Every Debenhams store in the UK shut for good earlier this year after a drastic decline in profits. The company was bought by the Boohoo group which moved all sales online, now, Debenhams is set to make its high street return

A job vacancy has opened for a Debenhams Beauty Assistant located in Manchester.

The advert says: “As a Beauty Assistant, you are an essential part of a team that delivers the extraordinary service our customers expect from Debenhams Beauty.

“Maintaining the highest of retail standards, keeping up to date on product knowledge and replenishing stock, customer service is at the heart of what you do.

“An expert for all things Debenhams Beauty and the go-to person to help our customers, you are fully knowledgeable of everything about the store including the latest trends and services we offer.”

The salary for the role is not disclosed in the advert, nor is the exact store location.

However, rumours suggest it could be based within the Arndale Shopping Centre in Manchester and could be the only one of its kind.

Motivations for reopening a store come after it was reported in June that some beauty brands had refused to supply products to Debenhams unless it had a physical store presence.

To combat the problem, Boohoo Group chief executive John Lyttle told the Times the firm would open one small Debenhams outside London, insisting it would be “one store and one store only”.

Boohoo bought the 243-year-old department store for £55m in January this year after sales collapsed.

The decline was in part due to the growth of online shopping and accelerated by the Covid pandemic, with Debenhams entering administration three times last year due to lockdowns.
