Tesco to recruit 50% less temporary Christmas staff than 2021
Tesco is recruiting 15,000 temporary Colleagues across the UK to help customers during the Christmas period, half of the number recruited in 2021.
The jobs will mainly involve working in Tesco’s Superstores and Extra stores for either early morning, day or evening shifts, so that prospective applicants can find an opportunity that fits around them.
Rachel Bushby, Tesco People Director said: “We know times are tough out there at the moment, so this is a good opportunity for anyone looking to boost their income over the festive period or who needs to find a stepping stone back into the world of work.
“The jobs have traditionally been popular with students looking to earn some extra money during the holidays as well as people who simply want to help their local community to enjoy a great Christmas.”
The new colleagues will help the supermarket meet high demand as customers look to make Christmas savings – especially as Tesco has just locked low prices on more than 1,000 products until 2023 – as well as helping shoppers get exclusive deals on Clubcard Prices at the checkout.
Once the seasonal period comes to an end, the retailer says there may be opportunities for Christmas colleagues to apply for any permanent roles.
