How's your Swedish? Are you any good with an Allen wrench? Do you love meatballs? We have a job opportunity for you.

As IKEA builds its highly anticipated, 380,000-square-foot store in midtown St. Louis, the furniture retailer announced that it's beginning to recruit staff for about 300 jobs.

IKEA has only opened two senior management positions so far -- a site human resources manager and an operations manager -- but recruitment for other management jobs will start in fall 2014. IKEA expects to begin hiring next spring, probably in April or May, for non-management positions, including part-time work, in sales, customer service, food service, interior design, security and other departments.

2. Send a resume to IKEAslate@stlworks.com with the word IKEA in the subject line. That will connect you to the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment, the local agency assisting IKEA with hiring here.
