Sir Philip Green to offer 1,000 BHS staff jobs at Arcadia retail empire

Sir Philip Green is to offer 1,000 BHS staff jobs at his Arcadia retail empire.

The workers are currently employed at Arcadia concessions, such as Dorothy Perkins and Wallis, within BHS outlets.

It is understood that the Topshop billionaire has also instructed his lieutenants to assist some of the 10,000 remaining BHS workers find new jobs.

During a parliamentary hearing last week, Sir Philip apologised to the staff of the collapsed retailer and admitted that he sold the business to the "wrong guy", adding that he will "sort" the firm's pension scheme.

The 163-store chain is in the process of being wound down by administrator Duff & Phelps.
