Jobs and Careers - Hilary Devey 2013 - (Page 154)

THE SELLING POINT D The retail industry is vast, and ever-growing – so if you’re looking for variety, stop window-shopping and invest in a retail career epartment stores, supermarkets, online boutiques: the retail industry has never been so diverse. Accounting for around 10% of all UK employment, it’s a major part of our economy and, despite recessions, looks set to continue to thrive. When it comes to career paths in the retail industry, options are manifold. From apprenticeships to graduate programmes, everyone is welcome – especially those who are online-savvy (owing to the growth of online retail platforms). This diversity and sheer breadth of people defines the retail environment itself – which of course is all about people, like you and me. As the old adage dictates ‘the customer always knows best’ and, with that motto in mind, climbing the rungs of the retail career ladder will prove less of a mad trolley dash and more of a structured shopping spree.
