Our AGM 6pm on Wednesday here at the post office will discuss fallout from IKEA store recruitment

IKEA's new Sheffield superstore opened to great fanfare last week. In an article in The Sheffield Star on 10 August we were told that "most" of the 480 staff "have been recruited from within the city region, and particularly Tinsley and Darnall."

However, a City Council report revealed that only 6.2% of the jobs have actually gone to people in the whole of the S9 postcode area, which is quite a bit larger than Tinsley and Darnall. That's a total of 30 jobs out of 480.

How do you feel about this? Did you apply for a job with IKEA, or do you know somebody who did? What was your experience? Does 30 jobs for the whole postcode area seem to you like 'jobs have gone particularly to people in Darnall and Tinsley?'

Come to our AGM to share your views and find out about the exciting community work we are doing and what is happening about Darnall Post Office. The meeting is at 6pm on Wednesday here at our offices next-door to the post office.
