  • Ensuring the store is properly merchandised and ready for business.
  • Completing all the necessary administration associated with pre and post sales activity.

  • To be confident, positive and pro-active in attitude at all times.
  • To have had previous sales experience.
  • To be very comfortable using the telephone.
  • To be proficient using computers (ideally with the Microsoft Office Suite, including Excel, Word, Access)
  • To be a highly motivated individual, able to work on his or her own, and also as part of a team.
  • To be a confident, positive, enthusiastic and outgoing at all times.
  • To be a clear communicator and to have clarity of expression whether dealing with members of the public or members of Windows’ staff.
