The British Retail Consortium has launched Rethink Retail, a careers guidance website.
This includes stories from such retailers as Asos, Sainsbury’s, The John Lewis Partnership, McDonald’s, Boots and Superdrug. Helen Dickinson, Chief Executive of the British Retail Consortium, says: “There has never been a more exciting time to get into retail. New technology and changing consumer behaviour mean that retail is constantly having to innovate to retain and gain customers. The expanding role of digital in shopping has given rise to thousands of new jobs in data science, web design, behavioural analytics and more.”
“Rethink Retail aims to dispel the traditional idea that a career in retail is limited to stacking shelves. Our new website offers dozens of case studies showing the interesting amazing opportunities for career progression that exist.”
