Nutshell: we're obsessed with shoes! You'll find us previewing, blabbering & generally getting excited about them!
Back in 1981 schuh opened its first store in the North Bridge Arcade, Edinburgh. Since then schuh has grown significantly and now has a retail network of schuh stores spanning over mainland UK and ROI. Today schuh still operates under its original philosophy:
To provide aspirational but accessible fashion footwear, sold in a unique and exciting retail environment at prices which represent value for money and sold by friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Schuh is at the leading edge of the UK fashion footwear industry and is widely recognised as one of the most innovative independent footwear retailers, not only on the high street but online too. With over 100 brands in stock schuh has something for everyone with a passion for fashion footwear.
schuh is one of the UK and Ireland's biggest fashion footwear retailers with stores up and down the country, as well as a hugely successful transactional website. We are simply obsessed with shoes and if you've landed here, we're guessing you might be too!
So you’re interested in joining us? We’re flattered! Guess you wanna know what kind of person we’re looking for...
We need you to be a bubbly, chatty sort. It’s not that we’re shy - on the contrary, we love a good chat and our perfect match needs to too! First impressions count and the face of schuh is a cheerful one who likes to make other people smile too! In fact, we believe this so much that we value a good person with a sunny disposition over experience. So, even if you’ve never worked in retail, don’t be put off!
We’re looking for someone whose values are similar to ours. Well, it just wouldn’t work otherwise, would it?
We’re looking for someone who works hard and finds the fun in it. Shirkers need not apply! It goes without saying that amazing customer service has to be something you’re passionate about. Whether it’s the way you treat your customers or taking one for the team, we believe in treating others as we’d like to be treated and our perfect match should feel that way too.
We love people who strive to be the best they can be and who take pride in what they do. Whether it’s making sure your section of the shop looks the BEST, unpacking the delivery quicker than you did last time or being the friendliest and most efficient cashier ever. We’ve got a thing for a bit of ambition, so even if the right vacancy for you isn’t up here just now, keep your eye out – you never know what might change!
We love music, bungee jumping and crocheting. But if we loved all the same things, it would be dull wouldn’t it so we can’t wait to hear what you’re into. However, it does help if you have an interest in shoes and fashion. They’re what we’re all about after all! It doesn’t matter to us if fashion for you is following the latest trends or treading your own path – after all, variety is the spice of life!
Let’s put it out there – we’re greedy. We collect people. Good people. We’ve got lots already but, like a kid in a sweet shop, we always want more! And whilst we love to get new good people in, we like to grow our own too. We get folk in, start ‘em as a part timer, a full timer, a Deputy, whatever level, a bit of water, sunshine and food and we’ve grown another schuh Manager.
The thing is, we really do like to nurture our people and, while we can’t really guarantee you sunshine (this is the UK, ROI & Jersey after all), we will make sure that, whatever level you join us at, you get plenty of on the job training. Not only that but, if you behave, we’ll even let you out on training courses and workshops too.
Vacancies crop up all over the country and at all levels. Keep your eyes peeled….
