Our Watford store will offer a new and exciting concept for Debenhams with fabulous offerings that set us aside from our other stores. Working within this store will provide you with great opportunities to really boost your career. It’s going to be an amazing experience and we want you to be a part of it!
Debenhams are on a mission to make shopping confidence-boosting, sociable and fun.
That’s why we want every customer that comes into our store to leave feeling an inch taller, a bit happier, and a little more confident than when they arrived.

We want to be famous for delivering that unique Debenhams experience – and this starts with our people and the way we all work together.

What you'll be doing...




We are excited to be opening a new store in Watford and are looking for a Maintenance Person to support the store team to ensure that the store is a safe working environment. Providing technical advice to management, staff and external parties, you will also carry out statutory and Company routine testing of equipment/machinery and ensure that the store complies with all Health and Safety legislation.






What you will bring...




You will be a highly proactive individual who has a logical and organised approach, good communication skills and the ability to manage shifting priorities. You should be confident working with equipment, have an excellent knowledge of Health and Safety matters and have good DIY/handyperson skills.  Heavy lifting can be involved, you should also feel comfortable climbing ladders and working at heights. You must also be PC literate and have a good level of electrical knowledge.




You will need to be able to plan and implement ongoing maintenance programmes within the store whilst liaising with external contractors if required, carry out risk assessments in accordance with Health and Safety policy and give guidance and support on any related issues.








When you'll be doing it...




Our stores are open 363 days a year, and we want our customers to enjoy a seamless experience whenever they choose to visit. We operate a seven day shift pattern, and this role will require you to have the flexibility to work 5 variable days per week. Availability for late night working and emergency call outs will be a requirement. 


What you'll get in return...




  • Up to 25% discount in stores and online
  • Access to external discounts and promotions through Perks@Debenhams
  • Access to the Debenhams Pension Savings Plan
  • A friendly and supportive working environment where colleagues are valued and learning opportunities are available

Our roles can receive high volumes of applications and we may need to occasionally close a vacancy before the published expiry date. We don’t want you to miss out on this fantastic opportunity so we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible.
Everyone is someone at Debenhams, who will you be?
