Tesco hires extra 15,000 staff for the festive period

Supermarket giant Tesco has hired an additional 15,000 staff members to work over the festive period.

The majority will start in stores across the UK from the start of this month and will work across a range of departments.

Tony Hoggett, UK chief operating officer at Tesco, said: “Our colleagues are already doing a wonderful job getting ready for the festive season and with our additional Festive Colleagues joining them in store, we’re ready to help our customers every step of the way this Christmas.”

Nearly 60,000 people were interviewed for the Christmas roles this year.

The supermarket said thousands of Tesco office staff will also work in Tesco stores over the busy period as part of its Feet on the Floor programme.

Tesco head office employees are set to work the equivalent of 10,000 days in stores over the next six weeks.
