Tuffnells, the nationwide irregular freight consignment specialist, has pledged to interview any workers whose job at the Marks & Spencer distribution centre in Warrington is under threat.
Following the retailer’s announcement that it would close its Hardwick site in September - a move which affected up to 450 staff members - Tuffnells wants to hear from experienced people in order to meet growing demand.
Jonathan Bunting, chief operating officer of Connect Group PLC, which owns Tuffnells, explained: “We sympathise with all the workers affected by the recent news in Warrington. As we reach a busy period of year, we have a number of vacancies to fill, and as a result we are delighted to be in a position to be able to guarantee interviews to all experienced people who are interested in joining our team.”
Tuffnells has 37 depots nationwide and employs over 2,000 people. It has strong regional links in the North-West and recently celebrated 100 years of distributing to customers.
Bunting added: “In addition to our vacancies for warehouse operatives, we’re keen to speak with qualified and experienced drivers who may also lose their jobs as a result of the news. My message to those impacted by the M&S decision is simple – get in touch with Tuffnells.”
