Tesco To Till Up 9,000 Christmas Jobs For 2019

Supermarket chain Tesco has said it will be creating 9,000 Christmas jobs across its stores and distribution centres in 2019.

Recruitment for the seasonal jobs at Tesco got underway yesterday (7th October) and the retailer is looking for temporary staff to join their ranks from December, through into January.

A range of shifts are available, with up to 36 hours per week on offer, and Tesco says that some of the temps could land permanent positions within the company after the hectic Christmas and New Year period is out of the way.

The job description for the seasonal vacancies on the Tesco website reads:

“Christmas is a magical time of year at Tesco and it's also one of our busiest. We are looking for Festive Colleagues who are passionate about service and want to help us give our customers the best Christmas ever.”

“The most important role you will play as a festive colleague this Christmas is giving amazing service to all of our customers. You'll get the chance to work with the store team to make sure our customers get everything they need this Christmas. No two days are the same, and it's a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people along the way and have fun.”

Announcing the seasonal recruitment drive, people director at Tesco, Rachel Bushby, said: “Christmas is a special time of year at Tesco and it’s also one of our busiest. We’re looking for colleagues who will give great customer service and who enjoy working as part of a team that really goes the extra mile for customers.”
