I'm too lazy to think of a list myself (and I'm busy redoing my CV) so I'd like the people of TSR make their suggestions. I don't ask and not give anything in return though... The best list will recieve 105 rep points! :woo:

Jobs I'd like:

Places like Topman, Retail Supermarkets, Retail in general cool places...

Well lately i've been seeing all the old Woolworths stores being turned in to Wilkinson stores and they've been recruiting quite a lot

Also at the moment many stores are recruiting for christmas, stores such as game,peacocks,boots,river island, republic etc. (most of the general shopping centre stores).

I did see some Krispy Kreme vacancies the other day :curious:....And also primark in Oxford Street.

edit: Boots is apply online only, as is sainsburys, Marks and Spencers. Also using the Jobcentre site is quite benificial

TBH, you will have the best success from Gumtree jobs. Just check their retail section, it's where I got the most job interviews, and there were loads of places to apply to!

Also, try Debenhams, they seem to be open to giving people without experience a chance.

Should have mentioned I have 5 years work experience in Retail and also in Bars/Clubs. Need a new job because I'm relocating.

With good experience in retail why don't you try applying to somewhere a bit more upmarket than just your regular high-street stores?

Where are you moving to? Can you commute?

I'm not practical in an engineering sense. As a matter of fact, I couldn't find the button to open my bonnet a few days ago :o:

Yes, I know; :getmecoat:

I was thinking of this. Might apply to a few upmarket stores/hotels. I don't really need to commute bacause I'm moving to a big city anyway but I can drive and have my own car which I know many employers like.

I worked at Harvey Nichols for a while and I loved it! Excellent pay and it looks fantastic on your CV.
