Solihull Council are working in partnership with Waitrose to help local people secure the 100+ jobs that will be created when their new store opens in May 2016.
The store, on Homer Road, will offer positions covering a range of tasks in the following areas: Customer Café/Service Counters and Checkouts/Replenishment. If you have a passion for good food and delivering exceptional service, you could be the person Waitrose is looking for.
A jointly hosted information event will be held at the Ramada Hotel, New Road, Solihull on Friday 12 February 2016, 5.30 – 6.30pm. This will be a great opportunity to find out more about the roles available, the recruitment process and what it is like to be a Waitrose Partner. Solihull Council will also be there to talk about the employment support that they can offer to local residents.
Councillor Joe Tildesley, Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Culture said: “We are delighted to welcome Waitrose to Solihull. This new store opening will significantly enhance the town’s retail offer, as well as benefiting the local community with the new jobs this development will bring.”
Speaking of their current nationwide programme of new store openings, Waitrose director of development, Nigel Keen, said: “At a time when many retailers’ estates are contracting, we are delighted to be opening new shops around the country and giving people the opportunity to become Partners in our business. These new shops will go beyond the traditional supermarket, delivering exciting modern shopping experiences.”
