Tesco has announced it will recruit 30,000 temporary workers during the festive period.
The grocer said half of those roles have been filled by temporary colleagues who joined Tesco during the pandemic and have had their contracts extended to cover Christmas.
The UK-wide roles, in Tesco’s Superstores and Extra stores, will include picking for online deliveries and store replenishment.
Angela Woolfenden, Tesco Head of UK Resourcing said: “We need another 15,000 colleagues to join the 15,000 additional colleagues who are already with us for the festive season.
“We’re looking for people who enjoy working as part of a team and are prepared to go that extra mile in order to help our customers.
She added: “With part time, temporary roles available across the UK, there are a variety of different shift patterns on offer, making sure these roles fit around different individual needs and lifestyles.”
