Jobs have been created at a shopping centre to cope with the extra demand in the run-up to Christmas.
Vacancies for temporary sales assistants and stockroom staff are available at stores including JD Sports, Poundworld, Card Factory and Bonmarche, at the Beacon Centre in North Shields.
Centre manager David Menzies said: “As we gear up for our busiest time of the year, we are pleased to be able to create more jobs for local people. Christmas is an exciting time in retail and our stores are all actively preparing for this as we are expecting a high volume of people in the centre.”
There are currently 13 vacancies available and those interested in temporary positions at the centre should send a CV to retailers directly.
The Beacon will be operating extended opening hours during Christmas.
It will be open on Boxing Day. Free parking will be available at the centre during December.
