At time of writing, 252 permanent new jobs are set to be created upon the completion of the £20m Market Place Shopping Centre in Bolton. The scheme makes a significant contribution to the city’s rising employment status.
The biggest employers highlighted include New Look (43 jobs), Nando’s (40 jobs), The Light (38 jobs) and Clarks (25 jobs). All of these brands have created roles from customer service and back of house, right through to management level.
Dean Haslam, store manager at Topshop says, “Following the closure of BHS in Bolton, every effort has been made by our HR department at Topshop to accommodate Arcadia employees in our stunning new store which is due to open on 22 September. We are especially thrilled to be opening one of our only new stores in the UK this year in Bolton, clearly demonstrating the changing perception and economy in Bolton.”
