Named the best place to work in the UK by the world’s largest jobsite Indeed, Wren Kitchens employs over 4,700 staff, and this week, it has hosted two recruitment events dedicated to those employed by Bathstore.

Successful interviews have already taken place, and new recruits will benefit from Wren’s extensive in-house training at its headquarters in Barton-upon-Humber.

A third Bathstore Recruitment Event will be held at Wren’s Solihull showroom on Wednesday, 3rd July from 10am to 1pm. Those interested should register by emailing recruitment@wrenkitchens.com

The retail positions Wren Kitchens are offering are:

This comes as part of Wren’s extensive recruitment programme with plans of employing around 600 Kitchen Designers over the next 12-months alone. These new retail roles support the continual growth of the business, including the opening of 12 new showrooms across the UK this year.

Locations of upcoming Wren showrooms include Sunderland, Blackburn, Shrewsbury, Acton, Stockton, Enfield, Harrogate, Edinburgh, Woverhampton, Edmonton and Bradford.

A Wren Kitchens spokesperson said: “Those who face losing their jobs at Bathstore have transferrable attributes that we’re looking for including first-class customer service and creative designer skills to help our customers’ dream kitchens come to life.

“Wren is a family-run, passionate business that’s committed to developing and nurturing talent and we’re looking for new recruits to join the Wren family to help shape our exciting journey and lead the way in the retail kitchen industry.”

Every week Wren designs, manufactures and delivers 2,000 kitchens to customers’ homes through its own supply chain.
