We are a financially secure company and so offer the right candidate job security. It is rare that job openings come up within our company, as our staff tend to stay with us.  We find ourselves now looking for our newest team member to support the management team with administration of our busy carpet department.

    The Ideal Applicant…

    We are looking for a full time member of staff to carry out a largely administrative function to aid the running of our carpet department, where we carry Lincolnshire’s largest carpet stocks.  You should be a naturally organised, and efficient person with a good eye for detail.

    The role is varied and working in the showroom and office involves some direct customer contact.  Typically you would be involved in the day to day operational administration directly assisting the management team, organising stock replenishment, liaising with customers, builders and carpet fitters, booking fittings,  customer service duties, overcoming issues and generally helping to aid with our smooth running.  The successful applicant should have a friendly, can do, attitude and outlook, as being a small company, we require someone flexible to fit well within our team.  In return you will be working in a really nice small friendly environment, a place where you can really feel that you belong when you come to work.

    The successful applicant should be I.T. Proficient, although on the job training to use our in house retail software and systems would be given.  A willingness to learn and adapt and a good eye for detail, efficiency and organisation skills are required.

    You should have confidence in dealing with a variety of people from customers to salespeople and you should be commercially aware, energetic, with a hands on approach.  Applicants are required to be proactive and have the ability to work both on their own initiative, but also as part of a team, excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills are essential.

    So if you have the enthusiasm, friendly personality and passion to help our carpet superstore continue to run efficiently, you could be just the person we are looking for to join our friendly team.
