Lidl to create 300 new jobs in Scotland

Lidl is to create 300 new jobs in Scotland over the next 18 months as it continues its expansion across the UK.

Most of the jobs will be in the retailer’s new stores in Paisley, Dumbarton, Giffnock and East Kilbride, as well as in its first Scottish ‘metropolitan’ store in Edinburgh. There will also be roles in operations, maintenance, logistics and office support at Lidl’s new regional distribution centre in Eurocentral, which will open in 2019. A further 250 jobs will be created at the warehouse as it gradually reaches full capacity.

Ross Millar, regional director for Scotland at Lidl UK, said: “We at Lidl are incredibly proud to be part of a business that is able to positively impact so many of our customers’ lives, through the availability and accessibility of quality fresh products, at market-leading value. This is only made possible through the hard work and dedication of our existing 2,200 workforce, and we’re therefore delighted to be in a position to create new jobs and welcome even more colleagues into the Lidl family.“

As part of the supermarket’s plans to modernise, Scotland will also see a programme of rebuilds, refurbishments and extensions across many of Lidl’s existing Scottish stores. Of those, Glasgow, Motherwell, Aberdeen and Ayr customers will be the first to benefit from bigger stores, new state-of-the-art facilities, and the creation of new local jobs.
