Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

New B&Q for Bedford

Published: 4 April 2012
It's claimed to be the largest town in the country without a B&Q store, but that's all set to change with plans under way for a new £18.5m development at Ampthill Road.
New B&Q for Bedford
A B&Q spokeperson told DIY Week: "B&Q can confirm that in partnership with HPG, we are looking forward to opening a new store in Bedford, at the development at Ampthill Road, adjacent to Interchange Retail Park.

"The store is scheduled to open in 2013 and we are looking forward to serving the people of Bedford with all their home improvement needs in the near future."

Planning permission was granted by Bedford Borough Council earlier this week, and the superstore development will reportedly include office units and a new car delearship. It is thought the new DIY store will bring around 150 new jobs to the area.

UPDATE: Please contact B&Q to apply for jobs. This is a news story hosted on trade magazine website diyweek.net and is not associated with the retailer or its recruitment department.

Why do so many idiots here thinking they can just post a message on a random website, asking for a job there?
Duh, send B&Q a CV, go through the job centre or through their website like you'd do for ANY OTHER JOB. They're not going to be searching the internet for people that can't even be bothered to contact them directly.

In order to be considered for job opportunities at any B&Q you will need to apply online via there website www.diy.com click on the careers link at the bottom of the page. You should then be able to search for job vacancies anywhere in the country.
You will also be able to fill out an online assessment to then appear on the jobs pool that each store can access.
From memory you can apply to be considered for an area or selected stores etc...
Hope this helps :-)
