The Range To Create 450 Head Office Jobs In Plymouth

British home, garden and leisure retail chain The Range is to open a new base which will create around 450 head office jobs in Plymouth.

The new headquarters of The Range will be adjacent to the retailer’s existing store in the Derriford area of Plymouth and should be ready to start accepting head office staff this summer.

The 450 vacancies will fall across various sections of The Range’s operations with accounting roles, purchasing jobs, marketing positions, IT and ecommerce opportunities all to be filled.

Commenting on the new head office roles at The Range, founder, owner and executive chairman of the retailer, Chris Dawson, said “It was always very important for me to keep our head office operations in our home city of Plymouth and the place that CDS The Range started.”

“I have staff that have worked for the company for over 20 years so having a new office built just down the road from the current office is a big deal to all of us.”

“Having the new superstore next to our head office also means that it can be used as a training academy and centre of excellence so that Range staff from across the UK can come down to Plymouth and be trained to the highest standards,” added Mr Dawson.

The Range has around 160 stores across the United Kingdom at the moment but has ambitions to more than triple its outlets to a possible 600 locations over the coming years.

The Leader of Plymouth City Council, Tudor Evans OBE, welcomed the announcement, saying: “It makes me incredibly proud to be able to see the transformation of this plot of land into a place where hundreds of people work for a hugely successful and home-grown company.”

“It means steady work for hundreds of people as well as opportunities and that’s great for families here in Plymouth. We are talking over 500 people now enjoying employment. That’s just fantastic,” added Mr Evans.
