Additional Information

Ikea, the global retailer of ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories, is opening a store in Ljubljana and plans to hire about 300 workers in Autumn 2020. New jobs are available in areas of sales, logistics, public relations, public support, food and restaurants. Candidates have to apply by the end of September. The company announced the completion of the hiring process in October. It is not yet known when the store will be opened, probably in Spring 2021.
