Dobbies has begun its recruitment of 120 full and part-time team members for its new store at The Junction Retail and Leisure Park, Antrim, ahead of store opening October 2023.
David Gibson, Regional Manager at Dobbies, commented: “With fitout now progressing well at our Antrim store, we are thrilled to begin the recruitment process.
“We are looking for a range of skillsets to create the best possible store team, with experts in gardening, food, restaurant delivery and operations advertised now. There will be further opportunities later in the year, once the management team is fully on board."
This will be Dobbies’ second venture in Northern Ireland, and the largest in its UK portfolio showcasing a rejuvenated store concept with outdoor and indoor plant areas; areas for gardening products, outdoor furniture, pets, gifting and toys, as well as cookshop and home décor; a foodhall, a children’s soft play area and new restaurant and café.
Expected to attract a footfall of around one million visitors per annum, Dobbies is committed to investing in the local communities and is working towards establishing partnerships with local schools and charities.
