Aldi is set to hire over 1500 temporary workers to help meet higher demand over the festive period.
The discount retailer is recruiting people to support its permanent staff as it gears up for its “biggest ever Christmas.”
The new recruits will be working on the checkouts, replenishing stock as well as picking and packing orders for its click and collect service.
The temporary Christmas jobs are in addition to the 2000 permanent roles Aldi wants to fill by the end of the year.
“We always need extra support over the busy Christmas period but this year especially, temporary store colleagues will play a vital role in keeping our shelves stocked as the nation prepares to reunite with their loved ones after missing out on festive celebrations in 2020.”
Aldi UK recruitment director Kelly Stokes said: “At the same time, we also want to recognise and thank our amazing colleagues who have been going above and beyond to serve local communities over the past year.
“This is why we will once again be keeping our stores closed on Boxing Day, and it’s been really encouraging to see other retailers committing to do the same this year.”
