Sainsbury’s to create 6,000 new jobs

sainsburysThe supermarket giant will be creating 6,000 jobs over the forthcoming year.

Sainsbury’s CEO Justin King told the first Sunemployment Roadshow in Newcastle that the supermarket chain is committed to supporting the economy’s growth and boosting skills by employing more people than ever before.

Sainsbury’s will also be creating over 400 new jobs in the North East over the next year.

King said that working for Sainsbury’s can offer flexibility, from working mums to part-time students, but can also be the route to establishing a varied career in a fast-paced, customer-facing environment.

Sainsbury’s currently recruits around 500 people every week in over 1,000 stores nationwide.

King comments: "As one of Britain's biggest employers the range of jobs, training and skills we offer is growing with our business. We're creating thousands of opportunities each year across a variety of careers, from leaders of the future who want to run their own business area, to parents and students looking to work around other commitments."
