Prezzo

Are you ready to earn some dough? Try Prezzo. 

Prezzo is one of the UK and Ireland’s largest Italian food-based restaurant chains. The first restaurant opened on Oxford Street, London, in November 2000. Today it employs over 3,300 people in front of house roles like bar staff and waiters and waitresses, and back of house roles such as chefs and sous chefs. 

To bring character to their restaurants, Prezzo tends to pick old buildings of architectural value (like banks and cinemas) to convert into restaurants. Looking for another fun fact? Prezzo translates to ‘price’ in Italian.

B&M Retail

OK, so you may know that B&M stands for Bargain Madness (and you can certainly find some real bargains in its stores). However, originally B&M was called Billington & Mayman, after Malcolm Billington, the man who started the business. Which we admit, is a little less  catchy. 

The first B&M store was opened in Blackpool in 1978. Today there are over 680 stores spread across the UK employing over 35,000 people. B&M classes itself as a variety retailer because of the range of branded and own-brand products it sells at reasonable prices. Its product range includes food and drink, stationary, haircare and beauty and home and garden furnishings and more. 

So, if you want to start a career in retail or if you’re looking to step your retail career, B&M could be the place to do it. 

Roles in demand:

Three things you might not know about B&M:

  • Around 2.7 million customer transactions are completed each week at B&M
  • Its website attracts over a million visitors a month – even though you can’t actually buy from it!
  • One of their best selling products is wallpaper (now you know)

Location: Throughout the UK
