Matalan To Create 400 New Retail Jobs With Head Office Move

Matalan, the discount retailer, is to up sticks from its Skelmersdale head office in a move which could create up to 400 full or part time jobs in Merseyside.

The company has plans to relocate its North West head offices to the town of Kirkby in Knowsley, less than 10 miles away from its current head offices, and will increase its headcount from approximately 1,200 to somewhere in the region of 1,600 members of staff.

Speaking to local newspaper the Liverpool ECHO, the company said: “Matalan is currently undergoing formal procedures regarding the move of its head office to Knowsley Industrial Park. Matalan sees the proposed move as an important development to ensure the future growth of the business into a leading multi-channel retailer, as well as a positive investment into the local community.”

The 1000-acre Knowsley Industrial Park is home to hundreds of other companies but the new Matalan head office and warehouse facility will be one of the biggest employers at the site when it completes the move by the end of 2014.

Outside of head office, Matalan has over 200 stores spread across a total trading space of over 5 million square feet, providing retail jobs for thousands of people in the UK.
