London,(PRNewswire) Job site reports a rise in the number of retail jobs posted online after sector shows positive signs of growth in January December is often adjudged the retail sector’s most lucrative month of the year, with retailers reporting high volumes of sales throughout the festive period. The January sales can too yield high returns, with consumers taking advantage of knock-off prices, yet sales often subside once this period has ended. Not this year. According to recent statistics published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), the retail sector has continued to show positive signs of growth since the busy Christmas period, with sales figures up 0.9% in January. The news is echoed by job site reed.co.uk who have recently reported that over 3,500 new retail jobs have so far been posted on their website since the New Year. reed.co.uk believes the surge in new job postings may be in reaction to the healthy sales figures seen by retailers, meaning more are now willing to create jobs and take on new staff to further bolster returns. Of course such positive news will be music to the ears of millions of jobseekers. According to reed.co.uk, over 96,600 job seekers applied for the 3,533 newly posted jobs aforementioned above, so competition remains rigorously tough. But which retail stores are showing the most likely signs to continue creating new retail job opportunities in the near future? From the ONS report, it seems retailers selling furniture and sporting goods performed particularly well throughout January, as shoppers were tempted by the steep discounts offered. However strong sales figures recorded by both non-store retailers (Internet websites) and food stores are said to be behind the industry’s sudden growth spurts. reed.co.uk therefore estimates that if this trend continues, plenty more job postings are likely to come from supermarket chains and ecommerce websites in the coming months, offering a potential wealth of retail and sales jobs.

Dubai, UAE The centerpiece of Downtown Dubai, Burj Khalifa was fully illuminated in shimmering white, red and green hues, drawing on the colours of the UAE national flag, through the fireworks display.

Mr. Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar Properties, said: “The New Year’s Celebrations 2012 is our tribute to the cosmopolitan spirit of Dubai.

Befitting its description as ‘The Centre of Now,’ Downtown Dubai was a sea of humanity with hundreds of thousands of visitors – both residents and tourists specially flying in for the celebrations. The celebrations flagged off with the music-dance performances of The Dubai Fountain. Several firework displays across Downtown Dubai added to the excitement. A countdown was beamed on big-size screens located across Downtown Dubai one minute ahead of the New Year. With ten seconds to go for 2012, for every second, a firework display was made from Burj Khalifa, followed by the grand finale fireworks spectacle which began from the top of the spire of Burj Khalifa at a height of 828 metres (2,716.5 ft), progressing downward to the base.

Following the fireworks, the celebrations shifted to Burj Park, with the live performance of Deep Forest, and solo violinist Diana Yukawa. Downtown Dubai’s attractions include At the Top, Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest observation deck with an outdoor terrace; The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination; The Dubai Fountain; world-class residences; commercial offices and the Emaar Boulevard, a 3.5 km boulevard lined with retail and F&B attractions.
