Asda announces recruitment drive ahead of Christmas

Asda has announced plans to hire an additional 15,000 workers over the festive season.

The roles will be across stores, depots and in delivery. This week will also see the first Christmas delivery slots up for grabs, with the first available on Tuesday for Delivery Pass customers.

“We will do all we can to make sure customers have a fantastic Christmas and recruiting an extra 15,000 colleagues across our stores, depots and home delivery service will help us to provide them with great products and excellent service when they shop with us during the festive season,” said Hayley Tatum, chief people officer of the group.

Sainsbury’s is also taking part in a big hiring drive ahead of Christmas. The supermarket said it would hire 22,000 members of staff.

“The Government is protecting, supporting and creating jobs across the UK through our plan for jobs and it’s great to see Sainsbury’s launching its biggest ever Christmas recruitment drive,” said Business minister Paul Scully.

“These 22,000 jobs being created across the country mean more opportunities for workers and even better service for customers – enough to give Father Christmas some serious competition.”
