DEBENHAMS start search additional colleagues this Christmas

DEBENHAMS start search additional colleagues this Christmas

Debenhams Ireland stores are on the hunt for over 900 new members of staff this Christmas to help deliver the perfect shopping experience and encourage shoppers to ‘do a bit of Debenhams’.

The colleagues will work on the sales floor during the store’s busiest times including Black Friday, Christmas and the St. Stephens Day sales. Successful applicants will start mid-November and work until the beginning of January.

Debenhams has a strong position in the gifting market with ranges across beauty, accessories, food and fashion. As a result, it is regarded as the go-to destination for shoppers at Christmas.

John Bebbington, regional director of Debenhams Ireland, said: “Christmas is our busiest time of year. We begin planning months before the festivities start to make sure we deliver the high level of service that customers expect from Debenhams.

Our sales colleagues play an important role in not only helping shoppers find the right item but also making sure that they have an enjoyable experience instore – they are a vital part of making sure that everyone has the best Debenhams experience possible.”

The retailer is keen to hear from candidates who want to join a great team, have a strong ‘can-do’ approach and are eager to learn the ropes. Previous retail experience is not essential.

John continues: “Many colleagues who join us over this period stay on as permanent members of the team, so it’s a great opportunity for candidates to apply at this crucial time in the recruitment calendar.”
