Retail Matters: Campaign Launch at Hammerson

29 Sep 2016

Retail Matters Week is a campaign to celebrate and showcase the great talents of those who work in retail and the careers and initiatives implemented by the retail property sector. It’s is organised by Revo in partnership with retail property companies and retailers.

The campaign launch took place at Hammerson offices in London on Wednesday 28th of September for an evening celebrating all the work our industry does to create jobs and great careers.

The night hosted ‘Shopping Centre Manager’ challenge, an inspiring and engaging quiz-type event on topical issues and themes in retail - featuring recent graduates, apprentices and junior professionals. there were four teams competing, Hammerson, Intu, JLL and Wembley Park LDO. 

Retail employs some 3 million people, and creates a positive impact by being the main employer in towns and cities, and helps maintain communities; employing the disadvantaged and marginalised, and those with physical or mental difficulties. However, the negative perception of working in retail is that it is a job that starts and ends on the shop floor. We know this isn’t true and working in retail provides a rich and rewarding career path.

Look out for updates from the fantastic work our centres and developments undertake to support the communities we work with during the campaign.
