Tesco is looking to recruit 30,000 workers to join the ranks over the busy festive period.

The supermarket giant is taking on staff on a temporary basis and is hoping to fill the roles with students, families looking for extra cash to cover rising bills and workers wanting to get back into employment.

It is offering roles in its Superstores and Tesco Extra shops mostly with a wide range of shift times available during the day, early morning, and evening.

Promisingly for potential employees, once the festive season comes to an end the retailer said there could be opportunities to make the temporary role a full-time position.

This huge recruitment drive comes in a week where budget chain Aldi also revealed it is looking to hire thousands of permanent and temporary staff for the upcoming festive period.

Fantastic festive roles

James Goodman, Tesco people director said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to boost their earnings over the festive period or who needs to find a route back into the workplace.

“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.

“Our festive roles are a fantastic way to become part of the Tesco team, with roles working on checkouts to picking orders for home delivery or replenishing the store. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet great people, learn new skills and be part of a diverse team where everyone is welcome.

“We had a great response for festive roles last year and we would love to hear from anyone who worked with us then. 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.”
