Job va­can­cies are be­ing cre­ated at stores in Peter­bor­ough’s Queens­gate shop­ping cen­tre.

Va­can­cies are open­ing up at many stores as stu­dents give up part-time jobs to re­turn to their stud­ies and as re­tail­ers pre­pare for Christ­mas.

Cen­tre di­rec­tor Mark Broad­head said: “If you’re look­ing for part-time work or a ca­reer in re­tail, now is the cru­cial time to get in touch with Queens­gate Shop­ping Cen­tre’s re­tail­ers.

“Gaps form as stu­dents move away from the city and an in­crease in the im­pend­ing trade over Christ­mas means ‘open sea­son’ for job hunters.”

Among the job cre­at­ing re­tail­ers is Ar­gos, which is look­ing to fill po­si­tions over Christ­mas.

The re­tailer will be­hold­ing a re­cruit­ment event at The Bull Ho­tel, in Peter­bor­ough, later this month.

Fash­ion chain Next is one of the big­gest re­cruiters over Christ­mas and is ex­pected to take more than 80 staff this year.

Pri­mark says it has a con­stant pa­per­less re­cruit­ment pol­icy with jobs avail­able on­line weekly.

Top­man and Top­shop will also join the re­cruit­ing pe­riod this month and have also taken on sev­eral BHS staff, fol­low­ing the brand’ s clo­sure.

Later this month, M&S be­gins its part­ner­ship with The Prince’s Trust pro­gramme, which will see 20 to 30 in­di­vid­u­als en­rol in work ex­pe­ri­ence at the Queens­gate store.

Over four weeks, sev­eral will progress into part time roles over the fes­ti­val pe­riod and fur­ther po­si­tions will be­come avail­able for the gen­eral pub­lic.

Pan­dora and HMV are also re­cruit­ing for Christ­mas.
