More than 100 jobs are up for grabs at an event being held in a shopping centre ahead of the busy festive period.

Silverburn is hosting its annual jobs fair on Friday, October 14 in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The event, in the city's Southside, will showcase an array of full and part-time positions available. A diverse range of roles within retail and hospitality will be highlighted, including roles within Silverburn HQ.

Leading retailers including Marks & Spencer, Ernest Jones and Schuh will attend the fair at the Pollok venue.

The positions come as the centre gears up for a busy festive period - the first Christmas with no COVID-19 restrictions since 2019.

David Pierotti, general manager at Silverburn, said: “This jobs fair represents a wealth of opportunities for people to begin a long and fulfilling career in retail and hospitality.

“I started working in retail as a teenager. What began as a summer job grew into a successful career, working my way from being a Saturday boy in Burtons on Paisley High Street to managing leading retail and leisure destinations.

“I would advise anyone considering a job in retail to attend. It might just be a part-time job while you study or something that fits in with your childcare needs, but you never know where it’s going to go.”

Silverburn’s jobs fair takes place on Friday, October 14 from 11am to 4pm outside of its Next store.
