The announcement by Dealz of the creation of 160 seasonal jobs in the lead up to Christmas is a welcome boost to those looking for jobs in a season known to be a key financial stress period for many.
Since launching in Ireland in September 2011, Dealz has proven popular with Irish consumers and has welcomed over 14.2 million customers in store to date. Commenting on the busy Christmas period and the creation of the new temporary positions, Jim McCarthy, CEO at Dealz, said: "The festive period is always an especially busy time for Dealz as our value-conscious customers look to stock up on Christmas decorations, stocking fillers and gifts."
Stores have already started taking applications for temporary colleagues. With applications available from local stores nation-wide, McCarthy explains the group’s delight at being able to provide new jobs for a sector that is only finding its feet again.
He said: "Employment in the retail sector is still fragile and we are really proud to have significantly increased our temporary vacancies this year. We are looking for conscientious and enthusiastic individuals, who strive to provide the best possible customer service. Many temporary colleagues last year were retained in permanent roles in the business, which is good news."
