Turkish grocery delivery firm Getir has announced it is creating 4,000 new jobs as it doubles size in the UK this year.
The raft of employment opportunities follows the rise in working from home, with consumers now expecting instant delivery from everything from household items to grocery deliveries.
Currently the firm has 2,000 jobs available now, 1,600 for couriers and 400 for shop assistants, respectively. A further 2,000 will be available later in the year.
According to the grocery delivery company, by starting off as a freelance delivery driver, employees could have the opportunity to move into more supervisory and management positions.
“Having opened 120 stores in 2021, our aim is to more than double in size this year,” Getir’s regional general manager for Europe Turancan Salur told The Sun.
“We take pride in helping our colleagues build careers as we provide a range of opportunities to suit their needs.
“Whether this be supporting their family, fitting around university classes or training to reach management level, everybody enjoys the benefits of being employed with sick pay, holiday pay, maternity leave, pensions and other benefits.”
As a result, it plans to increase this number to 10,000 in a bid to “expand significantly” by the end of 2022.
