We are Kids.
If this sounds like you, please read on…
Cotton On Kids is the number one destination for great value, fashion driven kids wear. From newborns up we have the everyday essentials and fashion to keep our kids looking great. We cater to mini fashionistas and the mini leaders of the pack, as little boys and girls leave our stores with the style and street cred to own the playground.
Live and Love Kids wear, join us.
You must lead your team by making the customer and sales your focus. This requires that you train, motivate and coach your team and co-workers to get them to think commercially at all times while ensuring that fashion remains at the centre of everything we do. Product presentation, store windows, campaign implementation, trends and advertising must have a clear impact on sales figures and turnover of the store.
Therefore, you not only have to have a great feel for the fashion we are displaying and selling, you also have to have an ironclad grip on sales figures, costs and objectives in order to plan your daily work.
