IKEA, the world’s leading home furnishing retailer, is hiring close to 500 workers for its first Philippine store set to open next year.
In a statement, IKEA said it plans to employ 496 co-workers for its flagship store at the MOA complex in Pasay City.
The store, which will be IKEA’s largest in the world, would also house a call center and a warehouse to support e-commerce operations.
IKEA is opening its online store before the physical store in the second quarter next year.
For the recruitment, IKEA said it is looking for sales associates, recovery associates, food assistants, as well as customer service associates.
Part-time positions are also available and they would be treated like full-time members with the same benefits on a prorated basis including health insurance, annual leave, subsidized meals and discounts.
As part of the recruitment drive, IKEA will be bringing home 20 overseas Filipino workers from IKEA stores overseas, primarily from the Middle East.
