£10.00 per hour -18yrs and over

Lakeland has been around for more than 50 years because our products are a cut above the rest. And our colleagues are the same. Work with us and you’ll be joining a team with a passion for sharing the joy that our products bring. Already a Lakeland customer? You’ll understand what we mean. There’ll be the support of a great team so you can focus on getting our customers excited about the little things that make our exclusive ranges unrivalled. You’ll also be in for some great benefits including some amazing colleague discounts - just remember to share your love of our products with each customer you meet!

About you : We are looking for a Retail Colleague (that’s our name for a Retail Assistant at Lakeland) and as a Retail Colleague you won’t just be helping customers visiting our store - you’ll be bringing a bit of theatre to the retail experience with your special brand of enthusiasm. You’ll be someone who not only loves our products but who lives them in their daily life: who might use our utensils to prepare breakfast before going to work, sell them all day, and then use them again at home in the evening. Armed with this kind of lived-in knowledge, our Retail Colleagues bring our products to life for our customers so they can see their unique benefits for themselves. As you may have gathered, this isn’t a role for those who want to mind their own business and blend into the background - we want people for whom all the store’s a stage and who will put our products in the lead role. If that’s you, this is your big break.

Who we are : F rom humble beginnings as a tight-knit family operation, we’ve grown into a prestigious kitchenware retailer with 63 stores nationally, from Aberdeen to Truro. We’ve done that by always staying ahead of the pack and looking at things in our own way. When the home freezing boom happened in the 70s, we anticipated a kitchenware revolution. Now, we’re investing millions to ensure that our online offering is top notch, and that our retail stores can offer an experience worthy of a visit. That innovative spirit coupled with our intense customer focus has been the story of our success - work with us and it could be yours too.

Benefits : There are many benefits to being part of the Lakeland team. Other than being part of a huge and happy working family, our colleagues are rewarded with a competitive salary, discretionary bonus scheme and a group personal pension plan.

There are 29 days’ paid holiday (including bank holidays) and generous discounts on our products. We offer a great retail environment, and the chance to be part of a team who like to work and socialise together.
