Sainsbury's to recruit 15,000 Christmas staff

The temporory workers will carry out a number of key roles including customer service, working on the check-out, replenishing shelves and assisting the online delivery teams. 

Helen Webb, Sainsbury's retail human resources director, said: "We are looking for passionate, motivated individuals who love working as part of a team. Retail is a fantastic industry to work in and there really is no better time to be in store than at Christmas. Last year we had over 24 million customer transactions in Christmas week alone, so our seasonal colleagues are absolutely vital in ensuring that we provide our customers with great customer service right across the store.

"We know from experience that many of our seasonal colleagues use the opportunity as a springboard to a career at Sainsbury's. Last year 2,100 of our seasonal colleagues gained permanent roles at Sainsbury's and we hope that many of the colleagues from this year's intake will benefit in a similar way."

Sainsbury’s said that interested applicants could apply for the seasonal roles from this month onwards for employment starting in late November.
Candidates can find out more the roles at http://www.sainsburys.jobs/

Sainsbury's has over 930 stores across the UK and employs 150,000 people.
