Morrisons Expansion to Create More than 7,000 New Jobs in 2012

UK supermarket group Morrisons will create more than 7,000 new jobs in 2012 as it continues its store expansion programme as well as developing its manufacturing and logistics arms. The company will be opening 25 new stores in 2012 as it seeks to ensure that more households have a Morrisons within easy reach. Currently there are more than six million households that do not have a Morrisons store within easy driving distance.

 

Many of the new opportunities will be craft skills jobs such as butchery, bakery and fishmongery. Morrisons also aims to be a catalyst for employment in a town by insisting that building suppliers also employ local people.

 

There will also be another 300 people employed at Morrisons’ new Bridgwater Regional Distribution Centre, which will provide food for much of the South West and South Wales. Morrisons is distinct from its main rivals in manufacturing much of its fresh food and aims to continue to develop this capability.
