Majestic launches biggest-ever festive recruitment drive

Majestic has embarked on its biggest festive recruitment drive to date as it looks to hire 200 team members to work in its UK stores.

The wine retailer is expanding its workforce with a combination of permanent positions and temporary festive roles as it gears up for the golden quarter and prepares for future bricks-and-mortar growth.

The move follows Majestic’s second-biggest Christmas in its 43-year history in 2022.

Roles available will include those for delivery drivers, sales assistants, assistant managers and trainee managers. Permanent positions will include roles at new Majestic stores in Crouch End, Chippenham, Monmouth and Christchurch, all of which are due to open ahead of Christmas.

Majestic currently employs more than 1,400 staff members across its 204 UK stores, Hemel Hempstead distribution centre and its support centre in Watford. In April, the retailer made its biggest-ever investment in staff pay when all store colleagues were awarded a basic pay increase that took their hourly rate to at least £10.60, ahead of the National Minimum Wage.

Majestic chief executive John Colley said: “Christmas is always an exciting and busy time for Majestic, and this year we are looking for more new colleagues than ever to come and join us. Our new team members will not only help us to deliver our biggest Christmas ever, but will play a key part in our ambitious growth plans for next year and beyond.

“During what are challenging economic times, we are proud to be investing in our stores, creating jobs and recruiting skilled, passionate colleagues – including those whose careers in retail may have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, cost-of-living crisis or redundancies.”
