Morrisons recruitment hub opens in Kirkby Town Centre

by Jonathan Kearney

An empty shop unit in Kirkby Town Centre opened it’s doors earlier this week (on Monday 19 July), providing a recruitment hub for Morrisons.

The new Morrisons superstore, complete with a petrol filling station, is located on the new retail development and is now undergoing its internal fit-out ready for opening its doors over the coming months.

The Morrisons recruitment hub, based on St Chad’s Parade, will provide information about all of the latest vacancies, which can also be accessed online on the Morrisons recruitment website – www.morrisons.jobs

Morrisons colleagues will also be on-hand to answer your questions about the exciting opportunities being advertised but all applications must be completed online. If successful, candidates will be invited to attend the recruitment hub for interview.

A number of management positions have already been advertised and successful candidates will shortly be undergoing training.

The latest phase of Morrisons recruitment drive includes roles in customer services, the bakery, a butcher and the floristry section.

In addition to the new roles, the Council’s Knowsley Works team will also be able to provide residents with help and support to complete their application and prepare for an interview.

You can contact the Knowsley Works team directly by emailing employment.team@knowsley.gov.uk (please quote “Morrisons” as the subject of your email).

Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “I’m delighted to see a former empty unit in the Town Centre being brought back into use – and not only that, but it is promoting employment opportunities locally.

“We’ve already opened the doors to the first unit on the retail development and the vast majority of vacancies at KFC were filled by Knowsley residents. Hopefully this will be the case too for Morrisons latest recruitment drive.

“Remember we have our Knowsley Works team on-hand to guide you through the recruitment process including support with your application and also preparing you for interview.

“Call in to the recruitment hub or access the vacancies online from next week. Good luck!”
