Seasonal Temporary Booksellers


We are currently looking for enthusiastic and dedicated full and part-time temporary booksellers to join us for our busy Christmas period at our four stores in London: our flagship branch on Charing Cross Road, and our smaller but no less wonderful shops in the Royal Festival Hall, Waterloo Station and Westfield Stratford.
 

The successful candidates will be involved in the day to day running of the store and will therefore take on a wide range of responsibilities.  These will include:  

  • Excellent customer service
  • Basic day to day bookselling duties
  • Merchandising
  • Cash handling duties  
     

As an ideal candidate you will have previous bookselling or similar retail experience. Above all you must be highly motivated, energetic and able to communicate your passion for books to our hugely diverse range of customers. You will also be a team player who is reliable and punctual.
 

You must be available to work evenings, weekends and throughout the Christmas period (excluding Christmas Day itself). The hourly rate for this role is £9.53.
 

If you are interested in one of these positions, or have any questions about them, please send an up-to-date CV to [email protected], together with a covering letter telling us what makes you the ideal Foyles bookseller, and whether it's a full-time or part-time position you are interested in, and in which store.
 

We are interviewing now and will be accepting applications until 5pm on Sunday 3rd October, so please do get in touch as soon as possible if you believe one of these roles should be yours. Please note that due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are only able to contact those candidates invited to interview.
