If you’re thinking about working in a shop in the UK, it’s helpful to know where the best paid jobs are.

Retail work isn’t always easy, so it’s important to find a job that pays well for all the work you put in. Knowing that you have choices, particularly around pay, is a good starting point when looking for a retail job that’s right for you.

Why are good paying retail jobs important?

At Breakroom, we believe that all jobs can be good jobs. However, not all jobs are paid fairly.

Retail work is physically demanding, requires patience, and involves working under pressure and problem solving. These skills should be reflected in the pay retail workers receive.
