Pricecheck strengthens workforce with 100 new employees in past year

FMCG wholesaler and distributor Pricecheck has recruited 100 new employees in the past 12 months.

The Sheffield-based wholesaler’s investment in talent has expanded the workforce across all areas of the business. Many of the roles have been created in the past year due to developments in new departments such as ecommerce and business change.

The new starters mean that Pricecheck now employs 300 people.

Debbie Harrison, joint managing director, said: “Recruitment processes during the pandemic have certainly been different to normal. However, we recognised early on that to continue to tackle the challenges, and ultimately to grow the business, we needed to keep expanding our teams and the knowledge within them.

“We’ve focused on welcoming experts in specialist areas alongside a number of graduates – a combination we believe will bring new ideas and challenge current ways of working.”

Pricecheck’s latest recruits will help to strengthen the company, particularly its IT team where investment in new technology has been a main focus. The employment of software developers, IT support and an IT project manager has taken the team to 10, with more jobs still available.

The wholesaler is pushing towards its £200 million turnover target within the next five years, and its ‘Vision 200’ strategy has kept the company moving forward throughout the pandemic after hitting the £100 million turnover milestone in July last year.

Pricecheck offers over 8,000 branded products to customers in the UK and to more than 80 countries globally.

The global distributor currently has a large number of office roles available across all areas of the business including IT, marketing, buying and business change.
