Council helps The Range recruit staff for new town store
The opening of new home, garden and leisure superstore The Range on the Tame Valley Industrial Estate is set to create 70 new jobs.
Tamworth Borough Council is playing a leading role in helping the company and Jobcentre Plus to fill the vacancies by holding the interviews and inductions at its Marmion House offices.
Interviews for a mix of full and part-time positions will be held on September 4 and 5, with inductions being held on October 4, 5 and 8.
The Range is set to open on October 12 in the old B&Q store on the Tame Valley Industrial Estate.
Cllr Steve Claymore, Cabinet member for Economic Development and Enterprise, said: “The opening of The Range is another boost to Tamworth’s economy, providing a valuable addition to what the borough has to offer, as well as creating 70 new jobs for local people.
“We are delighted to be able to actively support The Range – in conjunction with Jobcentre Plus – by allowing the company to hold its interviews and induction days at Marmion House.”
