Waitrose hosts recruitment day for new Knutsford store
Waitrose is to host a recruitment day for its forthcoming new Knutsford convenience store on Tuesday 26 April at the Cottons Hotel, Manchester Road.
Open to anyone who may be interested in a career at the distinguished supermarket, the open day will provide the opportunity for local people to find out more about the 65 positions available. It will also give residents the opportunity to learn more about working for the retailer, which is the food stores arm of the John Lewis Partnership.
On hand between 10am and 4pm will be members of the Waitrose personnel team, who will be able to talk through the requirements for each role and the application process. Those interested can also apply online directly at www.waitrosejobs.com.
The advantages of working at Waitrose are extensive, and all employees of the retailer become Partners in the John Lewis Partnership, enjoying benefits including access to more than 5,000 learning courses available through the Partnership’s Learning Centre, a pension, bonus, holiday and leisure facilities, clubs and societies, and education subsidies*. Just last month, Partners at Waitrose received 18% of their annual salary as a bonus in their March pay packet.
Andy Hewson, Personnel Growth Manager at Waitrose, says, “We’re really looking forward to meeting those in the local area who are keen to join us on our new and exciting journey in the town, and make the new store a success and a real jewel in Knutsford’s crown.”
Waitrose Knutsford is due to open on 9 June 2011, and will occupy the former Blockbusters and Travelbag retail units in Princess Street.
The Waitrose Knutsford careers day will take place on Tuesday 26 April, at Cottons Hotel, Manchester Rd, Knutsford, WA16 0SU, from 10.00 – 16.00 on a drop in basis.
