Found yourself out of work? Looking for a change of career? Keen on exploring a new direction?

This is believed to be in preparation for the end of the furlough scheme.

Luckily, there’s a varied number of companies that are still actively recruiting and taking applications for roles based at Manchester Arndale and they could be just what you’re looking for.

With both full time and part time roles available, here’s everything you need to know.
