  • Company uniform.

Beneficial Experience

• You will be asked to keep detailed records and notes, and must be able to operate effectively under pressure whilst dealing with frequent interruptions.
• Be able to work as part of a team. In a 7 days a week business we need to seamlessly pass the baton between team members, so that our customers receive a "joined-up" service - this requires excellent communication skills.
