Joint managing director Debbie Harrison, said: “Recruitment processes during the pandemic have certainly been different to normal. However, we recognised early on that to continue to tackle the challenges, and ultimately to grow the business, we needed to keep expanding our teams and the knowledge within them.

“We’ve focused on welcoming experts in specialist areas alongside a number of graduates – a combination we believe will bring fresh, new ideas and challenge current ways of working.”

Pricecheck’s latest recruits will help to strengthen the company, particularly in its IT team where investment in new technology has been a main focus. The employment of software developers, IT support and an IT project manager has taken the team to a growing number of 10, with more jobs still available.

The international wholesaler is pushing towards its £200m turnover target within the next five years and its ‘Vision 200’ strategy has kept the company moving forward throughout the pandemic after hitting the £100m turnover milestone in July last year.
