This apprenticeship provides an ideal stepping stone into a career in Retail.
Retail at Vodafone
Everything we do starts with our customers, so a career in Vodafone retail is your opportunity to get involved with one of the most important parts of our business and help us bring people together around great technology. We do more than simply sell products and services; we help people feel free to live their lives their way.
About the role
Our Retail Advisers have one thing in common – they genuinely want to help customers get the most out of their technology. Some customers know exactly what they want. Others don’t know where to start. You’ll connect with them by asking the right questions. Listening and then explaining things in just the right way, above everything – you’ll just be your brilliant self.
You’ll be building a rapport with customers and talking about the product or service in relation to how it benefits them and not just its features.
We’ll teach you key sales techniques to understand and sell to customers’ needs and how to sell ethically & responsibly.
What we will be looking for in you
Joining Vodafone means we’ll support and encourage you every step of the way here. If you have sales and retail experience – great – but don’t worry if you don’t – what’s most important is your attitude and drive to deliver personal & store targets through a brilliant customer service – we can train you in everything else.
We’re looking for people who are excited about providing great customer service and want to pursue a career in Retail.
It’s important that you are a great listener and communicator – as that’s what excellent service is all about.
So our apprentices need to be enthusiastic and motivated in everything they do. You’ll be a team player and have a real passion for making a difference, both in your development and within the business.
This role also requires someone who has a flexible attitude to working hours, as being a Retail Adviser requires you to work in the store at different times.
Bring all of that, and you can look forward to a competitive salary along with stacks of other great benefits and discounts. All this and you’ll get a formally recognised qualification when you complete your 12 month apprenticeship.
You need to be 18 years or over on 1st Sept 2018 and match the following requirements:
· A minimum of GCSEs in Maths and English at grade G or above, or an equivalent level qualification
· Have lived in the EU for 3 years or more and have the right to work
We have vacancies available in the following locations:
Essex and Herts
