Screwfix to create 900 new jobs in 2015

More than 900 jobs are being created by hardware and DIY retailer Screwfix, it was revealed as Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne visited the West Midlands.

Screwfix CEO Andrew Livingston announced plans to open a further 50 stores next year, which will create 900 new jobs.

Mr Osborne is touring British businesses as they announce measures to create jobs, help people into work, increase exports or make the UK a leader in science and innovation.

Osborne's visit formed part of the second leg of his Great British Brands tour. Andrew Livingston said "At Screwfix we have seen increasing optimism among our trade customers for some time now, which not only represents potential growth across the industry, but also increasing employment opportunities in all sectors, which is great news for the economy as a whole."

George Osborne said "Backing businesses who are expanding is a key part of our long-term economic plan which is why I have cut corporation tax, introduced the employment allowance, and abolished national insurance contributions fr the under 21's. These changes are helping businesses like Screwfix create jobs and the economic security that comes with that.

The company recently opened its 360th store and employs more than 6,000 workers.
