James and James Fulfilment – which stores, packs and ships products on behalf of nearly 400 online stores – is set to hire 125 seasonal team members and create another 15 permanent roles in the run up to Christmas.

The company, which secured an £11 million investment in March and signed a 10-year lease on a brand new building in May, has seen its growth accelerate this year, as more people turned to online shopping during and after lockdown.

James and James has already hired 60 extra fulfilment centre team members, created 18 new office-based roles and been shortlisted as a Northamptonshire Employer of the Year in 2020. With its new Brackmills building (pictured above) going live by November, it can now safely recruit even more people, as the Black Friday to Christmas shopping season begins.

James Hyde, CEO and Co-founder, explains: “We’ve already seen many more people shopping online this year and we expect that to continue, as consumers stay at home. Our new building offers six times the space of our current one, which means we can grow the team to meet demand, while remaining COVID-secure.”

The new roles will span all areas of James and James, including fulfilment centre operations, client services, marketing and technology development.

Clara Buckingham, Head of People, continues: “Delivering delight for our clients and their customers is one of our key values at James and James. As such, we’d love to hear from people in sectors such as retail and hospitality, who’ve been badly affected by the pandemic, but have so many transferable customer service and stock handling skills.”
