Very to create hundreds of new jobs following re-brand

Published on: 14th January 2020

The Very Group is supporting a recruitment drive over the next two years. 

Shop Direct has officially been rebranded as The Very Group and has outlined plans for hundreds of jobs. The new corporate identity is designed to build on the history and success of the company, and reflects the next phase of its ongoing transformation.

The Very Group will now support a recruitment drive over the next two years for 150 roles in data and technology, and hundreds more at its new fulfilment centre in the East Midlands, which will employ about 800 staff during peak periods.

Henry Birch, group chief executive at The Very Group, said: “This rebrand builds on over 100 years of history during which time we’ve gone from catalogues to bricks to clicks to mobile. We’ve always had a passion for reinvention and becoming The Very Group is another important part of our story.”
