Temporary Summer Staff

 We have a thriving schoolwear uniform business, fitting out pupils for over 30 schools in the local area.  As you can imagine, we are extremely busy during the school summer holidays, with children visiting us to buy their new uniforms for either the new school that they are about to go to or for pieces they have just outgrown.

 This is a big operation and we take on up to 20 additional staff to help the system run smoothly.  We have vacancies on the shop floor and in the warehouse.  We are looking for people who enjoy meeting and advising customers and can work with all ages in an environment which, at times, can become extremely busy.

 In return we offer a friendly environment and along with your basic pay we offer a free car park and staff clothing.  Our preference is that no holidays are taken, with the exception of one or two days and we will pay for any untaken holiday at the end of your employment with us.

 We would expect new employees to start mid to late June and work through until the all pupils have returned to school at the beginning of September.  Our shop opening hours are 9 – 6, Tuesday to Saturday although some of the positions are for early and late shifts.

 If you are interested in working for us this summer please contact Susan Ashford; - recruitment@coes.co.uk with your CV and a covering letter stating why you would like to work for us.

 Interviews will be held during April and May.
