100 New Merseyside Supermarket Jobs At Co-op

In a regional expansion, The Co-op is to create around 100 new supermarket jobs at various Merseyside locations over the next few months.

The supermarket chain’s most recent store in the area opened last Thursday in Mossley Hill at a cost of more than half a million. Other new stores will follow before the end of the year, creating dozens of new full and part time vacancies in Merseyside.

Most of the new jobs at The Co-op in the North West will be for customer team members, but there will be vacancies for team leaders and managers too.

Many of the vacancies will be part time jobs of 16 hours or less per week, making them ideal for any students who are living or studying in Liverpool and other parts of Merseyside.

Liverpool’s area manager for The Co-op, Oliver Gillespie, said he was delighted the chain was making such a significant investment in the Merseyside city.

“Our ambition is to establish the store as a community hub, for it to be a real asset in the community and make a positive difference to local life. The Co-op is a retailer with a history stretching back more than 150 years, and with stores in the heart of communities it is uniquely placed to meet changing consumer shopping habits,” said Mr Gillespie.

Matthew Speight, the managing director for The Co-op in North West, Wales and Central England, said: “The Co-op is moving forwards with a clear purpose to deliver a compelling, convenient and co-operative shopping experience.”

“Our acquisitions programme is fundamental to the success of this strategy, in the last two years we have opened close to 200 new stores UK-wide, and in 2016 the Co-op is actively pursuing 100 new stores across the country as well as carrying out major makeovers in a further 150,” added Mr Speight.
