Retail Matters Week is a campaign to celebrate and showcase the great talents of those who work in retail and the careers and initiatives implemented by the retail property sector.
Retail employs some 3 million people, creates a positive impact by being the main employer in towns and cities and helps maintain communities – employing the disadvantaged and marginalised and those with physical or mental difficulties.
However, the negative perception of working in retail is that it is a job that starts and ends on the shop floor. We know this isn’t true and working in retail provides a rich and rewarding career path.
We want to show why retail is a great career choice.
Retail Matters Week provides a spotlight for an industry that almost everyone interacts with on a daily basis but where members of the public rarely see beyond their transactions.
