Sainsbury's creates 5,000 extra seasonal jobs
Tuesday 13 November 2012
Supermarket giant Sainsbury's is to create an extra 5,000 seasonal jobs to meet increased demand from customers over the busy Christmas and new year period.
The company announced in September it was creating 15,000 vacancies across its 1,000 stores, filling them in "record time".
Sainsbury's chief executive Justin King said: "This year we're recruiting an extra 20,000 people to ensure our customers get the best possible experience in store and online.
"It's a chance for people to experience the fast-paced, varied and rewarding world of retail - whether they are simply looking for a bit of extra cash or want to build their experience and take a step towards permanent work."
Customer service and colleague director Gwyn Burr said: "Seasonal colleagues carry out a number of key roles including customer service, working on check-outs, helping keep shelves full and assisting the online delivery teams as they prepare Christmas shopping orders.
"This is great experience to help people develop their career, many of our colleagues who started with us at Christmas are now in charge of large teams and budgets, helping to drive sales and deliver great service."
