Primark Salisbury store manager Christopher Carter said: “Our construction team has been busy getting the store ready over the last few months, and now it's time for the next step on our journey.

"We know that Salisbury shoppers have been eagerly awaiting the opening, so we can’t wait to welcome them to the store."

The store is seeking 100 new team members for roles including retail assistants, stockroom colleagues and visual merchandisers with start dates as early as August.

Pay rates for all roles start from £11.00 per hour, following an increase introduced for 26,000 retail assistants in April.

Colleagues also benefit from a 15 per cent discount on Primark products.
