Typical Duties in Retail Apprenticeships

On one day you could be dealing with deliveries, the next you could be helping with the store layout. There really are no set duties in Retail Apprenticeships, however, you can expect to be dealing with customers and ensuring the store runs as smoothly as possible as standard.
