Lead Hair Stylist - Oxford Street

Competitive salary + bonus, pension

Oxford Street, London

Description

As our Lead Stylist, you’ll inspire a team of stylists to showcase our game-changing Dyson Supersonic so that it becomes the number one ‘must-have’ beauty product around.

Market Overview

Dyson is rapidly expanding; in its new and core categories, and across all of its global markets. The next four years are going to be Dyson’s biggest and busiest yet. By 2020, we'll be hitting £4 billion in revenue.

Function Overview

Our Retail teams epitomise the entrepreneurial spirit that has defined Dyson since day one: ambitious, commercially savvy, and strategically agile. We drive innovative ways to put our technology into more hands. It requires managing multiple networks of Dyson people and takes ownership and courage.

Accountabilities

First, you’ll look at how we train and develop the stylists that live-demo our products on our customers, so that they feel fantastic throughout their experience and leave knowing it’s not a case of ‘if’ they buy, it’s ‘when’. You’ll feed your exciting ideas for demos and events into the PR Team, so they have plenty of reasons to shout about what you’re doing and where you’re doing it.  And you’ll use your market and beauty knowledge to help the social media team to reach out to our soon-to-be loyal followers. It’s a role that will be driven by your ideas; ideas which will ultimately boost sales and take your career in a whole new direction.


Skills

You’re a stylist with a difference. Yes, you need hands-on experience as a hairdresser, with the NVQs (Level 2) to back up your pedigree. You understand the market. You instinctively get what people want from a styling experience. And you’ve got the passion to be able to come up with new and innovative ways to delight customers, whilst having the commercial-savvy to know a gimmick, from something that’s going to bring about real sales results.  That’s why we’ll need you to have previous skills training experience (you’ll have created training materials too), as well as an understanding of the beauty/electrical retailing market. On top of that, you’ll have the kind of people management and communication skills that will motivate your team to do better. Naturally you’ll need to feel comfortable presenting, often to reasonable-sized crowds.


Benefits Overview

You’ll enjoy a competitive salary, a performance related bonus, generous leave and a pension. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture and the latest devices it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
