11,000 assemble themselves for 300 Ulster Ikea jobs

Monday, July 30, 2007

By Emily Moulton

More than 11,000 people descended upon the Esporta Health Club in east Belfast at the weekend for Swedish furniture giant Ikea's big recruitment drive.

Organisers of the event had to open doors early after people, interested in being part of the company's big plans for its Belfast store, started queuing very early in the morning.

It was estimated that more than 7,000 people passed through the doors on Saturday alone.

The event was part of the retailer's aim to recruit 300 full-time and part-time workers.

Hmmm

Cynical?

The project is run by Business in the Community (BITC) - a group of more than 700 firms, with a further 1,600 participating in programmes and campaigns - and headed by US urban regeneration wizard Bill Boler, who plotted Harlem's economic revival.

What's he done?

He's got a tesco into the area(? Has he though, I thought it was coming anyway in their world domination plans AND its going to seriously put strain on other local shops and supermarkets so will there be anet gain in jobs really?)

How much do we pay these "experts" to get huge shops into areas?

Is a large supermarket a net job creator? Once you consider the local shops that inevitably close when faced with unmatchable price competition. Thus depressing commercial rents in the area, harming landlords etc.
