Asda Creating 15,000 Christmas Jobs Across The UK In 2021

Supermarket chain Asda is creating 15,000 full and part time Christmas jobs across the UK this year.

Around 13,000 of the seasonal roles will be at Asda supermarkets throughout the country, whilst there will also be 1,500 home delivery jobs and a further 500 temporary vacancies at Asda’s depots in England, Scotland and Wales.

Although all of the 15,000 Christmas jobs at Asda are initially temporary positions, the grocery chain says that some roles could be made permanent in the New Year.

Announcing the hiring spree for the festive period, the chief people officer for Asda, Hayley Tatum, said:

“We will do all we can to make sure customers have a fantastic Christmas, and recruiting an extra 15,000 colleagues across our stores, depots and home delivery service will help us to provide them with great products and excellent service when they shop with us during the festive season.”

You can find out more about seasonal roles and careers at the supermarket chain by visiting the Asda jobs website.

Offering some info about the store roles in particular, the Asda jobs site says:

“There’s always something going on in store, right around the clock. Being ready for anything is an important part of being an Asda Store Colleague. Putting customers first, and always putting your best foot forward, are also essential.”

“Working in the heart of the community, understanding what people need is really important in store. We never forget how much our customers rely on us, and do everything they can to earn that trust.”

There is also some very useful information for students who are thinking of working for the company this year on our profile page for Asda supermarket.
