Maidstone Essential Jobseeker Information

Retail

There are two shopping centres – Fremlin Walk and The Mall. The town is ranked in the top five shopping centres in the south east of England and in the top 50 in the UK - the High Street is also undergoing a £2.2m redevelopment programme that should secure its position as a retail centre. Fremlin Walk is home to large chains such as Apple, Next and Topshop. There can be a range of full-time and part-time jobs found in this sector. Next offer a structured Manager Development Programme in each of their stores throughout the UK.

Office skills

The growth in business is centred around office businesses and support services for those businesses. This means jobseekers should develop a wide range of skills which will be attractive in the office environment. Try to gain experience of a wide range of computer software packages - perhaps through evening classes or tutorials on the internet. Word processing, use of spreadsheets and knowledge of email programs should be at the fore - you need to demonstrate you are skilled enough to offer the business you are joining skills they will find attractive. But also look at basic financial packages such as Sage or design programs such as Photoshop and InDesign. Your future boss will also want to see evidence of team-working so include on your CV any voluntary work or part-time jobs which demonstrate an ability to work with others to produce results.
