Music team member (Romford)


We have a quirky music section that caters to classical connoisseurs, lounge lizards, rockers, and easy listeners - with all genres in-between and beyond!  We need someone with a passion for and knowledge of one or more music genres to help consolidate and expand our music section. This will help us to grow our sales. You'll be working alongside great people in our fantastic, newly refurbished shop.

Skills and competencies:

  • An idea of what titles/genres/artists are on trend would be beneficial.
  • An idea of collectable items - i.e. particular vinyl recordings.

  • Ability to work well - both alone and as part of a team.
  • Attention to detail.
