Starbucks Creates 400 New Full Or Part Time Jobs Across UK

Coffee chain Starbucks is creating 400 new full or part time jobs across the UK on the back of renewed demand as the pandemic subsides.

With more and more people venturing out, Starbucks is seeing a bounce in demand and expects the trend to increase over the summer months.

Around 200 locations are expected to take on new Starbucks staff and the recruitment push will see the Seattle company increase its UK headcount by more than 10 per cent in the coming weeks.

Some of the towns and cities set to benefit from new Starbucks vacancies in England include Birmingham, Coventry, Derby, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Winchester.

There will also be new Scottish jobs in Aberdeen and Dundee, whilst Wales will see Cardiff gaining new work opportunities from Starbucks.

Although the number of Starbucks open locations is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, the company still has around 1 in 50 outlets yet to reopen.

Speaking ahead of the recruitment drive, Starbucks UK’s Vice President and general manager, Alex Rayner, said: “It has been incredibly difficult to be a high-street retailer in the last year as the Covid-19 pandemic has placed operating restrictions on our business which have impacted our profitability dramatically.”

“But our priority the entire time has been to keep our people employed, avoid making redundancies in our company-operated stores and be prepared to safely re-open as restrictions ease.”

“That’s why I’m really pleased we are now in a position to rebuild our workforce by offering 400 jobs, as we are optimistic about the future of the business,” added Ms Rayner.

If you are starting to feel a bit more optimistic about your own future too, then now could be the perfect time to secure a flexible job before everyone else rushes to fill any new vacancies that become available.
