30 new jobs thanks to Poundland security contract

Poundland stores across the North have created 30 new jobs thanks to a new contract with T3 security.

The Gosforth-based security firm struck a deal with the retailer to provide security staff in 30 stores across the northern half of the UK, seeing the company expand into Scotland and the North-West.

Peter Moore, who co-directs T3 Security with partner Richard Townsend, said: “This is a big contract for us, with a National retailer, and is testament to how much the business has grown.

“We’ve already had to employ 30 people to man the stores we’ve been contracted to manage, but there is the potential for more to be recruited if we’re awarded more stores.”

Peter and Richard have drafted in one of their most experienced members of staff, who has worked for 25 years in the field, to train the new members of staff.

Chief Executive of Poundworld Retail Group Chris Edwards commented: “The safety of our customers and staff is paramount, and we’re confident that T3 will be able to deliver the security we need to give our customers a great shopping experience in store, whilst keeping our staff safe.

“We’re also really pleased that the partnership has allowed the creation of 30 extra jobs.”
