Your Responsibilities:

  • Customer Service – Through your own passion for sport, you’ll share your tips and experiences with users and through our hands-on product training you will be able to give the best technical advice for the sports you are responsible for. Decathlon has shifted over the last year into an omnichannel business so it’s essential that our sales assistants are able to assist customers in all aspects of retail shopping, whether that’s in store or online!
  • Merchandising – Whether full time or part time, every Sales Assistant is encouraged to take responsibility to autonomously manage stock levels and pricing and to provide a high level of merchandising so that each customer can easily find the right product for their sporting practice.
  • Team Player – You will be part of a shop floor team of like-minded Sales Assistants, practising sport and celebrating victories together, so it’s important that you are able to work well within a team environment as well as independently.
