Wednesday 21 November 2012
Supermarket giant Sainsbury's is to create 10,000 jobs over the next three years as it continues to open new stores.
The new roles will be in the firm's smaller convenience and Local stores, which have seen a big increase in business this year.
The news was announced as Sainsbury's opened its 500th convenience store in Southsea, Hampshire.
Simon Twigger, Sainsbury's director of convenience, said: "Opening our 500th store is a real milestone in our plans to create a scale convenience business. The business is going from strength to strength.
"The jobs announced today will range from managerial and team leader roles to customer service.
"Work in our convenience business is particularly fast-paced and flexible, with great opportunities for progression. It's one of the best possible starts to a career in retail and many of our convenience store managers have worked their way up into the role."
