Iceland bucks the trend to hire 100 more managers.

SUPERMARKET giant Iceland, which is the biggest company in Wales, is creating 100 new managerial roles.

And its investment is bucking a trend in the sector, with Marks & Spencer and Morrisons the most recent to announce a reduction in managerial roles.

The Iceland Group is actively recruiting new store managers and area managers for both Iceland and The Food Warehouse in locations across the UK.

It expects to fill the 100 new senior positions during the next six months.

There are currently opportunities for more than 40 Iceland store managers.

Annual salaries start from PS28,000 (PS32,000 in London) and can rise to around PS40,000.

There are also managerial opportunities within the fast-expanding The Food Warehouse business.

In Wales, the investment will lead to six new managerial roles.

Ewan McMahon, Iceland Group operations director, said: "At a time when so many other food retailers are restructuring and downsizing their store management teams, we want people to know that we have some great opportunities for career progression at Iceland."

With its headquarters in Flintshire, Iceland is the biggest firm in Wales, with revenues in its last financial year of PS2.7bn.

It has a total workforce of more than 22,000, with more than 900 stores.
