UK Flooring Direct to increase job offer

Published: 21 September 2018 - Kiran Grewal

A national online flooring retailer headquartered in Leicestershire has increased its staff numbers past 100 for the first time and is to create 60 new jobs, Insider Media has reported.

UK Flooring Direct, which moved to the Hinckley Commercial Park less than a year ago, is still on the hunt for more people in a range of sales, IT, marketing and warehouse roles.                                       

 

The company has said it is looking to take on another 60 staff in the next couple of years.

Manager director Jason Ashby, who founded the business with his wife, Lisa, said: "We are delighted to reach the 100 staff mark and credit must go to Faye who has hit the ground running in managing our recruitment as well as the training and development of the staff who were already here.

"The company has big plans for growth and we can only do that by attracting the right people who want to be part of this exciting time for the business.

"It’s important to us that we play a positive role in this area and employing as many local people as possible means a lot to the way we want the business to operate and is good for the regional economy.

"On top of that, we work hard to make this a great environment to work in, we give people opportunities to progress and, also, we look to support the local community wherever we can, especially when our staff are close to a certain project or cause.

"What’s even more exciting is that there is much more to come as we are still recruiting to continue the expansion of the business."

What do you think?


Has there been a greater uptake from retailers sourcing British-made products in the face of Brexit?
