Ikea PH steps up hiring


    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.
