Do you fancy kick starting a rewarding career in Retail?
DFS, the UK’s leading sofa retailer are seeking Sales Advisor Apprentices to join their showroom teams!

You don’t need any sales experience, as we can teach you everything. For us, it’s more about your personality and drive to be the best you can be. We’re passionate about developing and growing our own talent to have a long and successful career with us.

As a Sales Advisor Apprentice, you’ll be spending time on the showroom floor where you’ll learn all about DFS products so you can advise customers on products suited to their needs. You’ll spend your time learning each area which will allow you to gain an insight of the business.
As part of the Retail team, you may be required, at times, to cover other stores to support in driving results and excellent customer service for the business.

This role will be flexible over 7 days, including Bank Holidays, to support store requirements and support a greater work-life balance.

You’ll be able to make sure our customers know everything they need to know about all of our products, sharing with them all of your product knowledge and passion.
You’ll also help our customers to pick the perfect products for their homes, ensuring they feel welcome and comfortable when visiting our showroom, giving them the best customer experience possible from start to finish.
