Wholesaler Pricecheck has taken on 21 new recruits this summer in its biggest graduate and placement drive to date.
The Sheffield-based wholesaler has added 11 new employees under its graduate scheme and 10 university students for a yearlong placement this month.
The new members of staff will sit across the business with six in finance, seven in sales, four in the warehouse and buying, two in business development, and one in each of the IT, marketing and customer operations departments.
Those joining via the graduate scheme this year include Jack Harrison, son of co-managing director Debbie Harrison and Kate Joel, who was involved in the placement programme last year.
There are 10 students on this year’s placement scheme compared to six last year.
“Our team are the very heart of the business and we are continually investing in the best people to help drive Pricecheck forward,” said Harrison. “We have ambitious growth targets, and the skills our new recruits bring to the team, partnered with the experience from our existing employees, are invaluable to the business. We’re extremely proud of our relationship with universities and how we are working in partnership to deliver quality paid placements and eventual graduate job opportunities.”
