There are so many retailers hiring right now, why should I apply for a job with Primark?

That is a great question and one everyone should ask.

First, why would you not want to be part of something new and exciting? An average Primark store is filled with amazing fashion at amazing prices, with inventory that changes daily. Yes, we said daily.

Not only will you become an expert on fashion and merchandising, but you have the opportunity to grow with the company. We have a strong track record of promoting from within and are proud of our track record.

Not to mention, we pay competitive and we like to have fun with our work.

An example of our commitment to our employees is demonstrated by our “back of the house” or employee café. We have ensured that our employees have an environment that not only prepares them for work, but allows for them to have a restful break period in order to return to the busy sales floor. They are appointed with bright colors, super cool seating, Wi-Fi, a full set of kitchen appliances, lockers for personal belongings, and restrooms.

Can I relocate with the company?

Absolutely. Some of the best opportunities for growth come from either transferring to a larger volume store or through promotional opportunities in a different or new store.

Does Primark hire seasonal workers?

Absolutely. We have many opportunities for both full time and part-time hours for seasonal employees to help us through peak seasons with a set beginning and end date of employment. When these opportunities are available you will see the position posted.

Do you have a dress code?

For retail associates, we provide you with a Primark shirt and lanyard, and then you complete the Primark look with jeans or black pants. We encourage all of our employees to “fashion our fashion” as well. Further information is provided throughout the hiring process.

Where can I find out more information about Primark?

Primark has been around since 1969, with our first store opening in Dublin, Ireland. Therefore, there is a lot of information available to you beyond Follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for the most up to date fashion information, visit to see how our “fans” (what we call customers) fashion our fashion, or search us on #Primark, just to name a few.

What do I do if I’ve forgotten my password?

Just click the ‘Forgot your password?’ link at the bottom of the log in page. We’ll then send you an email where you can reset your password. Alternatively, if there isn’t an email address linked to your profile, you’ll be able to answer a previously determined security question to reset your password right then and there. Password resets can sometimes take up to 48 hours - and remember that our response might work its way to your Junk Mail folder.

Why doesn’t my log in work anymore?

For security reasons, your username and password are only active for 90 days. So if your log in isn’t recognised, chances are it’s been a few months since you first signed up. If that is the case, all you need to do is create a new log in.

Can I send you my CV/resume?

We’d love to read your CV, but seeing as we receive thousands of applications each week, it’s just not possible. That’s why we ask specific, structured questions and allow you to complete our simple assessment tools. That way we can easily identify if we want to invite you to the next stage of the selection process.

How do I continue an application I've already started?

First things first: log on to your profile using your username and password. You’ll then see a link to ‘unfinished job applications’ (assuming the closing date hasn’t passed). Then all you need to do is click on the ‘continue’ icon next to the job title and you’re good to go.

Can I update my profile information?

Any time you want. Just log in to your profile and click on ‘My Details’. You’ll then see all your info, which you can change and update as you like. This includes your username and password.

I’ve heard there’s a new store opening near to me, how do I apply for a job there?

Look out for details of new site openings on this website.

I work at Primark and want to apply for an internal vacancy. Should I do this online?

If you’re an existing employee and you’re looking for another role within Primark, head straight to our intranet. We have a dedicated search and apply tool just for you.

Do I need to bring anything with me to an interview?

For a specialty, supervisory, management or professional position then you should most certainly bring a resume/CV to your interview. For other opportunities including a Retail Assistant interview, then bringing a resume/CV is recommended but not required.

If unsuccessful, can I apply again?

If you see a different role and feel you have the skills, we would welcome your application. If it is the same role, we would ask you to carefully consider how your skills may have changed in the interim to better match the role.
