Lidl Creating 1,200 New Full & Part Time Warehouse Jobs In Luton

German supermarket retail chain Lidl has announced plans to create around 1,200 new full and part time warehouse jobs in Luton.

The company is opening a massive new distribution hub in Luton and Lidl says the new vacancies will be filled before the end of 2025.

Recruitment is already underway for some positions at the Lidl RDC (Regional Distribution Centre) in Luton and a range of full and part time roles are on offer.

The facility will take up more than 1.2 million square feet, making it Lidl’s biggest RDC in the world once it is fully functional.

Roles up for grabs at the site include warehouse operative jobs, Human Resources positions, payroll staff and operations managers.

Announcing the new warehouse jobs in Luton, Ryan McDonnell, the chief executive officer for Lidl in the UK, said:

“This new distribution centre signifies our continued commitment to expansion across Great Britain and the creation of local jobs. At a time when many households are struggling, we are more focused than ever on giving more communities access to our unrivalled quality-value combination, whilst taking care of our own colleagues by paying them wages that are higher than the cost of living.”

“Our competitive pay and benefits are already helping to attract new colleagues, and we’re looking forward to welcoming 1,200 new people to our workforce soon.”

Mr McDonnell also addressed how the retail chain is reacting to the situation in Ukraine. The CEO added:

“We are shocked and saddened by the events unfolding in Ukraine. As an international business, we are donating €10million in funds, food, textiles and hygiene products in the neighbouring countries to Ukraine to get essential products as quickly as possible to those displaced by the crisis.”

“In addition to this we are keen to explore ways in which we can provide support here in Great Britain. We have thousands of live job vacancies and so we are in contact with the Government to understand how we can help individuals coming from Ukraine with employment opportunities,” added the chief executive officer.

The Luton Regional Distribution Centre will supply over 150 Lidl stores, mostly in London and surrounding regions, and you can find out more about the company’s jobs by visiting our profile for Lidl in the UK.
