A SECURITY and cleaning staff drive is set to bring a jobs boost close to Glasgow.

Braehead Centre announced it will be holding two special events for those interested in working at the site on September 20 and 22.

The first event will be held from 5pm to 8pm while the second will take place between 1pm and 4m.

Staff already employed at Braehead yesterday told how much they enjoy working at the mall and encouraged people who are looking for a job, or fancy a career change to apply for one of almost a dozen positions currently available.

Almost six years ago, Louise Reynolds was a hairdresser, but wanted a change of career. She got a job as a security officer at Braehead and since then has been put through various training courses and promoted to security co-ordinator.

She said: “Working at Braehead is more than just a job – it’s like we’re all a family here.

“If you want to improve yourself and move up the career ladder, the company will invest in you with all kinds of training.”

Braehead’s security and environmental manager, Paul-Scott Wiggins said: “The aim of our recruitment events is to allow people to drop in and discuss the roles, duties and benefits with the centre’s team leaders in a more casual setting as opposed to a formal interview.
