British supermarket giant Waitrose is planning to bring in an additional 5000 temporary workers for the holiday season. Enrollment of these fleeting staffs has already begun. The recruitment process is expected to last throughout November and December.
“As we approach our busiest time of the year, the creation of thousands of varied seasonal roles will help enable us to provide our famous high-quality service for busy Christmas shoppers,” said Waitrose personnel director Helen Hyde. Most of these staffs would be recruited from people who had worked for the supermarket chain in the past. Around half of the recruits would be new to the company. The positions will be full and part-time throughout the business including supermarkets, convenience stores and online.
