Morrisons open 25 new stores

The UK’s fourth largest supermarket on Wednesday announced it will create more than 7,000 jobs next year as it continues its store expansion programme, as well as developing its manufacturing and logistics arms.

Morrisons said it will open 25 new stores in 2012, creating jobs in its butcher, baker and fishmonger stands.



More than half the new employees at one of the store will have been previously unemployed and 75 per cent are typically from the local area.

An additional 300 people will be employed at Morrison’s new Bridgwater Regional Distribution Centre, which will provide food for the South West and South Wales.

Group human resources director Norman Pickavance said: "Despite the difficult economic conditions, Morrisons continues to have ambitious growth plans and that means we will be searching for people to join us in the communities in which we operate.

"At a time when the number of young and long-term unemployed continues to increase we will provide opportunities for many people and help them build a career in retailing. That means we won't just be providing a job, we're committed to training our new colleagues so that they have the capability to move from the shop floor to the top floor."
