You will be using the cash register (don't worry we'll show you how!) and handling money.

You will be wielding a duster and vacuum in helping with daily housekeeping and using your imagination in making sure our shops, our displays, our mannequin family look appealing and at their best at all times.

You will be; Punctual, reliable and honest. Good interpersonal and communication skills. Have a good knowledge of basic arithmetic and/or basic cash handling skills.
