From Retail to Salesforce – Transfer your skills

The Retail industry, particularly high street shopping has unfortunately been hit by Covid -19 at a significant level, so we are seeing redundancies of more traditional roles and a shift towards retail technology as online shopping becomes the new norm.

This week explores how people have shifted their career from traditional retail roles into the Salesforce and technology space.
