LONDON Dec 12 British online fashion retailer
ASOS said on Monday it planned to hire an additional
1,500 people over the next three years to work at its London
ASOS's new jobs in technology, marketing and retail follow
similar announcements from Facebook and Google,
which have also said in the last month that they plan to grow
their staff numbers in Britain.
The planned hires come despite warnings before the Brexit
referendum in June, that companies could seek to reduce their
presence in Britain as withdrawing from the EU would make it a
less attractive place to invest.
