Jobs

In any business, people make the difference and not least a modern Self-Storage facility. The customers of Storage World Self- Storage & Workspace require great customer service. They need to understand what we can do for them, be matched to our best value offer, be supported through their stay and be pleased enough to recommend friends.

We are looking for people that can enhance our existing team and support our growth aspirations. In 2019, we plan to open at least one new store and add at least 100 customers to each of our existing facilities in Manchester and Middleton.

We are looking for candidates that are great communicators, friendly, organised, problem solvers and enthusiastic. All roles are customer facing and so previous sales and customer services experience would be beneficial. Ongoing support and training is provided through our robust development programme and monthly workshops.

The customer base is varied as Self-Storage can appeal to anyone. They are individuals moving home, requiring space nearby or for their business, sometimes short term and often indefinitely. No two customers are alike, our role is to personalise what we do and ensure they are supported.
