Catalogue shop Argos has launched its Christmas recruitment drive with dozens of jobs up for grabs.
Stores across Chester and Ellesmere Port are seeking staff to help them cope with the festive rush.
Argos said that while the jobs are recruited on short-term contracts, stores do look to turn these into permanent roles wherever possible.
Steve Carson, director of retail and customer operations at Argos, said: "The Christmas period is naturally an extremely busy and exciting time of year for Argos and our ability to offer more than 60,000 products for the whole family is why millions of people shop with us over the festive season.
"Job creation is one of the most important contributions we make to the communities in which we serve and we are committed to maintaining the friendly, personal service we are known for, whether customers are shopping in-store or buying online for home delivery.
"The work is fast-paced, varied and rewarding with the potential to learn a whole set of new skills.
"Many in the past have gone on to develop their career with us and progress rather rapidly to run a team, department or even store, helping to drive sales and deliver great customer service."
