Employees have a significant impact on how customers experience us and we therefore recognise the importance of investing in and looking after our people. We currently employ approximately 1,900 full-time equivalent people and actively promote the personal development and continuous improvement of our workforce, ensuring that everyone has the correct skills and knowledge to perform their role to the highest level. Our targeted training and development programme ‘Aspiring Leadership Development’ which will be available to all employees via a new online Learning Management System (LMS) will be launched in 2019.
Our UK employees are based at our Head Office and Distribution centre in Grange Moor, Wakefield and in our stores which are evenly distributed throughout the UK, typically in high street or shopping centre locations.
Bonmarché continually strive to be a great place to work and to support this we will be undertaking a colleague opinion survey in 2018/2019.
We offer a range of family friendly policies, including flexible working options and a holiday purchase scheme. We also offer a range of additional benefits such as discount for colleagues and free access to a confidential well-being helpline, provided by Retail Trust.
Bonmarché promotes diversity within our workforce and wholly supports equal opportunities in employment.
This year we published our first Gender Pay Gap report which showed that there is no median gender pay gap in Bonmarché.
