PEP&CO brings forward Christmas temp job plans

High street fashion retailer PEP&CO has brought forward its Christmas plans to create over 100 temporary jobs in its stores following consistent 2016 sales growth and a positive customer reaction to its inclusion in ITV’s new docusoap Bargain Shop Wars.

PEP&CO brings forward Christmas temp job plans

From this week, each of PEP&CO’s 50 locations across the UK is recruiting temporary summer staff to help serve customers.

The retailer's logistics partner Clipper also plans to recruit an additional 30 eight week roles for its Swadlincote distribution centre in South Derbyshire to help meet demand.

“Around five hundred of us came together last year to help us launch PEP&CO and now we’re ready to bring new Pep stars on board”, said PEP&CO managing director Adrian Mountford.

Over the past six months PEP&CO has revamped its ranges which has included replacing homewares with menswear, expanding both kidswear and babywear and introducing new broad appeal women's’ fashion.

PEP&CO said its appearance in Bargain Shop Wars had helped drive a significant increase in footfall to existing stores and traffic to its jobs website has risen fourfold as people look for opportunities to work with the team they see on screen.

In addition to the temporary roles, around 150 permanent jobs will be created this autumn as PEP&CO opens another 10 to 15 stores in similar high street locations. Over the next 12 months, PEP&CO expects to add an additional 35 stores to its estate.
