleagues and our customers then you may be exactly the kind of person who will feel right at home here. Join us and build a career you can be proud of.
You can do it.
