DEBENHAMS has announced that it is on the hunt for up to 1,200 new members of staff to work in its DHL warehouse in Sherburn over the busy Christmas period.

This is in addition to the 60 roles available in Leeds, 28 in Scarborough and 15 in York and other Yorkshire stores.

The successful applicants will work on the Sherburn site, with the companies’ delivery fulfilment partner, DHL, to ensure customers get their parcels on time during one of the busiest times of the year.

They will start at the warehouse in October with flexible shift patterns and local transport is also being offered to staff living in surrounding areas.

John Forrester, vice president of Operations at DHL, said: “Our colleagues in Sherburn help bring the Christmas spirit alive so we are really keen to hear from anyone who wants to join a great team, has a strong ‘can-do’ approach and is eager to learn the ropes.”
