Bensons for Beds has launched a recruitment drive at its northern logistics and distribution centre to meet increased demand after beginning a significant transformation programme following refinancing in June. 

The bed specialist has created 37 new jobs at its site in Huncoat, Lancashire, to work as warehouse operatives and delivery drivers. So far, it has filled 26 posts and is seeking to fill another 11 vacancies for drivers based at Huncoat, near the group’s head office in Accrington. 

Bensons emerged as a standalone business in June following a restructuring deal that injected £25m of investment into the business. 

COO Joe Wykes says: “Sales are running ahead of our expectations as we emerge from refinancing as a refocused and resilient business. That’s why we’re looking for additional colleagues at Huncoat to help us deliver, literally, to customers.”
