Carphone Warehouse and Harvey Norman are to create 80 jobs as part of the roll-out of a retail partnership between the two companies.

The deal will see Carphone Warehouse outlets opening in all of Harvey Norman's 12 branches nationwide, with two opening this week and the remainder being set-up by November.

The roll-out follows a trial of the "store-in-store" partnership in Harvey Norman’s branch in Swords, Dublin.

Recruitment for managers and sales staff is under way.
