Demand Strong for New Jobs Up for Grabs in Glenfield

- Opening of new Bunnings Warehouse to boost local economy-

23 May 2011: Applications have flooded in from jobseekers hoping to be a part of the new Bunnings Warehouse team in Glenfield.

Advertisements were placed one week ago for the 124 jobs in sales, administration, customer-service and trade specialist areas, and over 1500 applications have been received so far. Complex Manager Derek Powell says that people from all backgrounds have applied for the roles, and that the positions suit those with a background or interest in customer service, retail or the building trades.

“Where appropriate we look for people with a trade background, ensuring the advice customers receive is both practical and first rate,” he says.

The recruitment team is still taking applications, and those who are interested in applying can contact the Glenfield recruitment team on 09 441-3247 or visit the temporary office on 225 Archers Road on weekdays from 9.00am to 5.00pm.

In addition to the recruitment opportunities, the new Bunnings Warehouse will also impact positively on the Glenfield area through an ongoing and committed community involvement programme.

Bunnings supports a wide range of community groups, environmental groups and charities at a local and regional level and actively encourages team members to get involved in many community projects.

Mr Powell says the new jobs provide an opportunity to work in a fun and challenging retail setting: “At Bunnings we offer a safe and rewarding work environment with real career opportunities.”

Locals will also have the opportunity to up-skill their DIY abilities, with the new Glenfield Bunnings Warehouse offering free in-store DIY workshops every weekend, and regular themed events.

Since entering the New Zealand market in 2001 through the acquisition of Benchmark Building Supplies, Bunnings Limited has invested in excess of $500m in New Zealand and grown to include 20 large format Bunnings Warehouses and 24 small format Bunnings stores throughout New Zealand.

The new Bunnings Glenfield Warehouse is located between Wairau Road, Archers Road and Poland Street, and is scheduled to open in the next few months.
