Dixons Group has hooked up with the Government's Jobcentre Plus outfit to help the high street electrical retailer fill more than 1,000 new positions each year.

As part of the deal, Dixons Group - which includes Dixons, Currys, PC World and The Link - will consider applications from jobseekers via the Government agency. This includes those looking for jobs as part of the "New Deal" - the Government inititaive to get people off the dole and into work.

Anyone keen to work for Dixons can do so by walking into any Jobcentre, by phone or by using its website.

In June, Dixons Group announced it would recruit 1,000 more staff in the UK after increasing turnover and proft over the previous year. ®
