North West tech group, THG says it will be creating 500 permanent jobs in the region before the end of the year.

It stated that it would be advertising the roles as it heads towards its peak trading period.

“It is an uncertain time for many people and businesses alike. This uncertainty has led to an unprecedented opportunity for THG to add to our exceptionally talented workforce. With our busiest trading period of the year approaching, we are excited to welcome 500 new starters ahead of Christmas,” said Matthew Moulding, Founder, CEO and Chairman of THG.

“Our headquarters are in Manchester, and this recruitment drive will create sustainable and rewarding jobs for people across the North West, and will provide opportunities for all ages, backgrounds and abilities. There has never been a greater or more important time to invest in the people of Greater Manchester and the surrounding area.” 

The majority of the jobs will be in its technology services operation, THG Ingenuity.

The Group added that it would be working “with local partners” to create an in-house Skills Academy to retrain people who are out of work as a result of the pandemic.

THG employs more than 8000 staff around the world, adding more than 2000 in the last 12 months.
