Battersea Power Station launches jobs drive as it prepares to open
After a multi-year programme to the rebuild/repurpose London’s Battersea Power Station, the shopping centre, leisure, office and homes destination is on scheduled to open this year and a recruitment drive is under way.
The owners are now staging a major jobs fair for the six-acre venue that is set to create over 2,500 mostly-retail jobs.
Over 70 companies will be attending the ‘Employ Wandsworth – A Jobs Fair for Battersea and Nine Elms at Battersea Power Station’ event on 13 July. They will include Zara, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Uniqlo and The Body Shop, naming just a few of the national and international brands opening at the fully-restored Grade II listed centre.
Zara, the first brand to be announced on the centre’s Electric Boulevard becoming its first store in south London, will be recruiting for 300-350 roles at the jobs fair.
Simon Murphy, CEO at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said: “To see over 70 British and international brands attending a jobs fair here at Battersea Power Station is a very proud moment for the project as it shows just how much the regeneration of this London landmark is contributing to the local community through exciting new career opportunities and a significant financial injection into the local economy.”
Once open, Battersea Power Station will form the centrepiece of a new ‘15-minute’ live, work and play neighbourhood, which will act as a town centre for the immediate and wider local communities, a new business quarter for the capital and an experiential destination for Londoners and international visitors.
Inside the Power Station there will be over 100 retail stores restaurants and cafes, unique event spaces, and a cinema. It also includes a ‘chimney lift experience’, which will take visitors 109 metres up to the top of the Power Station’s north west chimney offering 360-degree views of London’s skyline.
