Debenhams is searching for 430 retail and hospitality staff to fill a range of roles at its Oxford Street flagship, which is currently undergoing substantial redevelopment.

Following the £25million refurbishment, the new flagship will represent the best Debenhams has to offer, and will reinforce the West End’s position as an international shopping destination.
 
Successful candidates for the job vacancies will be expected to deliver the highest standards of customer service and will undergo training to offer optimum product knowledge.

“This is an opportunity to help deliver an exceptional retail experience in a fantastic new environment,” says Mike Goring, retail director at Debenhams. “Our new store on Oxford Street will set the standard in the UK as well as becoming a symbol for our international expansion.”

“These jobs are sure to be welcomed by Londoners interested in a retail career, having witnessed a great deal of job losses in the sector over the past year,” he adds.

There are 150 roles available in three new hospitality areas – a new restaurant, cafĂ© and lounge bar are all being re-designed in line with the store’s fresh look. The remaining 280 positions are sales roles across all new-look departments including Debenhams’ biggest ever Beauty hall, more Designer departments than ever before over three floors of fashion, and a new destination for women – the retailer’s biggest ever shoe hall and lingerie department.

Included within the sales roles are Christmas temporary positions for which customer-focused staff will have the opportunity to take on flexible working hours between November and January.

“These jobs offer families the flexibility they need while also giving first-jobbers the opportunity to get valuable retail experience under their belt,” says Goring.
