Studio.co.uk creates 750 jobs just in time for Christmas
Express Gifts, owner of online shopping brand, Studio.co.uk, has appointed more than 750 seasonal workers to support what is expected to be a record-breaking Christmas season.
The major recruitment drive has seen the retailer fill roles from warehouse operatives to customer service advisors, expanding the retailer’s headcount by nearly two thirds. More than 40 per cent of the new employees have previously covered Christmas work at the brand and chose to return once again.
Whilst there have already been several vacancies filled, Studio.co.uk has confirmed that it is now looking to expand the team in the financial services contact centre in the final run up to Christmas.
All seasonal employees will be based at the firm’s Accrington headquarters and will receive a number of benefits, including a generous discount on the Studio.co.uk range of clothes, toys, homeware and personalized gifts.
Paul Kendrick, Managing Director of Express Gifts Ltd, said: “Christmas has always been an extremely busy period for us, however this year is on track to be bigger than ever. The nation’s love of good value gifting has certainly been working in our favour this year, so we are now well positioned to meet the increased demand that the season brings. It’s great to welcome back some familiar faces who have worked with us for a number of Christmas – they really are part of the family now.”
Express Gifts Ltd., owned by Findel plc and trading under Studio.co.uk, is an online personal shopping service with flexible payment options. It stocks over 60,000 products, including clothing, homeware and gifts.
