Recruit London Success

1st May 2015 / Posted by CRP Team

Matalan is opening a flagship store on Oxford Street and they came to CRP’s Recruit London programme for help finding the best new local staff.

Over 120 local candidates have received expert training from New West End Company Workplace Coordinator Isabelle Benard. They learnt about customer services, product knowledge, cross-selling, understanding the retail sector in the West End PLUS how to impress at interview. After they graduated they were put forward for direct second-stage interview with Matalan’s store managers.

Roles available include stock, tills, sales and visual merchandising. Successful candidates should start in early May.

Isabelle will continue to work closely with Matalan’s Area Manager and Retail Learning & Development Manager to explore their internal retail training and look into developing it for their flagship Oxford St branch to help their new staff to continue to develop.
