Swedish furniture giant Ikea has announced the opening of new stores and planning centres over the next two years, creating 1,500 jobs by 2025. The company already has more than 10,000 employees in Spain, 93% of whom have a permanent contract.

The offers will be published in stages over the next two years on the firm's website , where there are currently 19 job offers, most of them in Madrid and Catalonia.

Ikea employees have a base salary of 15,705.65 euros gross per month that will rise to 18,000 in four years, according to the agreement reached by the unions with the National Association of Large Distribution Companies (Anged), to which the Spanish subsidiary of the Swedish multinational belongs. This deal means the recognition of the new collective agreement for large stores, the largest in Spain as it affects some 260,000 workers and involves a wage increase of 17%.

Another of the agreements reached is the increase in salary concepts such as per diem expenses, a holiday allowance (up 29% to 450 euros) and remote working (up 40% to 35 euros). Likewise, with regard to the working day, the firm is to reduce the number of Sundays and public holidays worked, reducing the current percentages to 30%. As a result, this will be inline with the retail sector agreement where fewer Sundays and public holidays are worked in Spain.
