Sales Assistant

This position is part time for one day a week.

Church’s is a luxury shoemaker of rich innovation and traditional excellence, anchored in an exceptional heritage of English craftsmanship. Established in Northampton in 1873, the brand’s expertise quickly earned recognition from its modest beginnings – from a small workshop in Northampton to global expansion. Its patronage was bestowed by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1965. In 1999, the luxury house was acquired by Prada Group, a paradigm of artisanal excellence in its own right and the ideal ally to help the shoemaker take its brand to the next chapter. Reinventing the English roots and championing timeless craftsmanship and traditions: Church’s long-established innovation and authenticity remains paramount with unique designs across shoes and accessories for men and for women.
