The Hut Group To Create 1,000 Tech Jobs In The North

British e-commerce firm The Hut Group, a health, beauty, fitness and lifestyle specialist, has announced that it will create 1,000 tech jobs in the north of England.

The hundreds of vacancies at the company - which is headquartered in Northwich, Cheshire and is already the town’s biggest employer - will be added over the course of the next three years.

The Hut Group already boasts over 1,200 staff but the new recruitment drive for tech specialists, including graduates, represents a major expansion of their workforce.

CEO and founder of The Hut Group, Matthew Moulding, said: “This is a significant technology investment to support our growth plans and provide a world class proprietary ecommerce platform and infrastructure to increase capacity, speed and resilience for our global customer base.”

“We expect this to be the start of further significant investment in UK technology with a further 1,000 new technology jobs planned over the next three years,” added Mr Moulding.

Mr Moulding launched The Hut Group with £500,000 in 2004 after noticing a major discrepancy in the price of an online CD as opposed to buying one on the high street. The company has offered online retail tech solutions to clients including Argos Entertainment, ASDA, Elizabeth Arden, Honda, Nectar, Nintendo, Tesco, Unilever and WHSmith.

Explaining why graduates might want to work for The Hut Group, the company’s careers site says:

“The Hut Group is on a special path as an industry-leading British company going global. In the process, we are building high profit global brands across the health, beauty and lifestyle sectors. We plan on doing this with ambitious and highly intelligent individuals who want to disrupt the status quo.”

“We believe in hiring talented people and providing them with the freedom, autonomy and responsibility they need to achieve their full potential. Deliver results for us and we will reward you – career progression here is a pace faster than that available in traditional industries like banking or consultancy.”
