Excellent service and prompt delivery on our G Plan Malvern suite. I saved 350 compared to the prices given by shops in Devon which is better off in my pocket than theirs. I am very satisfied, the suite was brilliantly packaged and we are very pleased with it, thank you

About Claytons

Claytons Carpets Ltd is Lincoln’s largest family owned Carpet & Furniture Superstore. Established in Lincoln in 1963, we have grown with the aim of offering excellent service and great value to our customers. The Carpet & Flooring Sales position will be based at our superstore just off Tritton Road in Lincoln. It is rare that job openings come up within our company, as usually our staff stay with us for the long term. The advertised role is for a position within our Carpet Department.


The Ideal Applicant...

Carpet Sales experience is advantageous but not always necessary for the right person with the potential to succeed as we will train on the job. Our carpet salespeople are knowledgeable, trusted specialists, offering expert guidance and support to our customers, helping to turn their houses into homes.

You should be able to:

• Provide an excellent customer experience, helping customers to choose the perfect flooring for their homes

• Achieve personal and team sales targets

• Easily build rapport and confidently seek to understand each customer’s needs

The person that we are looking for to join our team should be efficient, have a naturally friendly demenour and have a friendly, can do, helpful attitude and outlook. You should have a natural attention to detail, be numerate, logical and be able to develop rapport with our customers & consistently convert sales in a this very busy department.

Being a local family company the role and tasks can be varied and so we require a flexible, willing and motivated individual to fit well within our small friendly team. In return you will be working in a really nice friendly environment, a place where you can really feel that you belong when you come to work and not just a number answerable to a remote head office. We are a financially secure, locally owned company who reinvest back into our business and so can also offer the right applicant job security and the chance to earn extra based upon the products you sell.

The ideal applicant would have experience in a similar sales role in a retail sales environment  and whilst a background in selling Carpets is an advantage, this is not an essential requirement for the right person with a great personality and the desire and potential to succeed, as on the job training would be given as well as training on our in house retail software. I.T. proficiency is important and a willingness to learn and adapt and an eye for detail, efficiency and good administration and organisational skills.

You should have confidence in dealing with a variety of people and you should be commercially minded, energetic, with a hands on approach the efficient running of our carpet sales function, from actually gaining the sale, right through to completion and beyond such as aftersales customer service, it is a varied role.

Applicants are required to have the ability to work both on their own initiative, but also as part of the team, excellent organisational, personal and communication skills are essential.

We ask for flexible willing staff, people with positive, ‘can do’ attitudes, who want to give our customers fantastic service and go the extra mile, but in return, we are not a high pressure regime like the group stores which makes it a nicer place to work and that is why on the whole, our staff stay for the long term.

So if you have the enthusiasm, friendly personality and passion for selling carpets & flooring, and if you are hardworking, target driven and are focussed on getting things right first time with an attention to detail and a knack for problem solving and a naturally good administrator, then we’d love to hear from you. If on the other hand, you are the kind of person to say ‘ it’s not my job’, or you don’t want to work weekends, then you wouldn’t be the right fit for us at Clayton’s, we’re a different kind of company, we want to get the job done without barriers regardless of the task at hand, that’s how we continue to thrive.
