1,200 New UK Jobs Coming At Perfume Shop, Savers & Superdrug

There will be almost 1,200 high street retail jobs up for grabs at The Perfume Shop, Savers & Superdrug after owner AS Watson has announced a massive recruitment drive for the three chains.

The majority of the full or part time vacancies will come at Superdrug which will open 30 new branches with an average of just over 20 jobs at each store, leading to a total of 650 vacancies to be advertised at the health and beauty retailer.

Sister health, home and beauty retailer Savers, will create 450 jobs with an average of 10 at each of 45 new planned outlets.

The remaining 78 retail vacancies will be created at fragrance specialist The Perfume Shop which open 13 new stores in the coming months.

In total, the expansion will see AS Watson open 88 new branches across the three brands during a time when some other retailers are scaling back plans due to Brexit uncertainty.

Highlighting the tough nature of the current retail environment in the UK following the EU membership referendum last June, Managing Director of AS Watson, Dominic Lai, said: “We are under a lot of pressure, with Brexit uncertainty and sterling going down, but we will continue to invest in the UK.”

However, the retailers in AS Watson’s stable seem to be bucking the trend, with Superdrug reporting a 41 per cent rise in profits on a turnover increase of just over 10 per cent.

We try to fill full and part time retail vacancies with students all over the UK. If you fancy working in a store - whether that’s just at the weekends, during late night shopping evenings or full time during the term holidays - we can help you find a vacancy in your area today.
