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.

Want to get an email notification when jobs at IKEA St. Louis open up? Here's what you should do:

1. Create an account on Jobs.mo.gov, Missouri's work development site.

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.
