Swedish home furnishing retailer Ikea is looking to hire another 496 workers for its first Philippine store in Pasay City.
The company is looking to fill a wide range of vacancies—including sales associates, recovery associates, food assistants, customer service associates and more.
The company is also hiring part-timers.
The newcomers will join a team of 73 people working for Ikea in its Makati office as well as a project office at the Pasay construction site. As part of its recruitment drive, Ikea will be bringing home 20 overseas Filipino workers from Ikea stores abroad — primarily from the Middle East.
Ikea Pasay City will be the largest Ikea store in the world, with a call center operation and a supersized warehouse to support electronic commerce fulfilment.
The online store will open before the store in the second quarter of 2021.
