300 New Retail Jobs & Apprenticeships In Newcastle

A £30 million expansion of the Silverlink shopping centre is to create around 300 full or part time retail jobs in Newcastle.

Next will have the biggest store at the expanded Silverlink Point retail centre, with dozens of jobs up for grabs from other new tenants like Hobbycraft, Sofology and Wren Kitchens.

Property firm The Crown Estate is heading the expansion which will see the number of retailers at the Newcastle shopping centre increase from 27 to 31. Other existing retailers at Silverlink include Argos, Boots, H&M, JD Sports, M&S, New Look, Outfit and River Island.

As well as the 300 retail jobs which will be created once the new stores open in November, the Silverlink expansion has also created more than 150 temporary construction jobs. The Crown Estate have also created a number of retail apprenticeships and construction apprenticeships for under 24s at Silverlink Point too.

Commenting on the expansion, The Crown Estate’s asset manager, Mike Bell, said: “Silverlink is a great shopping park in a strong location. Our £30m investment in the Silverlink Point extension will allow us to bring new retailers and further enhance the shopping experience for all.”

“At the same time, we will be creating a number of jobs locally as well as improving highways infrastructure,” added Mr Bell.
