Maybe try approaching the company directly and not the news website. Suggest using a search engine i.e. Google and maybe "googling" "Pound World Head office" which returns the postage address and telephone number.
They may have an online application form process but most likely you will have to provide a CV - Maybe draft a copy of your CV in advance - don't say "you don't have anything to put on your CV, a 1 page summary is better than nothing, academic skills are transferable, keep it short keep it relevant and make it bespoke - dont use terms like "I like reading and going out" - NEWSFLASH I read the shampoo bottle and stand outside often - employers dont care!
Most likely they will ask you to present at the store when it opens/as it prepares to open - suggest you arrive looking presentable i.e. not chewing gum with your headphones swinging from your shirt collar and ready to answer standard questions like "why do you want to work here" and "why should I hire you" - think about a suitable answer before you get there - i.e. dont say "If i dont get a job the jobcentre will stop paying me benefits" or "my parents are going to kick me out if I dont contribute" - say something apporpiate like "I think this job will give me opportunities to develop my skills further" and most importantly be honest.

And because I am awesome, they are advertising on job search engine indeed and total jobs (it appears I cannot paste the Link) however you are welcome :)

So pleased as I like to look round the £1 shops. I don't go to Town much but go on retail park & the beauty of it there's no parking charges. I will definitely be buying from Poundworld.

I'd knew there would be that one person that moans about this even before I scrolled down. Its an extra 30 jobs whether they are part time or full time, its at least something for Barnsley and what it needs. Boost in employment. May not be a great retail chain but is something!

Well! You certainly gave Emma something to think about, Mr Reality Check. Not sure if it was written tongue-in-cheek, but it certainly made for a good read. Hope she gets a job following your advice.

Im back!

Nothing new here I see. Barnsley still getting cheap shops for all the scruffs. How's Steveo these days and my pal Richard?
