We specialise in the supply of all types of retail staff from Store Manager, Assistant Store Manager, Retail Assistants, Shop Assistant, Customer Service representative, General Administrator, Stock Controller, Department Head, Store Layout Designer, Display Specialist, Product Specialist, Procurement staff, etc.
As the saying goes, 'people still buy from people' and when high-street retailers are competing with the extremely competitive online marketplace, meeting sales staff who are well presented, polite, understanding and helpful can mean the difference between a sale and the customer going somewhere else.
In reference to sales staff, we look for people who can up-sell and cross-sell and have a pleasant disposition who will motivate customers in the right way in order to make a sale.
We have tried and tested systems in place to attract, screen and prepare a wide range of candidates to work at your store / facilities, whether they be temporary, contract or permanent.
We also operate a standby pool policy whereby if someone doesn't turn up for work, we will have that position covered in a very short space of time. We have candidates on standby and check availability on a weekly basis.
It is our policy to meet every candidate in person. For temporary workers we register each candidate and check experience and competences through interview.
Candidates attending our offices for perm and contract roles are registered and then interviewed against each job specification, provided to us by the client.
All candidates will be sourced from within the local area to the site where they will work. Our experience shows this works more effectively and has proved to deliver more reliable and consistent productivity.
For all workers supplied, we will check candidate identity, proof of their right to work in the UK and proof of their address. Where possible we will apply online tests to check, skills, knowledge and experience as a future predictor of performance in the job.
If you have a company specific test which you would like us to conduct on your behalf as a benchmark standard, then we could also do that for you.
We believe that all workers supplied through Peter Knight Recruitment Ltd should be relevant, well presented and be thoroughly briefed. If we are not fully convinced by the candidate, then we will not put that candidate forward to you for consideration.
As a quality control check we will also take up 2 references from the last 3 years work history and seek reasons for gaps in employment.
