CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Charlotte-based Belk Inc. announced Friday that it will add approximately 150 employees to the corporate workforce over the next year, largely as a result of the company's investment in various growth initiatives.
The new jobs will be concentrated in IT and eCommerce as part of Belk's overall OmniChannel strategy and will support corporate operations. Belk currently employs more than 1,000 associates at its existing corporate office.
To secure top talent in these areas, Belk plans a phased approach to fill these management-level positions within IT, eCommerce and OmniChannel. As positions become available, they will be posted in the career section of Belk.com.
"This is the fastest growing part of our company," said Adam Orvos, executive vice president of human resources for Belk in a news release. "We're investing in the company, and hiring talent to build out these digital capabilities will be a cornerstone of this growth."
To accommodate this growth, the Company also announced it will lease approximately 50,000 square feet of space at the Coliseum Centre office complex adjacent to Belk's current headquarters facility in West Charlotte (pictured). Belk anticipates moving nearly 300 employees to the new facility, beginning in March 2013.
Another integral part of the retailer's ongoing commitment to eCommerce is the 515,000-square-foot eCommerce fulfillment center in Jonesville, S.C. which began operation in June of this year. This new facility represents a $4.5 million investment for Belk and is expected to create more than 120 new jobs in the Union County, S.C. area over the next five years.
