What we’re looking for
You don’t need to have worked in retail sales before. And you certainly don’t need to know all about tiles or DIY. If you’re the sort of person who’ll go above and beyond to deliver outstanding customer service, if you’re a quick learner and a team player, we’d love to hear from you (and we have the training you need to soon become a product specialist Sales Assistant).
Part of a small store team, you’ll inspire customers and help them to find just what they’re looking for and do everything you can to make their tiling project happen. You’ll be quick to get to the heart of every customers’ needs – whether it’s flooring for a first home or a trade tile purchase – and find solutions that fit their requirements brilliantly. (So you know, internally at Topps Tiles, our Sales Assistants are known as Service Specialists.)

Great team player? Real people person? Someone who loves helping others? Check, check and check. As well as being passionate about customer service, you’ll need:
- The ability to communicate well with colleagues and customers
- A confident and professional manner in dealing with a variety of different customer situations
- Ability to work co-operatively with others
- Enthusiasm and a positive ‘can-do’ attitude
- Ability to engage and inspire customers through questioning and listening skills
- Previous experience as a Sales Assistant or working in retail sales would be a bonus
- Flexibility to cover store opening hours including weekends, and work in alternative locations if required. (But we only expect you to work daytime hours – no evenings and no Christmas Eve or Boxing Day either.) What we’ll do for you
- Then there’s a generous staff discount for our Sales Assistants, a Share Save scheme, pension and life assurance, a holiday allowance that increases with length of service and a wide range of other benefits. We’re committed to promoting talent from within too, which means you’ll be well-supported to build a rewarding career with an individual development plan and lots of training on offer.
- In a culture where hard work is recognised and great results are rewarded, you can look forward to uncapped personal commission and company bonus schemes that will give you a share of our success and substantially increase your base wage.
