Asda to recruit 15,000 workers for festive period

Asda is recruiting 15,000 temporary staff members ahead of the busy Christmas trading period.

The supermarket is hiring seasonal staff for a variety of tasks including serving customers, replenishing shelves, and picking, packing and delivering online orders.

Around 500 roles will be based in Asda’s depots while 1,500 will be for home delivery driver positions. The remainder will be store-based positions.

The supermarket said there will be opportunities for some of temporary workers to remain within the business into the New Year to cover permanent staff  who take holidays after the festive period.

Hayley Tatum, chief people officer at Asda, said: “We will do all we can to make sure customers have a fantastic Christmas and recruiting an extra 15,000 colleagues across our stores, depots and home delivery service will help us to provide them with great products and excellent service when they shop with us during the festive season.”

Asda has also confirmed that its Christmas home delivery slots will go live to Delivery Pass customers today and to all other customers on 28 October.

Since the start of the pandemic, Asda has more than doubled the capacity of its online delivery service and plans to have 900,000 home delivery and click & collect slots available the week before Christmas.
