After the announcement that a fifth of UK retailers plans to axe jobs in the last quarter of 2018, AJG Direct is promoting how the direct sales industry could give talented retail professionals a second chance.

Retail is the biggest UK employment sector; it is alarming that the industry has seen a drop-in employment level by 3% over the last few months as brands look to restructure their business models. AJG Direct blame the rising costs of retailing services including rent and insurances for the reduced profit margins. The dominance of online retailers such as Amazon means the convenience of online shopping is reducing the foot flow into actual stores. Despite this, AJG Direct are certain brands who overlook the human element of their sales will struggle to establish their brand in the future. The skills needed to become successful in retail are transferable to business. Utilising the systems of a traditional store; but reducing the overheads, the successful marketing agency can invigorate customer experience and offer brands a retail style platform to engage with customers within budget constraints.

AJG Direct is offering opportunities to those who can demonstrate their natural sales ability, often associated with retail workers. The ‘best place to work’ finalist will be encouraging those who are becoming disheartened by the poor performing retail sector, trying their hand at event marketing, the interactive nature of the business model is a great transitional opportunity for those looking to remain within the retail environment but fancy a change with progression opportunities.
