Liquor retailer Endeavour Group is recruiting more than 1600 new casual staff for its Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores ahead of Christmas.
According to the group, the increase in staff reflects how Covid-19 has changed the way consumers shop.
Dan Murphy’s contactless direct-to-boot service for people ordering online has seen a significant growth during Covid-19. Last week, the retailer celebrated its 100,000th direct-to-boot pickup. To meet the increasing demand, the retailer is seeking more than 1000 casual team members with customer assistant roles available across all 242 stores.
“More customers than ever are opting to use contactless delivery or our popular direct-to-boot pick up, which we have rolled out to almost 170 stores,” said Siobhan Pelc, head of culture and people at Dan Murphy’s, part of Endeavour Group. “These great additional customer service functionalities require additional team members, especially during our busiest trading period.”
Meanwhile, BWS is hiring more than 600 liquor team members across metro and regional Australia for its upcoming summer trading season.
“We are looking for motivated, customer-focussed candidates with excellent communications skills and with a positive attitude. Traditionally, many successful applicants include university students who are on a summer break as well as people with a background in the hospitality industry ,” Pelc said.
