FORTY new jobs have been created by the new B&Q Warehouse in Invincible Road, Farnborough, set to open on May 1.

The new store will have a staff of 300 with 240 of these transferring from the existing store in Solarton Road and a further 20 already recruited. The remaining jobs on offer are for part-time workers, with vacancies across all departments.

General manager Mark Hill is hoping to recruit individuals with 'star quality', who will shine in management positions, as well as front of store greeters, night-crew and customer advisors on the shop floor.

Jobs are also on offer for skilled 'trade experts' with practical experience in the home improvement trade. Two plumbers willing to take the plunge and one live-wire electrician are needed to complete the store's complement of nine experts.

If you are interested in applying for a particular position at the Farnborough B&Q Warehouse, please call the recruitment hotline on 0800 7812313.
