Trago Mills are looking to extend their business outside Devon and Cornwall with the first of their newest outlets being currently under construction in Wales. The company currently have three existing outlets. Operating since the 1960s, they have established themselves as a very successful independent discount retailer.
The new Trago Mills 20,000 square foot store is due to open in Merthyr Tydfil in Spring 2018. The new store is also expected to include a café and petrol station. The Merthyr Tydfil Council leader Kevin O'Neil has welcomed Trago Mills choosing to base one of their newest outlets in Wales and has been quoted as stating that it will contribute to the local aims of developing strategies to ensure the advancement of economic wellbeing in the area and will assist in combating any impact from industrial decline.
The first phase of recruiting has now launched with the opening of Trago Mills' newest outlets bringing a welcome job boost to the Merthyr Tydfil area. It is expected that the vacancies for security staff and warehouse staff will be the first to be filled. The second phase of recruitment will cover all of the retail and administrative staff as they will not be needed until closer to the actual opening date of the outlet. It is estimated that a total of approximately 350 jobs vacancies will need to be filled. Trago Mills are planning to work closely with Jobcentreplus and the Economic Growth Partnership during their recruiting drive to ensure the process runs smoothly and that jobseekers from the Merthyr Tydfil area are given every necessary assistance.
The district manager for the South-East Wales Jobcentreplus, Bernadette Jones, has expressed her excitement at the job opportunities that Trago Mills are bringing to the area and stated that her team will be closely involved in the recruiting process.
