Middlesbrough-based designer department store Psyche has invested in a number of new employees to keep up with growing demand.
The store has seen a rapid increase in its online sales which has led to the need to grow its EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) team.
Helen Swales and Paul Jones will join the team as EPOS Supervisor and EPOS stock room assistant, using their ecommerce expertise to enable Psyche to sustain and further expand on its already increasing consumer demand.
Alongside the new EPOS recruits, Psyche has hired three new sales assistants for its menswear department – Luke McWhinney, James Poll, and Rachel Stephenson.
Steve Cochrane, owner of Psyche, said: “It is fantastic to find new talent to add to the Psyche team. All of the new recruits will be great additions to the business and enable Psyche to grow its online presence further and continue to provide high quality customer service.
“I strongly believe in investing in people and growing the Tees Valley economy through job creation and expanding the business here in Middlesbrough.”
Psyche offers an instore and online shopping experience with its hand-picked selection of well over 200 established brands and emerging designers includes the likes of Moncler, Dries Van Noten, Paul Smith, Aquascutum, Armani and many more.
Psyche has attracted many plaudits from the fashion industry and has won a string of awards along the way, including the much coveted Drapers Fashion Awards on two separate occasions, FHM magazine’s Retailer of the Year, GQ Magazine’s Best Menswear Shop and runner up to Harrods in Department Store of the Year 2012.
