Poundland to create 2,000 temporary jobs over Christmas

The company will be recruiting staff for most of its 400 UK stores and will also offer jobs at ten temporary Christmas stores that are due to open over the next two months.

Jim McCarthy, CEO at Poundland, explained: "Christmas is a really busy time for Poundland and we’re thrilled, especially when employment figures are so low, that we can offer even more people a job over the festive period.

"We’re looking for enthusiastic, hard-working people, who enjoy interacting with customers to give the best service possible."

Poundland said that last year’s intake resulted in 30% of temporary staff being offered permanent roles within in the business.
