Three,Ireland’s largest high speed network, is gearing up for the festive season. The mobile giant has taken on over forty additional retail staff to cater for what is expected to be the busiest Christmas ever.

Interviews for the nationwide positions were held in Three’s Head offices in Clarendon Row.  Of the 834 people who applied, 41 were recruited to help the company meet demand over a total of six weeks this Christmas.

The launch of a number of new mobile devices this year, including the Samsung Galaxy SIII, iPhone 5 as well as new “super” phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note II and HTC’s Windows Phone 8 coupled with Three’s extended ‘All You Can Eat’ data offering is expected to add to the demand in shops this season.

Three became the only network to offer ‘All You Can Eat’ data, earlier this year, giving unlimited internet usage with no excess data charges for prepay, pay monthly and Flexifix customers. The popular offer, which was extended into 2013, means customers can surf the net as much as they like without worrying about racking up a huge data bill.

Simon Jones, Head of Sales at Three said: “The introduction of our ‘All You Can Eat’ data offer earlier this year has only added to the unprecedented growth we’ve seen in sales. The offer is the perfect complement for smartphones like the SIII, iPhone and many more, allowing our customers to maximise some of their impressive features. This Christmas we’re making sure we have all the necessary staff in place to help our customers find their perfect phone or price plan with Three.”
