Liverpool City Region headquartered Shop Direct has announced it will create hundreds of new jobs after officially changing its name and identity to The Very Group.

The company recently rebranded to bring the group’s name and identity in line with its flagship consumer brand, Very.co.uk.

The move also supports a recruitment drive, over the next two years, for 150 roles in data and technology and hundreds more at the company’s new fulfilment centre, which will be operational this year and employ around 800 people during peak periods.

The expansion and rebrand will also celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Very.co.uk, which launched in 2009 as a leading pureplay digital retailer. Henry Birch, group CEO at The Very Group, said:

“This rebrand builds on over 100 years of history during which time we’ve gone from catalogues to bricks to clicks to mobile.

“We’ve always had a passion for reinvention and becoming The Very Group is another important part of our story.

“We want to be the number one destination for shoppers who value flexible ways to pay.

“We’ll achieve that by constantly improving what we do, innovating with data and technology at our core, and delivering the best experience for our customers and our colleagues.”

The Very Group has annual revenues of £2bn and over four million customers.
