Sainsbury's increase graduate jobs by 30%
Wednesday, 19 August 2009
Despite the recession, supermarket giant Sainsbury's has announced that it will boost its graduate recruitment levels by 30 per cent in the coming year.
Those looking for graduate jobs in 2010 will be able to take advantage of the increased quota, which sees the number of positions at the firm rise from 65 to 85, according to Personnel Today.
Work placements with the firm open to graduates will also triple in the year, with 64 university leavers being able to build up some experience before landing themselves more permanent employment.
Jo Gidley, graduate recruitment manager at Sainsbury's, told the news provider: "We have an ambitious expansion programme over the next three years so it is vital that we continue to provide a pipeline of talented retail leaders."
Fellow supermarket chain Tesco also announced recently that it would continue to supply graduate jobs through the recession, with positions still available in its commercial sector.
