Crafter's companion boost staff ahead of new store
The outlet, at Dobbie’s Garden Centre in Chesterfield, will be the company’s second store launch in 2016.
As part of the store’s launch, the company held a special recruitment day to find the right candidates to form the retail team.
The day was attended by over 50 people and saw potential candidates take part in a number of tasks designed to help show off their skills.
As part of their training, the new recruits took part in a comprehensive induction process at the company’s flagship store in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
Now, the company is on the lookout for a further four candidates, which will take the total number of recruits to 15.
Sara Davies, founder of Crafter’s Companion said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be opening our next store in Chesterfield and to be able to bring new jobs to the area.
“Our new team members will be the heart of our new store, so we’ve spent a lot of time making sure we’ve chosen candidates who really understand our brand and our values.
“We’ve really enjoyed welcoming the guys to the Crafter’s Companion family and we’re looking forward to welcoming more team members in the coming months.
“The store launch is getting really close and we’re so excited. Hopefully our store will make a fantastic addition to what is already a popular garden centre, with a great reputation.”
The new Chesterfield store manager, Gurvinder Barn, added: “The team are already working really hard to get the store ready for the launch weekend. The new store will bring something unique to the area and we can’t wait for our visitors to see what’s on offer.”
The new store is set to open on 23 September.
