Sainsbury’s begins recruitment drive

JOBSEEKERS wanting to work at the new Sainsburys superstore on Stainsacre Lane will be able to apply for one of almost 200 new jobs of yesterday 3 May.

The store is expected to open in August and will be accompanied by a petrol station after planning permission for the facility was given earlier this month.

Store manager Ian Wassall said: “I am delighted with the response that we’ve had so far and over 200 people have already registered to come and see us at the Jobcentre Plus on Thursday and Friday.

“We have scheduled a further open day on Saturday so that people who can’t come and see us during the week can still find out more information about applying for a job in the store.” The Sainsbury’s team will be available tomorrow between 9am and 5pm at the Green Lane Centre for a drop-in session.

Mr Wassall continued: “I would encourage anyone interested in becoming a Sainsbury’s colleague in the Whitby store to come along to the open day and find out about the roles available, as well as what makes Sainsbury’s a great place to work.”
