Hot on the heels of opening its store in Cheras just a couple of months ago, IKEA Malaysia has announced that it will open its new store in Johor Bahru.

Located near Jalan Desa Tebrau, Johor Bahru, this will be the 1st store in the southern region of Malaysia.


In line with this, IKEA is embarking on the 1st phase of recruitment for over 50 positions, including those for the store’s management team. Openings include positions for the Store Manager as well as managers and assistant managers for Sales, Communication and Interior Design, Human Resource, Sustainability, Restaurant, Logistics Department, and more.


“This store is part of our overall ambition to expand in Southeast Asia and commitment to provide more Malaysians with affordable, functional and well-designed Swedish home furnishings. As we prepare its development, we invite Malaysians to join our team to pioneer the setup of our new store,” said Mike King, Retail Director, IKEA Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

IKEA offers a competitive package of rewards including an incentive plan, medical benefits, employee discounts, and opportunities to learn and develop.

“We believe that growing our business and people goes hand-in-hand. We want to work with down-to-earth and straightforward individuals who share the same passion towards creating a better everyday life for the many people,” Mike added.
