Sainsbury’s Adding Almost 500 New North East Jobs Sainsbury’s, the third biggest supermarket in the United Kingdom, is set to add almost 500 new full and part time jobs in the North East in the coming months.

The announcement of the 470 North East jobs is part of a wider recruitment plan by Sainsbury’s to add a total of 6,000 new jobs all over the country in the next twelve months.

New stores at Sunderland and Sedgefield will create 350 new positions and an extension to a Sainsbury’s in Darlington will open up a further 100 jobs. More opportunities will also be created in Durham.

Sainsbury’s chief executive, Justin King, spoke about the masses of new full and part time jobs that the retailer is creating all over the UK:

“As one of Britain's biggest employers the range of jobs, training and skills we offer is growing with our business. We're creating thousands of opportunities each year across a variety of careers, from leaders of the future who want to run their own business area, to parents and students looking to work around other commitments,” said Mr King.

Sainsbury’s have said that lots of the new jobs in the North East will be part time roles, but that there will also be some new full time positions created at management level.
