Sainsbury's announces 10,000 new local jobs as it opens 500th convenience store

The supermarket has seen its convenience business grow by nearly 20% year-on-year with over half a million extra customers shopping in the stores since the start of the calendar year. 

Sainsbury's is planning to open one to two convenience stores a week, following the opening of 49 new stores in the first half of the year.

The news comes on the day that the supermarket 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."

Last week Sainsbury’s announced that it will recruit 20,000 temporary staff to meet demand from customers during the busy festive period.
