Shop around for Glasgow retail jobs

Whether it's casual Saturday work or full-time employment you are looking for, Glasgow retail jobs remain a very busy jobs sector in the city. Glaswegians simply love to shop, and there will always be a demand for smart staff to take their money.

The retail sector in Scotland has consistently outstripped other industries, even during the economic downturn. Retail remains one of Scotland's biggest employment areas, with Glasgow its most important centre.

Start your search with the big online job sites, like s1 Jobs (s1jobs.com) which has a specific section for Glasgow retail jobs. Shop assistants posts tend to be paid around £6.15 per hour. Assistant store managers can expect an annual salary starting at around £13,000, and a store manager will be paid upwards of £23,000.

The specialist site retailjobsinscotland.com doesn't have any more jobs than the other sites, but is worth checking regularly, and it can be beneficial to register for free email alerts.

Gumtree (gumtree.com/glasgow) is good for smaller scale jobs, at boutiques, furniture stores and the like, and for part-time work. Check the classifieds regularly, and apply straight away, as there is plenty of competition for these jobs.

Working for the major supermarkets can involve applying to their head office. For example, Tesco operates a website to deal with applications at tesco-careers.com, and other supermarkets have similar procedures. For jobs as customer assistants though, it is possible to approach the local store directly and speak to management there about possible vacancies.

If the online searches aren't having any success, it's not a complete waste of time to get out on the streets and take the direct approach. In Glasgow, finding retail jobs might be accomplished with a systematic trawl around busy shopping areas like Buchanan Street, Sauchiehall Street, or in malls like Princes Square.
