Screwfix To Create 500 New Full & Part Time Retail Jobs In The UK

DIY specialist Screwfix has announced plans to create 500 new full or part time retail jobs in the UK.

The company is set to open 40 new stores in the UK, creating an average of more than a dozen vacancies at each new outlet.

Screwfix is also almost doubling its presence in the Republic of Ireland by opening a further 10 stores, a move which will create a further 100 jobs.

All of the vacancies are to be filled before the end of January next year and positions on offer will include service assistants, supervisors and retail managers.

Screwfix, owned by Kingfisher, already has over 700 stores across the UK and the Republic of Ireland and employs over 11,000 members of staff in full and part time retail jobs.

Announcing the recruitment spree and expansion plans, the Chief Executive Officer for Screwfix, John Mewett, said: “I am incredibly proud of all Screwfix colleagues for their support in continuing to keep our customers supplied safely. We’re delighted to be opening 50 new stores this year, creating 600 jobs.”

“The growing demand for convenience means we now see scope for over 900 stores in the UK & Ireland, which will help our busy customers get their jobs done.”

“We know that time is money for our customers and these new stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland enable us to provide our customers with added convenience and certainty, and provide even more job opportunities for local communities when they need it most,” added Mr Mewett.
