IKEA Is Opening A Store On Roblox

IKEA The Coworker Roblox

Launching June 24th ‘The Co-Worker Game’ will allow players to experience working in IKEA’s virtual universe. Fans will be able to live their home furnishing dreams and get paid for it, with a limited number of paid roles available. Applications for paid roles in ‘The Co-worker Game’ are open from today until Sunday, 16th June.

IKEA has unveiled a first look at ‘The Co-Worker Game’, a virtual universe coming to Roblox on June 24th. The immersive experience gives players the opportunity to experience IKEA's unique approach to careers where non-linear career journeys are the norm and lateral moves across departments are commonplace.

As well as being the brand’s first foray into mainstream gaming, the virtual store will give people a chance to immerse themselves in the working world of IKEA. With a limited number of paid, virtual co-worker roles available in the game.  

Applications for roles in the virtual store open today (3rd June, 2024) and close on Sunday 16th June, with paid shifts for 10 new co-workers up for grabs. Successful applicants will be able to flex their skills, help customers, and get promoted to move departments, just like in the real world.   

Alongside the paid co-workers, the broader Roblox community, gamers and IKEA fans alike will be able to work, explore and experience the virtual world of IKEA on Roblox. They can venture to IKEA’s famous Swedish Food Market and Bistro and serve up endless amounts of meatballs or stop over at the various showrooms and use famous IKEA products to organise the space – say hello to HEMNES heaven. All with the chance to win exclusive IKEA UGCs.

“We’re excited to be the first brand to launch paid work on Roblox to showcase how we do careers differently, bringing our unique careers philosophy to life. At IKEA, there is no set route to career progression. Our co-workers are able to change roles, switch departments, and grow in any direction they choose, both in the game or in the real world. There are many ways to learn and grow at IKEA, and that's what IKEA on Roblox is all about.” 

Virtual interviews for shortlisted applicants will take place for this fully remote virtual role between Thursday, 14th and Tuesday, 18th June 2024. Each successful applicant will be paid an hourly IKEA Co-Worker rate for their time on the game.  

IKEA on Roblox, developed by The Gang, a Swedish game design company, launches on June 24th.
