EG Group To Create Over 22,000 New Jobs & Apprenticeships In The UK

The EG Group, the petrol stations and fast food outlet specialist, is creating over 22,000 new jobs and apprenticeships in the UK.

The Group, owned by Mohsin and Zuber Issa who also own supermarket chain Asda, is on a massive worldwide hiring spree which will see the company fill a further 9,000 to 10,000 vacancies globally.

New jobs will be created in countries including Ireland, the Netherlands, Australia and the United States.

The company currently provides jobs for just over 54,000 people worldwide, so the new recruitment drive will see the Group increase its overall headcount by more almost 60 per cent before the end of 2027.

In the UK, the EG Group is expanding its LEON food outlet chain and its bakery brand Cooplands in a move which will create around 22,700 full and part time positions.

The UK jobs and apprenticeships are to be filled over the course of the next five years and vacancies will also be advertised at EG Group’s head offices in Blackburn.

The company currently employs around 200 apprentices in the United Kingdom but is looking to more than double its intake of apprentices to around 500 before the end of 2025.

Announcing the plans, the co-founding brothers of the Group, Mohsin and Zuber Issa, said: "As EG continues to go from strength to strength, we will be creating a large number of new jobs over the coming years, particularly in our successful foodservice business, which remains a significant growth opportunity globally.”

“We are proud to be a business founded in Britain that invests in job creation worldwide while focusing heavily on the training and development of colleagues. EG has a strong track record of providing colleagues with long-term opportunities to progress their career at all levels and we are passionate about continuing this,” added the brothers.
