Poolwerx recruits for 100 job vacancies as brand continues to grow

Poolwerx is leading the charge for new staff as the pool care business records its most successful year of trading.

The network is on a recruitment drive for more than 100 roles to meet demand following a double digit percentage sales uplift year on year, and a lift of 10 per cent on forecast turnover.

And despite the pandemic Poolwerx has opened four retail stores in the last six months, with a further six outlets in the pipeline to open within the next six months.

Nic Brill, Poolwerx’ chief operating officer, said the jobs drive will help resource the network’s growing footprint.

“We’re recruiting women and men from around the country for a range of roles from part-time and casual roles to full-time opportunities.”

Recruitment is for regional and metro locations with roles available for store managers, retail staff, pool technicians and administrative staff.

It’s been a busy year for the Aussie pool care business which has brought experienced franchising executive Tracy Steinwand, with substantial Subway experience, on to the board, and seen a commitment to innovation and technology with the appointment of a chief technology officer and a head of innovation.

Founder John O’Brien said of the senior executive appointments, “Since our inception, a key part of our ongoing growth is to constantly evolve and develop new innovations and initiatives. This ensures we stay ahead of our competitors.”

The focus on spending up on home improvements through lockdown has been a boon for franchisees.

According to the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) the demand for new pools has jumped 30 per cent year on year. This brings with it increased demand for maintenance services and products.
