Debenhams Announces 9000 Festive Jobs Up For Grabs

Debenhams announced that it is on the lookout for 9,000 seasonal temps to cope with its busiest time of year; Christmas.

Although the number of positions has increased, the number of hours remains the same. The retailer has altered its recruitment strategy by searching for more part-time roles. This emphasis on flexible shift patterns will ensure additional staff are in store whenever customers need them.

The jobs will be split across Debenhams’ 160 outlets and average out at 56 per store. The jobs are based in menswear, womenswear, accessories, childrenswear, home, gift or cosmetics departments.

Roles available are varied and include everything from stock handling and general sales advisor jobs to gift advisor roles which require special training.

While previous retail experience isn’t essential, excellent customer service and team working skills are.

Michael Sharp, Deputy Chief Executive at Debenhams said: “These jobs are sure to be welcomed by local economies during the most financially challenging part of the year.

“Our recruitment drive is so huge that for the first time we have trained a manager in all 160 stores to oversee staffing for Christmas.

“We are recruiting directly through our website and looking for energetic people with a talent for customer service.”

Minister for Employment, Chris Grayling said: “These new vacancies are a great boost for jobseekers, and flexible working patterns mean they can be family friendly too.

“We are committed to injecting new life into the private sector and this is another example of how employment in this sector is growing.”

Contracts will be for flexible working hours with the majority of positions running from November through to January, when the majority of customers will be carrying out their Christmas shop or indulging in the January sales.

Cash Strapped Britons Take On Part Time Work With Kleeneze

With recent news reports that one in ten Britons fear they will have to work until they die to combat their lack of savings and pension, catalogue company Kleeneze is reporting a rise in applications from those in full time employment looking to earn extra income.

A recent report by insurance firm Aviva claims that millions have no savings and face large mortgages and ballooning debts. The Department for Work and Pensions also recently revealed that 60 per cent of the working age population don’t have a pension, meaning an increasing number of people are facing a financial struggle in later life.

Jamie Stewart, managing director of Kleeneze, says: “Many people are realising that they need to take action now in order to ensure they can retire and be comfortable in their old age.

“We’ve seen an upturn in applications from those looking to work with us part time in order to supplement the income from their full time job. Working with Kleeneze allows distributors to build their own hours, working as little or as much as they like to generate some vital extra income.

“Anyone who would like to find out more should get in touch to discover how the Kleeneze solution could work for them.”
