Debenhams has a number of Christmas jobs on offer.

The new flagship store, in Watford, is on the hunt for 50 new members of staff.

The colleagues will work on the sales floor during the store’s busiest times including Black Friday, Christmas and the Boxing Day sales. Successful applicants will start mid-November and work until the beginning of January.

Tony Hurley, store manager at Debenhams Watford store, said: “Christmas is our busiest time of year. We begin planning months before the festivities start to make sure we deliver the high level of service that customers expect from Debenhams.

"Our sales colleagues play an important role in not only helping shoppers find the right item but also making sure that they have an enjoyable experience instore – they are a vital part of making sure that everyone has the best Debenhams experience possible.”

The retailer is keen to hear from candidates who want to join a great team, have a strong ‘can-do’ approach and are eager to learn the ropes. Previous retail experience is not essential – in fact, Debenhams has looked to the hospitality industry more recently for skills, experience and candidates that are fun, sociable and have a genuine love of shopping.
