Debenhams launches staff search for new Wandsworth store

Renowned for its unrivalled portfolio of British design talent, Debenhams is on the look-out for more than 80 retail stars to work in its new store set to open in Wandsworth this autumn.

Sam Davidson has been recruited as the new store manager who will deliver the new store. 

Sam says: “We are confident customers will be delighted with the new store and are excited to showcase our extensive product offering and range of services.

“Opening the store will create more than 80 new permanent jobs and a mixture of seasonal temporary positions for the Christmas season. We’re feeling very positive about the creation of new jobs for local people and it is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in developing a career in retail.”

To help with recruitment for the new store and to support the local community, store manager Sam has been working with the Wandsworth Job Centre to help unemployed clients find new careers with Debenhams.

Sam will also be hosting a series of presentations for Job Centre clients to show them what an exciting career with Debenhams has to offer.  Prospective employees will then be invited to join a Sector Based Work Academy to help them prepare for applying for jobs at Debenhams Wandsworth.

Sam continued: “We are looking for people with the passion and drive to deliver the great service our customers deserve. The majority of roles will be on the sales floor, with additional positions available back of house. We would encourage anyone looking for a fast paced and exciting place to work to apply through our website.”

The new store will showcase Debenhams’ exclusive designer ranges from fashion designers such as Jasper Conran, Henry Holland and Ben De Lisi.

Debenhams Wandsworth will also boast an impressive cosmetics department with international brands such as Clarins and Estee Lauder coming to Wandsworth.  The store will also have a fragrance hall as well as Womenswear, Accessories, Lingerie, Menswear, Childrenswear and Homeware departments.  As well as hosting a Debenhams restaurant, the new store will also feature a Patisserie Valerie coffee shop.
