Cosmetics firm doubles sales forceOct 30, 2012
The Milton Keynes-based company has welcomed 800 new recruits in the last three months alone.
Chief executive Eric McClenaghan (pictured) said that flexible work options are continuing to provide an important outlet for both employers and jobseekers.
He said: “Last week’s Office of National Statistics figures show that the number of people in part-time work rose by 134,000 to 8.12 million, the highest level since 1992, when these numbers began to be collected. These figures fit with Oriflame’s own sales force data which has shown a marked acceleration over recent months.
“People are turning to part-time roles like direct selling as an alternative income source thanks to the flexibility it offers and the low start-up costs.”
Oriflame is one of the UK’s fastest growing beauty companies selling skincare and cosmetic products. It has seen annual growth of 25% for the past four years.
Mr McClenaghan said: “Going forward, we are confident in our ambitions to strengthen the income opportunity for our Oriflame consultants through innovation and brand building thereby securing a long-term sales force increase.”
