Tesco launches enormous recruitment drive for Christmas

Supermarket colossus Tesco has launched a recruitment drive for Christmas, with 11,000 vacancies available across the United Kingdom.

The grocer said positions are available in Superstores, Tesco Extra branches and at warehouses, with jobs to start immediately.

The positions came amid hundreds of thousands of redundancies as a result of the pandemic, with the roles likely to provide a lifeline to many people who’ve been forced out of work.

Tesco said it’s looking for checkout staff, shelf stackers and pickers for online deliveries.

The jobs will be in place until January and see you working up to 36 hours a week, but Tesco said that after the seasonal period ends, there will be opportunities for permanent jobs in stores.

Tesco People Director Rachel Bushby said that once the seasonal period comes to an end, Christmas colleagues will be encouraged to apply for any permanent positions available in their stores and that successful candidates will be invited for an interview in store.

Tesco is almost certainly not the only supermarket looking for a helping hand over the festive period.

Last year Sainsbury’s was looking for 11,500 extra staff, while there have always been new jobs up for grabs at the likes of Royal Mail, Next, Boots and more.

Sadly, this is not always the case, as many people apply to Tesco for employment and they don’t even get an interview or a response and it’s extremely unfair and disrespectful not to get a response and they will also lay off people after the New Year like they do every year.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
