Dixons Retail Launches Dedicated Recruitment Website, Dixonscareers.com
Dixons Retail plc, Europe’s leading specialist electrical retailer and services company, and the operator of leading brands Currys, PC World and Knowhow™ in the UK, has launched Dixonscareers.com in time for its annual seasonal recruitment drive.
The brand new site, managed in-house by the dedicated recruitment team, covers recruitment for both temporary and permanent roles, and features all available jobs across the UK and Ireland including store-based roles, office positions, roles with the Knowhow™ distribution network and call centre, and positions with Equanet, its b2b arm.
In line with recent upgrades for Currys.co.uk and PCWorld.co.uk. Dixonscareers.com is a responsive site, meaning it automatically detects the screen size of the user’s device and adapts accordingly. As well as current roles and details on how to apply, the site features an overview of the company’s history, brands, culture and senior management. It also contains links to the recruiting team’s active social media programme via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest.
Bridget Hutchinson, Head of Recruitment, comments, “Dixons Retail has undergone massive changes for the better in the last three or four years. We are firmly focused on our customers and delivering world-class service. Whatever role you are looking for, it is an exciting place to work. Although we will always need temporary and part-time recruits to accommodate busier times, we are hearing from many more potential recruits seeing us as a serious career option.”
