The retail industry is one of the UK’s largest private sector employers. Within the retail industry many of the roles will be customer facing, but you could also work in areas such as buying, online retail, merchandising, IT support, marketing, distribution, or logistics. Almost 1 in 10 working people work in the retail industry and 60,000 Retail Managers may be needed in the UK by 2022. The growing number of self-service tills in shops such as supermarkets means fewer Check Out Assistants, but Store and Deputy Store Managers will be in demand.
