Sofa Specialist ScS To Create 150 More Full or Part Time Jobs

Sofa specialist ScS has announced plans to create a further 150 new full or part time jobs nationwide.

On the back of Coronavirus demand, the retailer took on 150 new staff in August and is now looking to fill a further 150 vacancies in a variety of roles across the UK.

During the pandemic, ScS has seen an uptick in demand for its sofas, carpets, flooring and other home furnishing products. The company saw orders increase by more than 90 per cent in the quarter to the end of July and continue to grow by over 50 per cent in the last six weeks.

The hiring spree will see the number of employees at ScS grow further past the 2,000 mark as it looks to recruit 150 new ‘meeters and greeters’, delivery drivers, contact centre staff and sales personnel.

The 150 new vacancies will be a mix of permanent positions and temporary vacancies at its 100+ stores, contact centre and nine distribution hubs around the country.

Launching the latest recruitment drive at his company, David Knight, the chief executive officer at ScS, said: “Due to a sharp rise in orders, we are in the fortunate position of being able to add to our existing workforce. In the six weeks leading up to September, our like-for-like order intake grew by 51 per cent, equivalent to £19 million of additional revenue.”

“We’re delighted to be able to invest some of this into new staff members, as we continue to navigate our way through these unprecedented times,” added Mr Knight.

Offering some incentives to sign up with ScS, the company says:

“Hard-work, dedication and passion is always rewarded here at ScS. We offer all our people highly competitive salaries, generous benefits, discounts, plus the kind of support and training that allows you to get on and up in your career. Whether your role is in sales or distribution, head office or support services, we have the opportunity, package and prospects that’s right for you.”
