An eagerly-anticipated department store is on the look-out to recruit more than 100 staff for its autumn launch.

Debenhams, which is set to open its new branch in Borehamwood Shopping Park this autumn, hopes to begin recruiting staff from the community the store will serve.

Victoria Hever has been appointed as the new store manager.

She said: “I can’t wait to show the people of Hertfordshire our fantastic new Debenhams store opening in Borehamwood.

“Opening the store will create more than 100 new jobs and I am passionate about supporting our local community with the careers we have to offer. We are also on the lookout for two enthusiastic recruits to take on trainee manager roles – a fantastic opportunity for those interested in developing their career in retail."
