Leroy Merlin To Expand Its Workforce With 5,000 Jobs In Andalucía And Madrid.
Leroy Merlin, the French multinational that specialises in DIY, construction, decoration, and gardening, is preparing a job hiring campaign throughout Spain. Most of the positions will be concentrated in the Community of Madrid and Andalucía, with 1,500 and 700 vacancies respectively- the rest at other branches across Spain.

Although the list of companies continues to grow, the latest to announce their openings for summer positions was Leroy Merlin.
The company is looking for 5,000 employees for the summer period – some of them even with the possibility of obtaining a permanent position once the summer is over. The HR technician and coordinator of centers Leroy Merlin, Verónica Yagüe, confirmed it a few days ago and of them, there are already 1,968 offers available to register that are distributed by all its centers in Spain, with Madrid and Andalucía with the most vacancies, in terms offer number refers.
