Developing Our Teams
At Jigsaw we pride ourselves on our professional development in all areas of the business. Providing a high standard of training and commitment to supporting our people and teams are one of the keys to our success.
If you are based in a store most of your training will be conducted ‘on the job’, working directly with the customers and our products as we believe this is the best way for you to learn about retail and our high standards. Each of our stores is provided with detailed information about our collections, styling, key pieces and seasonal looks giving our staff the necessary information to provide the highest levels of customer service. Our store teams are led by strong retail managers who work daily to develop their teams, while simultaneously creating a unique and welcoming store environment.
Jigsaw is committed to supporting the career development of our staff. We have a strong track record of dedicated store staff and this is testimony to the exciting and rewarding environment we provide to our teams. The majority of our store management teams are made up of people who started as a member of the sales team and who have developed their skills to become a manager. We also believe in providing a career path for those individuals who want to develop their career in others areas of retail. In the past year we have successfully promoted members of our store teams to positions in merchandising, e-commerce, finance and office administration functions in our Head Office at Kew.
At Head Office we strive to provide our teams with the same level of support and development as our stores. We provide structured training in several areas of professional qualifications. We also have a training application process for individuals who would like to develop their current skills or competency within their area of expertise.
At Jigsaw we believe in conducting business in a way that supports our employees, suppliers and customers. Each one of our stores are uniquely designed according to location, putting them at the heart of their local community. We actively encourage our staff to get involved in a range of activities and charity events for both personal development and to make a positive impact on the local community and wider society.
Each year a selection of our staff take part in the annual Slaughterford Valley run. This event enables our employees to join the wider public in a run through green fields, muddy tracks and stony lanes. Our owner and founder John Robinson has been running in this race for many years and encourages all staff to join in.
In the past year our people have taken part in various charity events ranging from marathons and growing moustaches to raise money. Senior members of our retail team take part in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in October each year, running for the charity Help a Capital Child.
Jigsaw also supports the Knit a Square campaign where we encourage all our customers and employees to take up knitting to support AIDS orphans in Africa. KasCare founded Knit a Square in 2008 to ask the knitters and crocheters of the world to make 8”/20cm squares to be used to make up blankets for the children to warm and comfort them in the bitterly cold winters.
