IKEA Will Hire About 500 Employees
The said establishment, which they plan on building in Pasay City, has been said to be the biggest in the entire globe.
It will house warehouses in tremendous sizes; it will even have a contact or a call center to support the operations they plan on having!
With IKEA’s plan to fill the positions out, a lot of people can actually take this opportunity to get jobs. In addition to that, they said that they have these openings until June of the year 2021.
People who would be hired will be able to be a part of the team currently working with IKEA.
The 73-people team is working in the Makati office; and about 20 people who are returning from other countries or Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
This concept will relocate IKEA workers and employees working in or located in various countries; but the priority would be OFWs in the Middle East.
Christian Rokjkaer, the Managing Director of the IKEA Southeast Asia and Mexico, said that the company’s ideals is to build and establish better lives for many people.
He’s also the owner of IKEA stores in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, as well as Mexico and the Philippines.
They plan on creating stable and wholesome jobs, as well as workplaces for people.
The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. Creating meaningful, stable jobs and great workplaces is just one way that we fulfill this vision; more important than ever during these challenging times.”
10th IKEA in Asia
Did you know that the Philippine store will be the 10th in the entire Southeast Asia? Originally, this store should have opened this year. But, due to the pandemic and some other changes, it’ll be open by the second (2nd) quarter of the year 2021.
In addition to that, the company said that they’ll offer about 8,000 different products in the store. Moreover, if you’re stressed out or worried when it comes to being a part-time employee, you shouldn’t.
Georg Platzer, IKEA Philippines Market Development Manager and Store Manager said that they treat part-time members or employees as full-time members as well.
What this means is that these employees are also given the same treatment and the same benefits as that of full-timers.
Part-timers are treated like full-time members of the family, with all the same benefits as full-timers on a prorated basis—including health insurance, annual leave, subsidized meals, and Ikea discounts.”

That being said, the company is looking for the following personnel and workers:
