Retail and Bar Assistant - JCA

"It is a positive and uplifting place to work"
About Me

I have worked as a Retail Assistant in the Gift shop for a month now.  The role also involves working in the convenienc store where children can buy snacks and drinks as opposed to the gift shop which also sells Condover and JCA memorabilia. There is also the opportunity to work in the Orangery Bar.

Favourite part of the job

My Favourite part of the job is interacting with the children who visit Condover hall.  I also like restocking the gift shop and convenience store because it is based in the beautiful Condover mansion.

Why should you join JCA?

It is a positive and uplifting place to work because all the children are so happy to be here.  It is great to see their faces when they find the perfect gift to take home at the end of their stay with us.

What qualities do you need to work a season?

To work as a retail assistant for a season you need to be positive and willing to help.  You will need to be able to interact with the children and teachers when they come to the gift shop, convenience shop and the bar as this will all contribute to the impression that they have of the experience at Condover Hall.  You have to be organised and have good time management.  Also, it helps if you can match the enthusiasm of the children!
