More Christmas jobs for Sainsbury's
Around 15,000 workers are to be taken on by Sainsbury's for this year's Christmas season

Sainsbury's is to recruit 15,000 workers for the Christmas season, 1,000 more than the same time last year, the supermarket giant announced.

The company said the jobs, including customer service, check-out and deliveries, will give a "real boost" to communities across the country.

Last year, around 2,100 seasonal workers gained permanent jobs at Sainsbury's, a trend which is expected to be repeated.

Helen Webb, Sainsbury's retail human resources director, said: "We are looking for passionate, motivated individuals who love working as part of a team. Retail is a fantastic industry to work in and there really is no better time to be in store than at Christmas.

"Last year we had over 24 million customer transactions in Christmas week alone, so our seasonal colleagues are absolutely vital in ensuring that we provide our customers with great customer service right across the store.

"We know from experience that many of our seasonal colleagues use the opportunity as a springboard to a career at Sainsbury's."

Sainsbury's has more than 930 stores across the UK, employing 150,000 staff.
