Sainsbury's creates graduate jobs in Northern Ireland
Thursday, 07 May 2009
Supermarket chain Sainsbury's has announced that it will create 100 new positions for those seeking retail jobs, including graduates, in Northern Ireland.
The firm's Andersonstown branch near west Belfast will be its largest in the area when it opens at the end of summer and it will need staff to fill various retail positions, such as shop floor and supervisory workers.
Sainsbury's, which currently employs 2,600 people in Northern Ireland, said that the move to announce a retail jobs boost would benefit the local economy in Belfast.
David Davidson, regional operations manager for Sainsbury's in Northern Ireland, said: "Sainsbury's is very excited at the prospect of opening our west Belfast store, and in the current economic climate I know that the additional jobs take on an extra significance."
The head of retail at chartered accountants BDO Stoy Hayward recently said that Tesco's pre-tax 2008 profits could be a boon for those looking for retail jobs at the moment, including graduates.
