Tesco in jobs boost

Over 90 jobs have been created at a Tesco in east Belfast, now the supermarket giant’s biggest outlet in Northern Ireland. Tesco in Knocknagoney is also the latest in the province to become a ‘Tesco Extra’ store after being extended from 52,000 to 78,000 sq ft.

Gary Mills, director of Tesco in Northern Ireland, said: “Over the past six months, the development of three Extra stores in Northern Ireland at Carrickfergus, Newtownbreda and now Knocknagoney, has created around 275 new jobs at these stores.

“This consolidates our position as Northern Ireland’s largest private employer of local people.”
