In my last job I was responsible for travelling round the stores and maintaining staff momentum. I addressed any staff issues and recommended training if it was required. I monitored staff's approach to the customer and advised and supported employees.
I looked at the sales figures and devised ways in which sales output could be improved through;
• Devising advertising campaigns
• Shop layout and displays
• Staff approach/Service
• Discussions with staff and Director
I addressed shop presentation such as external and internal décor including health and safety issues i.e. broken handles or display shelving
Since I worked for JGC Stores:
• Sale figures increased by 10%
• Staff satisfaction improved
• Sickness figures went down
• I implemented a reliable stock control method
• Shelf losses reduced by 5%
• Staff delivered a more professional approach
• Customer satisfaction improved
