Company Details

Currys, the online and high street electrical goods and household appliance retailer, has over 500 stores in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Some branches of Currys are actually co-branded with PC World so that shoppers can visit both stores at the same location.

From cameras to computers and from TVs to tumble dryers, Currys has become a famous name for all things electric in Britain. They are also a big employer in the retail world.

Currys is actually owned by Dixons Retail, which is also responsible for the PC World and Knowhow brand names in the UK and Ireland. If Europe is brought into the equation, then you can also count the Pixmania.com, Elkjop, Gigantti and other brand names as part of the wider Dixons Retail family.

Currys employs around 10,000 people, and, as a whole, parent company Dixons Retail provides full and part time jobs for more than 35,000 staff at over 1,000 stores and offices around the world. So, if you are interested in getting into retail as a career, or you just want a few flexible hours to tide you over while at college or uni, then you should look into all of the opportunities available at Currys.

In store retail positions at Currys will usually be as sales advisors and assistants. If you think you could move into management then there are also positions for assistant managers and store managers at Currys.

Head office roles at Hemel Hempstead include all of the typical support functions like marketing, IT, finance and sales.

There are also opportunities as contact centres, distribution facilities and a variety of other full and part time roles at Currys.

Dixons Retail looks for extra people in the thousands to staff its Currys, PC World and Knowhow locations in the run up to Christmas, but you will need to apply early to stand a good chance of finding a holiday job with them.

If you are interested in longer term work, then you will be pleased to hear that around 1 in 10 staff that Dixons Retail recruits at Currys and other stores for Christmas are taken on as permanent staff after New Year.
