AO is recruiting for 250 new members of staff at its logistics hub in Crewe as it adapts to higher levels of customer demand.
The electricals pureplay has launched a recruitment drive as it expands its services at a time when orders are rising fast following a consumer shift online during coronavirus lockdown.
In the last three months it has added more than 225,000 sq ft of warehouse space and another warehouse with a further 115,000 sq ft of space is due to open in Stafford in August.
David Ashwell, MD of AO Logistics, said: “We’ve been quick to adapt to meet increased customer demand and we’re investing in the future, adding more space and hundreds of new, quality jobs for people in Cheshire and Staffordshire. We’re proud to be a growing local employer with a history of creating careers in phenomenal business where the sky is the limit.”
“Every one of the new recruits will also be part of AO’s recently announced incentive scheme, the Value Creation Plan. The revolutionary new scheme is the first of its kind in the UK and will give every AO-er the opportunity to earn around one times’ salary linked to the business’ success over the next five years.”
“We’ve proudly provided a lifeline to customers during Covid and a safe working environment for our people. Now, we’re doubling down on our expertise and infrastructure to make sure that we’re in a great position to cement the changes and keep serving customers brilliantly moving out of lockdown.”
