Sainsbury's takes on 600 Christmas workers
Supermarket chain Sainsbury's is creating 600 Christmas jobs at 13 stores across Northern Ireland.
The retailer will be taking on 15,000 seasonal staff across the UK and is hoping to make at least 2,000 people permanent.
Workers will carry out a number of roles. These will include customer service, check-out duties, helping keep shelves fully stocked and assisting the online delivery teams as they prepare shopping orders for Christmas.
Interested parties can make their application now for employment starting in late November.
After completing a straightforward online test, successful candidates will be invited to a short in-store assessment and an interview with a Sainsbury's manager.
Customer service and colleague director Gwyn Burr said: "Job creation is one of the most important contributions we make to the communities in which we serve, so this year we're happy to announce we've created 15,000 seasonal jobs.
"Christmas is the busiest time of year in our stores, so the work is fast-paced, varied and rewarding."
Ms Burr also spoke of the scope for development in the company.
"The number of permanent jobs created following the Christmas season is testament to the fact that Sainsbury's is a great place to work, with many opportunities on offer and the potential to learn a whole set of new skills," she said.
