Are You Interested In A Part Time Sales Consultant Job With Phones 4u?
It seems like Phones 4u has been around forever on the British high street, but the company was only actually formed in 1996. They have always had a strong focus on selling to the young market of tech-savvy consumers, so they are naturally a big recruiter from exactly the same demographic of youthful, intelligent, tech-aware people like students.
Phones 4u sells over 1,500 phones every hour and needs over 5,000 members of staff to help them give a great customer service experience to the consumers who choose to buy from them.
The flexible part time sales consultant roles at Phones 4u are perfect for students and other people who have a few hours to spare and want to work with a leading name on the high street. Some knowledge of modern technology is obviously an advantage in these roles, but training in specific products will also be provided by Phones 4u for the right candidates.
As well as earning good money, often a basic salary of £14k pro-rata plus commission, the skills you will pick up in these Phones 4u roles will be transferable across a range of other career types in the future. However, Phones 4u don’t necessarily see these part time positions as temporary jobs – if you are keen and prove your worth in a flexible role then the retailer is more than happy to provide real career development opportunities to strong candidates.
Describing the part time sales consultant roles and explaining the sort of applicants that they are looking for, Phones 4u says:
“As a Sales Consultant in one of our fast pace retail stores or Phones 4u concession store in Currys, building rapport with our customers and ensuring you exceed expectations every time is paramount. With a real drive to hit personal and store sales targets you’ll demonstrate your passion for success at the same time as delivering outstanding Customer Service. You`ll be self-motivated, resilient, confident to approach customers and a great team player.”
Phones 4u has around 700 stores around the UK and has 150 store-within-a-store outlets in Currys/PC World shops as part of their deal with Dixons Retail. They are also adding more new stores on the high street at regular intervals (100 new stores in some years), so there is always a good chance that you can find work with Phones 4u in your area…
New Tech Trial Phones 4u Stores
As testament to Phones 4u’s commitment to selling cutting-edge technology, the company is launching 10 trial stores in Birmingham which will test the market for smart and wearable tech products.
With products like Google Glass and the Sony Smart Band coming to market, Phones 4u are wondering what sort of appetite there is for wearable smart technology and are trying to build a ‘shopping experience’ around similar products called BE.SMART
If the Phones 4u trial stores in Birmingham prove successful then the retailer will roll out more stores across the UK. Eventually there could be around 100 BE.SMART Phones 4u stores dotted around the country, creating even more full and part time sales consultant jobs at the company.
Scott Hooton, Chief Marketing Officer at Phones 4u, said: “The wearable and smart tech market is growing rapidly and we’re focused on embracing the opportunity it represents. We will make best use of our online channels and complimentary in-store teams to help grow consumer understanding of this evolving category, which we believe goes far beyond just ‘wearable’ technology and encapsulates a much wider array of devices that are connected to and controlled by smartphones.”
