Christmas at Jarrolds is like no other retailer - we are a family business and have been at the beating heart of Norwich for 200 hundred years now, so we know a thing or two about how this fine city celebrates Christmas! We’re just decking the halls, trimming the tree and putting the final touches on the most wonderful time of the year.

A truly magical atmosphere builds in our stores throughout the festive season and our sales colleagues are at the heart of it, being the first point of contact with our customers and therefore ambassadors for the Jarrolds brand. They are always at the ready, putting smiles on people’s faces, helping them find the perfect gift and most importantly showing support and care for each other, whatever the day brings.

As a Sales Assistant your job will be to create memories for everyone who visits our store in the run up to Christmas. It isn’t all about previous work experience, it is about being able to connect to customers and live our values.

There are a range of roles across our Sales teams – from Toys, Books, Food and Christmas Decorations to Customer Services and Beauty.

To be a successful Christmas Sales Assistant at Jarrolds you will:

  • Always offer fast and friendly service.
  • Show enthusiasm for engaging with customers and helping them find what they need.
  • Be reliable and flexible, able to adapt to the challenges that vary from day to day.
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment, keeping calm and efficient, even on our busiest days.

In return we offer a generous colleague discount, free car parking and bicycle storage, contributory pension scheme, employee wellbeing assistance programme and much more.

If you would like to join us in creating some Christmas Magic, please apply by submitting your CV and a covering letter. You’ll only need to make one application to be considered for a Christmas position.
