Jewellery & Watch Retailers Begin to Invest in Experienced Christmas Staff

Jewellery Stylist, the UKs leading jewellery and watch recruitment agency, have already begun to assist Jewellery & Watch retailers to recruit experienced staff to join their business over the Christmas period.

London, United Kingdom, September 17, 2009 --( “Retailers have already begun to focus on their recruitment for the festive period” says Jewellery Stylist's Senior Recruitment Coordinator, Angela Pugliese.

“It is impressive to see that this year, retailers are really acknowledging the importance of Christmas trading and the fundamental effects of this period on their yearly performance”. “As a result we are delighted to be working with fantastic jewellery and watch companies, in key preparation for their busiest period!”

Demonstrating their thorough understanding of the Jewellery and Watch markets, that they have become renowned for, Jewellery Stylist insist that Christmas is an excellent opportunity to maximise sales and increase productivity. “This is such an important sales opportunity, that implementing inexperienced temporary staff, with lack of product knowledge and less than impressive customer service skills, is a serious hindrance on the sales floor” added Angela.

“The benefits of employing staff with industry knowledge and skills, will endeavor to fulfill the goals set over Christmas, to increase the turnover by really getting as much value out of a sale as possible.”

With some retailers experiencing a tough year so far, retail analysts are predicting that many are seeking Christmas as an opportunity to regain their losses against the year so far.

When asked how quickly experienced staff can make an impact on a business, Angela added “During this period, time is of the essence, with clients needing advice and recommendation, retailers will need staff that have the ability to explain features and benefits, justifying price tags and linking these with an emotive context to encourage the client to buy.” “These factors are not taught in a day, and really only come with experience." "This fact alone is why jewellery and watch retailers are seeking to recruit temporary staff with experience in a similar role, ready to hit the ground running, understanding what they are explaining to a client rather than being a ticket reader!”

Such candidates are difficult to recruit over the Christmas period, but by using specialist recruitment agencies, this should not be a problem for recruiters. With jewellery and watch retailers often seeing more than 35% of their annual turnover taken over the Christmas period, this is the most important time to get temporary staffing more accurate than ever before, as missing out on opportunities to clinch sales puts retailers at a severe disadvantage not only financially, but from a customer loyalty perspective too.

Jewellery Stylist recruits for even the most difficult to fill positions, so, no matter what your business structure, Jewellery Stylist can assist in creating fantastic staff for a profitable and successful Christmas Trading Period.
