Poundland To Create 1,000 New Full & Part Time Jobs In The UK

Discount retailer Poundland has announced plans to create 1,000 new full and part time jobs in the UK.

The hiring spree comes on the back of Poundland’s acquisition of Yorkshire frozen food retail chain Fulton Foods.

Poundland has acquired the Fulton Foods brands in order to offer more chilled and frozen food products in its stores over the coming years. The company aims to sell the new product range in 70 stores initially, rising to 110 stores before the end of 2020.

Eventually, Poundland hopes to retail chilled and frozen food in around 500 stores before the end of 2022. The £25 million investment will create hundreds of full and part time jobs as the firm expands the product range throughout its retail empire.

The 800 people already employed by Fulton Foods will all now become employees of Poundland on the same terms and conditions.

The product range expansion will get underway with Poundland starting to convert some existing Fulton Foods’ stores into their own branded format.

Poundland will also use Fulton Foods’ Barnsley base as their own national frozen distribution hub, creating further job opportunities in the South Yorkshire town.

Announcing the recruitment drive, Barry Williams, the managing director of Poundland, said: “We couldn’t have developed our chilled and frozen ranges without Fultons’ expertise and now is the right time to move to the next level and bring the team on board.”

“By combining our experience, we can accelerate our frozen and chilled rollout and bring the amazing value it offers to more of our customers across the UK,” added Mr Williams.
