SA retail industry sectors by gender
Retail has great diversity with many different areas ranging from fast food and take-away to jewelers and newsagents. Supermarkets, wholesale and logistics employ large numbers while others such as floristry are much smaller.
Some areas have an even split of male and female employees (such as fruit and vegetable retailing), while others have more male employees (hardware trade and gardening) or alternatively more females (department stores and pharmacies). If you have a particular preference for the mix of your workplace, then retail offers all options!
