    This is my first time using this forum so sorry for any mistakes. Anyways, coming p I have work experience and I want to find my own placement. However I am interested into retail but want to find somewhere that will allow more than one job (e.g.. tills, stock etc.) What stores do this sort of stuff?

    Try charity shops as they will generally have you do a bit of everything (I've worked in 2) and also may take you on as a volunteer after which would be a good experience. Supermarkets also, also I'm not sure where you live but how about places like theme parks? I know the one I worked out took some work experience placements in retail and other departments.

    Best of luck!

    Yes, where I worked it was a Church run shop so I did tills, stocking, pricing up items, making tea and coffee, everything! Was a lovely atmosphere but I can't speak for every charity shop obviously.
