Requirements

  • You’ll have shown your abilities in retail before—that’s why you’ll be confident stepping into the role of Sales and Service Manager. A great communicator, you’ll inspire your team to smash their targets and build great relationships throughout the business. Using retail IT, building rapport and handling customer service issues often all at once, your energy will make you an asset to the team (able to deputise for the manager when required) and you’ll be looking at more senior roles before long.

Responsibilities

  • As a Sales and Service Manager, you’ll set a shining example of customer service and sales performance for your team. Running the shop floor, merchandising and supporting your team, the unique customer experiences you’ll create demonstrate why Clarks stores hold such a special place on the high street for two centuries.
  • You’ll be well rewarded here. First off, you’ll be given a free pair of shoes to wear for work and you’ll receive a discount card that’ll give you a third off on up to a further 20 pairs of Clarks shoes each year. You and your family will also have access to our Employee Assistance Programme which supports wellbeing too.
  • We’re all about career development. You’ll get all the training and encouragement you need to progress. Work with us for a couple of years and you’ll be able to access education grants to help with tuition costs for you and your family.
  • Flexible family leave, employee life cover and maternity/adoption cover—you’ll get great quality of life in return for the great work you do with us. Joining a business that’s serious about meeting its Sustainable Development Goals and donates to the Retail Trust, you’ll be helping build a better future for you, your family and the industry you work in.

Mission & Purpose

It began with a flash of inspiration. It was 1825 in the Somerset village of Street and James Clark was busy working at the tannery owned by his brother, Cyrus. Among the sheepskin rugs, the off-cuts and cast-offs were piling up when James had a brainwave: “Slippers!”. And the rest, as they say, is history. A few stitches and a few years later, the sheepskin slipper was born. It was the very first Clarks shoe and the opening chapter in a remarkable story that continues to unfold to this day. In the decades that have passed since the young Mr. Clark’s eureka moment our shoes have seen social, political and economic revolution. They’ve seen fashions in footwear come and go, and come again – everything from court shoes and winklepickers to wedge heels, sandals and sneakers. They’ve tapped to the beat of crooners, rockers, Britpoppers and hip hoppers. They’ve walked, marched, strode and sashayed through an ever-changing world. New technology, state-of the-art facilities and our love of shoes means we’re not only the number one shoe brand in the UK. With continuing growth in North America, Western and Eastern Europe, India and China, we’re also the world’s largest casual and smart shoe company and the fourth largest footwear company on the planet. We’ve come a long way since Cyrus and James Clark and the ‘Brown Petersburg’. But their vision and passion live on in our shoes. You could say we’re following in their footsteps.
