IKEA Latvia will be searching for dozens of employees for different load jobs. The first store in Latvia will open in autumn 2018 with more than 200 employees.
“IKEA’s priority is to care for people – employees, clients and everyone else – for their well-being, safety and everyday life. Thus, we serve for growth-enhancing culture and for equal and responsible working environment – from various trainings to safe everyday work, i.e. all IKEA employees wear uniforms and safety shoes. All over the world IKEA is dedicated to its values based on togetherness – our strength is mutual trust, goals and fun working together. It explains why for the last three years IKEA has been recognised as one of the best employers in the retail sector in Lithuania,” says Inga Filipova, IKEA Latvia Store Manager.
In the spring and summer of 2018, IKEA Latvia will search for more than 30 employees in sales, more than 30 in customer relations, more than 20 in catering, more than 20 in logistics and more than 20 employees in cleaning. Job opportunities will be for both full and part-time employees. “Globally and also in Latvia IKEA will offer a competitive compensation package and maintain a strong company culture. It ensures a pleasant microclimate, making people happy at work, and provides long-term perspectives for building a great career – everyone is entitled to grow professionally and as an individual, which might include work prospects in another department of their interest. The company invests a lot in training, allowing young people to gain first work experience and support their future career. IKEA plans to offer internships next year,” adds I. Filipova. Job offers are available here.
This autumn the largest IKEA store in the Baltics will open about 8 km from Riga centre: at the intersection of Juglas and Biķernieku Street. The store will cover close to 35,000 square meters, filled with a wide range of home furnishing products. The local restaurant will offer a real taste of Sweden with specialties such as meatballs with lingonberries or salmon dishes. It will be a family-friendly shop with a supervised child playground, play areas throughout the store, baby care rooms and preferred family parking.
