Christmas is a busy and exciting time for Debenhams and in order to provide our customers with the best possible service we need some extra help in the coming months. This temporary role offers you the chance to experience the buzz and variety that comes with working in retail at our busiest time of year.
Debenhams Stock Movement Assistants play a vital role in our store teams to ensure our products are ready and available for our customers. They have a logical and organised approach towards ensuring the safe transition of our stock from delivery through to the sales floor. Often operating behind the scenes they are dedicated to making sure the shop floor remains well stocked and quickly replenished, processing the deliveries that arrive daily.
Our Stock Movement Assistants are calm yet adaptable and flexible to the ever changing demands and priorities that this role operates within.
From the arrival of our deliveries you will support the unloading, sorting, tagging and sizing of stock in preparation for its arrival to the shop floor as well as using our in house technology to identify and record the required products.
They promote a positive and willing approach towards product availability and presentation, ensuring all sizes, colours and styles are available for our customers to buy. Using your extensive knowledge of our products, services and online ordering opportunities you will take responsibility for customer queries when on the shop floor, helping find the best possible solution for our customers.
You will be required to identify stock discrepancies or damages when processing our products and deliveries therefore a strong attention to detail and accuracy is essential. Working within this environment you will require an awareness of security at all times to ensure our stock room remains a safe environment for all staff. You will be required to demonstrate an understanding of health and safety and manual handling guidelines which you will apply when climbing ladders or lifting heavy items.
Please consider the above criteria carefully before starting your application, as when recruiting it’s important to us that we are the right choice for you, as well as you being the right choice for us. We believe it is the people we employ that make the difference to our customers shopping experience. Our people take pride in what we do, what we sell and the standards we expect. They are passionate about working with Debenhams and care about doing their very best for every customer.
The opening hours of our stores are extended for late night shopping at least 1 night a week therefore you will need to be flexible in regards to working hours to accommodate the later trading. All of our teams will be required to work some of our most important trading dates which include 8th/9th, 15th/16th, 22nd/23rd December, Christmas Eve, Boxing Day , New Years Eve and New Years Day*. (*excluding Scotland)
Christmas starts early in retail especially for our stock movement teams therefore you will need to be available to work in this store from September through to end of December.
