Management positions are on offer at some of the UK’s leading retailers

Bluewater is promising its most diverse job offerings to date as it prepares to host its fifth annual jobs fayre next week.

Opportunities at the shopping centre include management positions at more than 80 of its leading retailers and restaurants, such as Five Guys, Arriva Buses, Hackett, Next, Showcase Cinemas and John Lewis.

MP for Dartford Gareth Johnson and mayor of Dartford John Burrell will be visiting the event, alongside Sue Rogers, the customer service operations manager for the Department of Work and Pensions, and Bluewater’s general manager, Robert Goodman.

Since its foundation five years ago, the jobs fayre has helped match 6,050 suitable candidates to vacancies at Bluewater.

In total, Bluewater and on-site recruitment and training facility The Learning Shop have found employment for over 46,200 people and trained in excess of 21,500 people.

Mr Johnson commented: “I am delighted to be a part of the fifth anniversary celebrations for this year’s jobs fayre at Bluewater. This key employment initiative has achieved so much for the community since it launched five years ago, and the total number of people to benefit since the fayre’s inception is a testament to the great work by the team at The Learning Shop and Bluewater.

“In addition, every year we have seen the variety of jobs available grow, which creates an even more diverse range of opportunities for local people. I would like to wish all the hopeful candidates the very best luck when applying for positions on September 9.”

The jobs fayre will be held next Friday (September 9), while preparation sessions will take place for hopeful candidates on Thursday, September 8.
