Bensons launches fresh recruitment drive

Bensons for Beds is recruiting around 180 people nationwide to fill key roles and support growth as it steps up its transformation of the business. 

The retailer is looking to fill vacancies across its network of British stores, its four distribution centres, its head office in Accrington, Lancashire, and its dedicated manufacturing site in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. 

A wide range of roles are on offer including digital jobs, merchandising, drivers, warehouse operatives, customer care specialists, engineering technicians, production operatives, sales consultants and store managers. The transformation of Bensons’ online offer through its website, as well as the introduction of new technology across the business, has made digital a key area of investment. 

It is also working with organisations including: Career Transition Partnership, to help ex-military personnel into roles such as logistics, engineering and planning; New Futures Networks, to help ex-offenders move into roles such as manufacturing and warehousing; and Job Centre Plus, on pre-employment training for contact centre, production and warehouse roles. 

Bensons’ HR director, Maxine Blackwell, says: “The exciting top-to-bottom transformation of Bensons means we need around 180 colleagues to join our team. We’re on the lookout for people who match who we are – devoted, driven and even daring. And because the perfect night’s sleep is what we’re passionate about, there’s a real mission at the heart of what we do as we bring our customers real peace of mind.”
