Tesco creates 1,000 jobs in one day

Three regeneration partnership stores opened in Woolwich, Hednesford in Staffordshire and Trafford in Greater Manchester, creating more than 990 new roles between them. The supermarket also launched a new Express store in the Cobalt Business Park near Newcastle, taking the total number of new recruits to over 1,000.

A third of the new jobs at the regeneration stores have been offered to local people who have been out of work for more than six months, thereby helping to tackle long term unemployment in the areas.

Judith Nelson, UK personnel director for Tesco, said: "We’re really proud to be creating 1,000 brand new jobs in one day.

"Given how close we are to Christmas, I’m particularly proud to be welcoming so many new colleagues who have previously been out of work for a long time.  These are permanent roles offering security, good rates of pay and generous benefits, along with the chance to get on and build a great career at Tesco."

Earlier this year, Tesco committed to creating 20,000 new jobs in the UK in 2012 and 2013 as its looks to boost staff numbers and improve customer service under its £1 billion investment plan in UK stores.
