Dixons Carphone goes to Stoke-on-Trent to hunt more Phones 4u staff
Dixons Carphone is holding a recruitment day in Phones 4u's heartland in Stoke-on-Trent.
The ‘meet and greet’ event, which takes place today at the Stoke Brittania Stadium, is targeting former Phones 4u staff. Dixons Carphone recruitment teams will discuss possible headquarter roles with applicants.
The recruitment day follows Dixons Carphone’s offer to take on 1,500 former Phones 4u staff, shortly after the company went into administration last week.
Dixons Carphone said it has already received over 2,000 applications for the 1,500 roles.
Carphone Dixons has also taken on all Phones 4u staff employed in Phones 4u concessions in Dixons Currys/PC World megastores.
Phones 4u founder John Caudwell launched the business in Stoke-on-Trent in 1986.
