Redundant retail staff offered interviews at The Original Factory Shop

22nd February 2023 |

The Original Factory Shop has offered guaranteed interviews for retail staff made redundant by, or at risk of losing their jobs at; Wilko, Argos, New Look, B&Q, Paperchase, Tk Maxx, and M&Co.

The Burnley-headquartered value retailer says it has 80 roles to fill across 185 stores.

Recent estimates suggest that nearly 15,000 retail workers have lost their jobs so far in 2023.

Charlie Cuthbert, The Original Factory Shop’s talent acquisition lead, said: “This pledge will hopefully mean more people will remain employed while at the same time bringing their retail expertise and fantastic transferable skills to The Original Factory Shop.”

The Original Factory Shop recorded its first return to profit since the beginning of the Pandemic when it posted a pre-tax profit of £6.6m in September.
