I was looking through the Costco UK website the other day and noticed that they now have a whole page dedicated to recruiting for all warehouse, and specifically for the new Leicester Costco location that will be opening sometime soon (late 2012/early 2013, I think). If you live in the area and have been looking for a job or would like to work for someplace as great as Costco, then now is your chance.
On the Costco UK site, you can find out all of the details about working for Costco UK, job positions available, but unfortunately, you cannot submit your application online. To submit an application, you will need to download the form and send that, along with a CV and cover letter to them via regular post. On this same page you can also get an application that you can return to your local warehouse for consideration (this is not for the Leicester store). They also have an application available if you are more interested in working in their Home Office located in Watford. At Costco you can get starting pay of £6.70 per hour, rising to £10.75 per hour and for salaried Supervisory roles you can expect a starting pay of £27,500pa.
I wonder if, as in the US, they have trailers onsite at the new Leicester location to accept applications? In any case, this is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a great place to work. At our store in Watford I was talking to a couple of employees recently and they were both telling me how great Costco was to work for and how they have both been there for more than 15 years! That’s pretty amazing and says a lot about how good Costco is to work for here in the UK.
