Sports footwear company Columbia Sport Swear has been hiring in the US and UK for nearly a decade, and the company’s job market is growing fast.
The company is now hiring a full-time, high-demand workforce, including women, and has expanded its footprint in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, as well as expanding into the United States.
The firm’s chief executive officer and CEO, David A. Brown, told The New York Times that the company is currently hiring for about 1,500 jobs, including positions in sports apparel, shoes, accessories, and more.
In the United Kingdom, the firm is hiring more than 4,000 employees, according to the company.
In Australia, the company has about 4,500 employees, which is growing at a faster rate than its global competitors.
However, the number of jobs is shrinking as the number is decreasing.
“The growth in demand is so large in some parts of the world, that we’ve had to expand across different parts of our business,” Brown said in a company statement.
“So we’re still seeing some growth but we’re also seeing some slowdown, in terms of our full-year [Q1] results, which have been a lot slower than we would like.”
The company said it will continue to focus on attracting talented people to its global footprint, but it will also hire more than 3,000 people in the United Arab Emirates in 2017.
The UK’s Office for National Statistics reported in March that UK-born workers have a much higher unemployment rate than their non-British counterparts.
This is because people born in the UK are likely to have a higher proportion of those with qualifications from the UK, as they are more likely to attend university or work in the health and care sectors.
According to the Office for Work and Pensions, nearly a quarter of British born people between the ages of 18 and 34 have some sort of education, compared to less than 20 percent of non-UK born people.
