Online sector to hire new staff in 2016

Retail Shopping Street, New Jobs to be Created by Online Sector.

Thousands of new jobs could be created at small online businesses this year amid optimism in the sector, according to a report by eBay. The online giant's survey of 400 retailers found that one in eight expected to hire new staff in 2016 and a similar number believed they would start to export goods. Kit Glover, director of professional selling at eBay UK, said the findings were encouraging, adding: 'Despite a tough retail environment, the fact that digital small businesses are looking to expand their product offerings, export to more foreign markets and employ more people here in the UK can only be a good thing.'
