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...




Playing a vital role in supporting the store to achieve business results, our business support assistants work within our back offices ensuring that all company procedures and processes with regard to cash management, administration and stock management are followed.




This is a broad and fast paced role and will involve counting and reconciling cash, coordinating recruitment and training activities, maintaining filing systems, processing stock documentation and taking action to avoid unnecessary waste and cost to the business and environment.




What you will bring...




You will have an organised approach and will be numerate and PC literate to a basic level in Microsoft Excel and Word. You will have the ability to work calmly under pressure and be able to deliver exceptional customer service both face to face and over the telephone. A flexible approach, willingness to learn and ability to follow procedures are essential.




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.


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 so recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible.


Everyone is someone at Debenhams, who will you be?
