Robert DyasRobert Dyas
We are modern retailers who are curious and interested in the new. We scour the world for the latest products and nifty solutions that make homemaking easier, we are not interested in the flimsy or throwaway. For us, new products must be enduring as well as innovative. Modern homes can be pretty demanding. There are always a million and one things that need adding, doing or fixing. We run our business as shopkeepers, not just shops, offering the new, the rare and the necessary with the helpful advice and guidance our customers need. Robert Dyas was bought in July 2012 by Theo Paphitis, one of the former investors on TV's Dragons' Den. Since then, the company has shown improved year-on-year results and driven a programme of investments.
Training & Profiles
You don't need to have a particular degree, or experience in retail, but a head for numbers, an eye for detail, and strong analytical skills are crucial. What we're looking for is the ability to think creatively and strategically. You'll thrive in a constantly changing working environment where decisions happen quickly and everyone works together to make the incredible possible.
The training we will offer you is on the job training with our professional buyers, exposing you to meetings with suppliers, trade fairs and the impact the buyers decisions make on the business - the potential is endless.
This will be backed up by specifically targeted and bespoke training from our Learning and Development team.
