AO Creates Over 200 New Full Or Part Time Jobs In Crewe

AO, an online retailer which specialises in electrical products, has created over 200 new full or part time vacancies in Crewe.

The jobs are within the company’s AO Logistics’ operations and roles on offer include warehouse positions, fork lift truck drivers and regular drivers.

The recruitment drive at AO has been driven by a surge in demand for their online products during the Coronavirus pandemic.

AO already employs around 800 members of staff at their Crewe facility but the new recruits will increase the company’s headcount in the Cheshire town by over 25 per cent.

Announcing the new vacancies in Crewe, AO Logistics’s managing director, David Ashwell, said: “We've been quick to adapt to meet increased customer demand and we're investing in the future, adding more space and hundreds of new, quality jobs for people in Cheshire. We're proud to be a growing local employer with a history of creating careers in phenomenal business where the sky is the limit.”

“We've proudly provided a lifeline to customers during Covid and a safe working environment for our people. Now, we're doubling down on our expertise and infrastructure to make sure that we're in a great position to cement the changes and keep serving customers brilliantly moving out of lockdown.”

“Every one of the new recruits will also be part of AO's recently announced incentive scheme, the Value Creation Plan. The revolutionary new scheme is the first of its kind in the UK and will give every AO-er the opportunity to earn around one times’ salary linked to the business’ success over the next five years,” added Mr Ashwell.

As an indication of the opportunities to advance within the ranks at the company, Ben Tesla joined the firm’s ranks seven years ago as a warehouse operative and is now the operations manager at AO Logistics, looking after a team of more than 400 staff on the Crewe night shift.

“When I joined AO, I never expected to build a career here but the opportunities I've been given have enabled me to learn and grow on the job. I couldn't recommend AO enough as a place to work,” said Mr Tesla.
