Act with pace - You understand the need to put customers first, you’re organised and keep any promises you make to customers so that they go away with a positive impression of New Look and want to shop with us again. 

Take responsibility - You’re able to take ownership of every customer that you deal with, ensuring that you treat all customers in a friendly and helpful way. You strive to do your utmost to successfully resolve their queries.
