Job TitleSales Director - Promotions - INTU Plc

Capital Shopping Centres is the UK’s largest shopping centre owner (operator) and since the acquisition of The Trafford Centre on 26th January 2011 it now owns 15 UK regional shopping centres including 11 of the UK’s top 30.  Total assets amount to 16 million square ft of space equating to £6 billion value. 

The CSC shopping centre portfolio is clearly an enviable one with over 320 million customer visits and 30 million unique visitors to the centres each year. The next stage of growth will focus on building a distinctive and leading brand identity with the “customer experience” at its core. A new strategic initiative is shortly to be launched following an internal and external announcement on 15th January 2013 to create a new centre based national brand “intu” to replace CSC. The launch will be supported by a £25 million investment to fund new centre based technology infrastructure, branding & communication, “world class service” training for 1800 staff and a massive experiential focus to deliver joy, pleasure and delight through customer interaction at every touch point.
