HEREFORD’S new Debenhams store is on the lookout for everyone from ‘fashion professionals’ to restaurant workers, with 100 jobs on offer.

Opening in April on the Old Market site, the 58,000 square foot store will feature a café as well as fashion and homeware departments.

Following last week’s announcement from new neighbours Waitrose that they would be creating 150 new jobs, Debenhams are currently recruiting for a further 100 full- and part-time positions .

Sales director Ty Edwards said: “We are looking for passionate people with a great attitude to work across a variety of roles.

“Our job site is already live and we are looking forward to meeting the potential candidates, particularly fashion professionals.”

The new store – bordering Newmarket Street in the western corner of the site ¬– will feature menswear and womenswear from the Designers at Debenhams range as well as a collection service for the store’s website.

Well, if they can't do basic maths they should go broke!
The title of this here article says 150 jobs and in the text of the article it says a mere 100 are required.
Thats 50 extra staff all standing around doing nothing.
Quite frankly, if that is the way they run their business I shall be getting my application in sharpish.!

I wouldn't employ you if you think Debenhams wrote this article.

If you read on its says "are looking for passionate people with a great attitude to work", it would be clear you guys haven't got a great attitude to anything apart from moaning.

This word 'passionate' that was first introduced by the public sector during their mass job creation programme. It's now dug itself in to the entire management speak vocabulary.
Why can they no longer say we want to employ good hardworking and honest people? Nowadays, they thirst and yearn to meet passionate people. Show us passion during the job interview they demand. Demonstrate to us how bloody passionate you are. Good bloody grief!
I'd like to take these types who yearn for passion, hand them a shovel, introduce them to a vast pile of earth and say, 'now move the bloody lot and while your at it show me your passion'.

With so many people seeking work they can pretty well ask for anything they want, and likely get it.

”Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”

100 plus 150 = 250 jobs. (Debs and Waitrose.)
Hereford Futures promised 1100 jobs on the site according to the old website.
Difference is 850.
Were the local Construction workers to be counted or not?
Anyone know how 850 is made up?
Cynical by nature 850 sounds a little exaggerated.

Yes, my old friend and colleague TwoWheelsGood often used to say, 'it's allways a thousand jobs and millions of pounds in savings'.
Of course it's a pile of gnats urine. It's all nonsensical codswallop spewed out by these incompetent bungling idiots, who, unfortunately for us, have their hands upon our economic levers of power.
Yeah, we are 850 passionate and suffering people short of what we were promised. And, not forgetting their other vow and pledge that no trader from High Town would be allowed to leave and enter the promised land, which is the OLM. Now? Well, the rules have changed a little haven't they!
Stanhope and their team of operational lightweights, keen to fill the units with anything and everything, have forgotten this pledge and now existing jobs from Next and TK Max are all moving in as we inch ever closer to the figure of a thousand jobs.

We will come out of this economical dip, a few green shoots of recovery are showing on the Herefordshire horizon. The Rotherwas enterprise zone, the 'Left Bank' in new ownership, the expansion of 'Allpay' and a new retailer moving into the old 'Comet' store. In a few years shoppers will be flooding into our fair County, we're on the up, so come on smile a bit.

This is good more job opportunities will be available but just had a browse on the website at the job's advertised.

I have no idea weather all standard till worker jobs have been taken in the past week or they were never advertised? But the only jobs listed on the website are supervisor or loss prevention job titles.

The thing with Hereford is there are not many chances to find a job and as a result, a lot of young people are struggling to find job's at all because most job vacancy's will require experience (How can they gain experience when they are rarely given a chance?)

The positions on the Debenham's website all require experience which gives no chance for young people who have been looking for job's for quite some time. Chances are they will end up bringing in people from other town's to fill the positions.
