Retail Assistant x2

University of Oxford

We are looking for two Retail Assistants to join our Retail & Ticketing Team at the Ashmolean Museum in the heart of Oxford.

You will work in the beautiful Museum shops and at the Welcome Desk, working as part of a small friendly team. You’ll be passionate about providing excellent customer service and meeting sales targets. You will have good IT skills, some experience of working with people, and enjoy being in a vibrant, busy environment. An interest in the Cultural Sector is a bonus, but not essential.

This role will involve regular manual handling, and may require you to carry out some lone working from time to time.

This is a permanent, variable hours (paid as claimed) post. This means that you will be happy to work flexibly, including working weekends and occasional evenings.

Our staff and students come from all over the world, and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through diverse groups and champions, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from periods of extended absence, for example shared parental leave.

The Chair of this recruitment panel will be Anna Vrij-Tottey, who can be contacted with enquiries relating to the role (
