AS Watson Group to create 200,000 jobs for young people across the world by 2030

Health and beauty retailer AS Watson Group has committed to providing 200,000 job openings for young people across the world by 2030.

The owner of Superdrug and Savers in the UK said the move will kickstart young people’s careers in retail with jobs spanning stores, head office and distribution.  There will be a wide range of roles on offer in the fields of customer service, marketing, digital development, ecommerce, analytics, finance and sustainability and more.

Joanne Mackie, group people director (Europe) at AS Watson Group, said: “Young people are an important source of talents and creativity; by developing their skills, we can make our business stronger and fitter for the future. We are not only offering job opportunities, we’re also providing training and coaching to give young people the skills they need to work in the new world of O+O retail.

“We plan to provide 5 million training hours specifically for youth in our global workforce to embrace the future. We look forward to 200,000 talented young people joining us between now and 2030 to help fuel the sustainable growth engine for AS Watson.”

AS Watson has been investing in a range of people development programmes that combine on-the-job learning with further education for young people. In the UK, the Superdrug and Savers Apprenticeship Scheme has been established for more than 10 years to help school leavers who want to gain work experience rather than formal qualifications. This has resulted in more than 4,500 people achieving a Retailer Apprenticeship qualification through the scheme.
