Need some extra cash? Queensgate Shopping Centre’s retailers are taking an alternative approach to recruitment this year, with an exciting ‘speed-dating’ event, designed to match retailers with job hunters.
We like the sound of the innovative Speed Recruitment idea (which uses the popular concept of speed-dating) with the event taking place on Thursday October 11 at Costa Coffee in the shopping centre from 6-8pm. The event will involve retailers ranging from Boots, Topshop, Clarks, Monsoon, Next and more, plus between them, they have a minimum of 70 new vacancies available.
Whether you’re a mum or dad looking for a bit of extra income before Christmas, a gap-year student saving for your travels, or you’ve retired and you’re getting bored at home, it’s important to remember that Queensgate and its retailers celebrate and seek diversity. This opportunity is for everyone!
Recruiting retailers will each set up a table with information materials and staff to talk to, and job seekers will be invited approach any retailer who they are interested in working for. The candidates will then be able to find out about the available vacancies and view the job specifications, or ‘swipe left’ if it’s not of interest!
Laura Chandler, Marketing Manager at Queensgate Shopping Centre, said: “We wanted to think outside the box for our retailer recruitment at this time of the year, and we thought this would be a great way to match Queensgate’s retailers with potential candidates.
“It should be a really fun night, and an excellent chance for both job seekers and retailers to ‘test the water’ before any formal interviews take place. So, if you’re looking for a job, not just for Christmas, we look forward to seeing you there!”
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, just pop along on the night and find out whether one of these exciting opportunities has your name on it.
