Lidl To Create A Further 1,000 Full & Part Time UK Jobs

Lidl has announced plans which will see the German supermarket chain create 1,000 full and part time jobs in the UK.

The new Lidl jobs will be created by five new London stores and what will be the company’s biggest distribution centre at Bedfordshire in the UK.

The massive new warehouse, to cover over 90,000 square feet in Luton, will serve new and existing stores in Greater London, generating hundreds of jobs for the region.

The Luton distribution centre will be double the size of any of Lidl’s existing warehouses and will be the German budget supermarket chain’s fourth facility in London alone.

The five new London stores are set to open in Hornchurch, Rosehill, Shepherds Bush, South Ruislip and Walthamstow Central over the next few weeks.

Chief Officer & Executive Board Member for Property Procurement Development at Lidl UK, Ingo Fischer, said: “As more London households choose to shop at Lidl we are committed to the continued investment in our operations and infrastructure to support our growth.”

“With five new stores opening in the next two months alone, and further store expansion and development plans in place for the Greater London area across the new financial year and beyond, this new warehouse is vital in supporting our ambitious expansion plans in and around the M25,” added Mr Fischer.

Lidl has now been trading in the UK for over two decades and, with the opening of the five new stores, is fast approaching the landmark of 700 British supermarkets. Lidl employs over 20,000 members of staff in full and part time roles in the UK. Worldwide, the company has over 200,000 employees working at more than 10,000 stores.

The news of the 1,000 new Lidl jobs follows one week after the Co-op supermarket chain announced 1,600 new UK jobs with the opening of 100 new stores across England, Scotland and Wales.
