From November 2013
I have been working within retail since November 2013. This is my first period of employment, though I have worked on a part-time basis in the past delivering newspapers within my local community.
Since gaining employment in retail I have amassed a number of skills in the sales working environment. This has included working directly with the public, engaging with them while they carry out shopping tasks. In order to be best positioned to support the customer with their choices, I have had to learn about products that we are selling and be able to assist the customer with any enquiries that they may have. To assist with this, I have carried out some independent research into the market brands and this has sharpened my ability to help the customer, as I have been able to provide a balanced, informed opinion of the sales items available and past history of products.
Working directly with the public has been a rewarding experience, and I consider that my ability to engage across a wide spectrum of society has proven to be an asset to my employer. In a shopping environment you can be working with a whole range of different people and this can place you in positions that can be both rewarding and challenging. I consider that I hold a good set of values and feel able to work in challenging situations. My calm nature assists me in these positions and helps reach positive outcomes where difficulties present themselves.
While undertaking my School based work placement I gained a weeks experience working with children in their final year of Primary education. Again, this was a rewarding experience and one that I consider to have been accomplished successfully. One particularly successful input was when I carried out a talk on the transition for Primary to High school.
