John Lewis has kicked off one of the biggest retail recruitment campaigns in Poole this year as it looks for staff for its first new homewares store.
The retailer is searching for over 100 full-time and part-time sales assistants, caterers and specialist advisers for John Lewis at Home, which is due to open this autumn.
John Lewis at Home is a new format for the retailer, and will be a third of the size of a typical John Lewis department store. The Poole shop will focus exclusively on home, electrical and home technology, and will also have a café.
John Lewis personnel manager Barbara Jacobs, who is coordinating the recruitment and training process, said the retailer was “looking for people with a wide variety of skills and a can-do attitude. We need people who are enthusiastic team players and can demonstrate a passion for retail.”
