Kesko and Oriola’s joint venture starts recruiting store personnel

The first approximately 15 stores of the new chain specialising in health, beauty and wellbeing will be opened in the autumn 2017 in the capital area, Turku, Tampere, Kuopio and Oulu. The chain is now recruiting almost 100 wellbeing experts. The new chain is estimated to create up to 1,000 new jobs in Finland.

Kesko and Oriola’s new chain of health, beauty and wellbeing stores will open its first stores in the autumn. The stores will be situated in the capital area, Turku, Tampere, Kuopio and Oulu. A recruitment of approximately 100 wellbeing experts for the stores opening in the autumn has begun.  

“First class service is the core of our new chain. We are looking for employees who truly care about the wellbeing of our clients. We are recruiting wellbeing professionals with different expertise, from a pharmacists to personal trainers and beauty experts. We are building a totally new concept, and are therefore looking for experts in health, beauty, nutrition and sports,” explains Katja Lee, Human Resources Director of the new chain.

The new chain's name, the location of the first stores and more details on their concept will be announced in September.
