Waitrose to recruit 5,000 temporary Christmas staff

New recruits will make up around 2,500 of these roles and they will be filled throughout October, November and December. The remaining roles will be filled by those who have worked for the retailer previously such as university students home for the Christmas holidays.

The full-time and part-time positions cover a variety of roles throughout the business, including Waitrose branches and little Waitrose convenience shops.

Helen Hyde, Waitrose personnel director, said: “We are committed to offering the best customer service during the festive season so we are happy to welcome people who wish to work in our fast-paced and friendly business. As we approach our busiest time of the year the creation of thousands of varied seasonal roles will help enable us to provide our famous high-quality service for busy Christmas shoppers.”
