How to get a job at Westfield London shopping centre?

1) Do your research & apply directly
The best way to get a job at Westfield London shopping centre is to do your research. You need to know who you want to work for, and why. First you have to decide whether you want to work for Westfield London shopping centre, or for the shops inside the centre.

If you want to work for the retailers, see our list of Westfield London shops and then visit the retailers’ websites to see if there are vacancies, and what qualifications are required. The shops tend to put jobs they’re advertising on their websites, first. Their websites usually tell you how to apply, too. It’s often via a web form, or they ask you to visit the manager in-store.

Please note: Westfield London is home to many luxury brands, and they often have exacting requirements when they are recruiting. For example, when Louis Vuitton advertised for a London ready-to-wear sales associate, they expected: “a huge knowledge of fashion, styling and who’s who in fashion”, at least four years of experience, preferably a second language (Mandarin, Russian or Arabic) and a “strong client book”.

If you do your research, before applying, you’ll improve your chances of getting the job.

You can also work for Westfield directly. Westfield shopping centres employ many people to keep their malls running; in centre management, security, construction, design, leasing, finance, legal, marketing and human resources. Westfield list their jobs at a central website.

2) Get active – visit Work Zone
One of the best kept Westfield London “mall secrets” is that Hammersmith & Fulham Council have created a Work Zone in partnership with Westfield London. Work Zone lists jobs at Westfield London. See the website. You can visit Work Zone in person at Shepherd’s Bush Library, Westfield London.

3) Get the right training
If you don’t have the right qualifications, it can be difficult to get a job. You could ask for advice at the Work Zone, Shepherd’s Bush Library. But there’s also many resources available online. See learndirect.co.uk. They also offer advice about creating your CV.

4) Use the web, and be persistent
Directgov lists jobs at Westfield London. Other sites that list jobs at Westfield London include: Retail Choice and Jobsite.

And finally, persistence is really important when looking for a job. You’ve got to be “in it to win it”.

Good luck with your job hunt!

    Hiyaaa (:
    I have retail experience in the mens store Blue Inc. I was working there for approximately 3-4 months but had to quit due to college. I later found out that I have a few flexible days whilst I am at college so I thought I should get another part-time job.
    I was just wondering which places in Westfield are actually recruiting? I’m coming there tomorrow to hand out some CV’s. The only trouble is that I am desperate for a job right now & applying online isn’t reliable.
    Any suggestions? It would be much appreciated.

      Hi Mia, the Work Zone (details above) is a good website to visit, it’s a partnership between Westfield and the local council – so it is pretty reliable for listed jobs.
