Sainsbury’s adds 18,000 Christmas jobs in hiring spree

Sainsbury’s has announced it is looking to recruit 18,000 temporary workers to support the supermarket through the festive season.

The hiring spree includes 15,000 roles at Sainsbury’s, 2,000 at Argos and 1,000 in logistics.

Temporary staff will work up until 7 January 2023 with roles including fixed term contracts of between three and 12 weeks.

It comes as supermarkets are battling for market share this Christmas as cash-strapped consumers are cutting back on non essential items and planning low-key festive celebrations at home.

The supermarket had hiked its base rate, as well as offering staff a discount and free food during shifts, Angie Risley, group HR director at the supermarket said.

“We know how tough it is for households right now and as well as excellent value for customers we are committed to leading colleague pay,” she added.
