  • I am a recruitment agent. Can I submit CVs of candidates speculatively?

    We do not accept unsolicited applications from recruitment agencies. Any CVs submitted will be deleted and we will not accept any liability for fees. As a business we have a preferred list of recruitment partners who may be instructed to support with specific vacancies, in line with the signed terms agreed with them.

  • Do you have sales targets when working retail?

    Yes we do. As any commercial business, sales are part of the role. This means that our teams on counter will have targets for sales and various role-specific KPIs that are tried and tested and achievable via the delivery of our Service Model. As a brand we have a fantastic support network of trainers that will equip you with the right tools for the job, and train you to engage your customer the Liz Earle way. You will find, by doing your role the way we train you to, combined with your personal passion for people and beauty retail, that sales will follow. 

  • I am a recruitment agent. Can I submit CVs of candidates speculatively?

    As you know, retail is no 9-to-5, hence we predominantly look for full flexibility across Monday – Sunday. This allows our Retail Managers to create rotas that cater for the needs of the business whilst also being fair and consistent across team members.
    We have stores on the high street, in shopping centres, train stations and airports to name a few. This means hours vary greatly depending on the location, and extended opening hours (sometimes even as late as 10pm) can be expected, particularly during busy periods like Christmas time. A full shift is 7.5 hours and we aim to do rotas 4 weeks ahead to ensure you can plan your life around work. When applying we ask you to be clear on the hours you are available

  • I can't find a role on your website that I saw advertised elsewhere.

    If you can’t find the role on our website it means we have closed the advert due to the volume of applications or because it’s been filled. This is why we don’t state closing dates on our job adverts.

  • I handed my CV into a Liz Earle Beauty counter directly - when will someone contact me?

    Whilst we do take CV’s handed into our Counters, it’s always best to follow up by applying through the formal channels, on our website. Please note that due to the high volume of applications, we are unfortunately unable to contact unsuccessful applicants.

  • How long can I expect to wait for a response following my interview?

    We try to contact all candidates who have attended an interview within five working days. If you have had a phone screen, we will only be in contact if you have been successful and are being invited to interview.

  • Can Liz Earle Beauty team members move between stores?

    Yes – for employees that wish to re-locate we will always try to accommodate these requests. It may not always be possible to move stores due to the business requirements and staffing in place at the desired store.

  • Does Liz Earle Beauty offer employee discounts?

    Yes - 75% off for retail staff and 50% for office and warehouse staff. We also get amazing goodie bags each month filled with lots of lovely Liz Earle Beauty products!

  • Why do I need to provide Right to Work information?

    The UK Government states that we must check a job applicant has the right to work in the UK before we employ them. More information can be found here

  • I live on the Mainland and would like to work at the Liz Earle Beauty head offices on the Isle of Wight – do you offer support with travel?

    Yes! For those travelling from the mainland, travel on the Hover is paid for as a benefit in kind. There is also a company bus that runs between the harbour in Ryde and our office.  

  • I am interested in a Part Time role, will there be set shifts?

    We ask for full flexibility from our part time staff, but appreciate that you have other commitments so we do always try to plan the rota four weeks in advance. But we ask that your role at Liz Earle Beauty is the priority.

    Please send this through to our Payroll team:

  • How will I know what to do once I have joined the team?

    All new employees have a 3 month probation period which involves three meetings with your Line Manager. The first one should be held within two weeks to set your objectives for these 3 months and issue you with your job description. You will then have two others to make sure you are on the right track and allow you to feedback how you are finding your new role. This first 3 months is a great opportunity to find your feet and get to know your new role and team.

  • Do you pay commission for your retail teams?

    We’ve always preferred to compensate our teams fairly through hourly rates/salary and as such do not offer commission based on sales. Why? Our service model is based on unrivalled customer experience offered by welcoming and passionate advisors, with customer service at the heart. 

  • I am a recruitment agent. Can I submit CVs of candidates speculatively?

    We look at development on an individual basis, so no one size fits all. In addition to your regular conversations and one-to-ones with your manager, we also have a Personal Development Plan for each team member annually. This means you will have formal conversations twice a year with your line manager, to discus your strengths and development opportunities together. You’ll work together to create an action plan, which could involve more on-the-job training, formal training or qualifications, or simply adding breadth to your job and building on soft skills.
    We are pleased that a high volume of our roles are filled internally, reflective of our dedication to the professional development of our teams. We also work very closely with our colleagues in WBA Global Brands to seek out shining talent across the company. Additionally, we have access to online portals to allow individuals to take charge of their own personal development, as well as having an in-house Learning and
