Sainsbury's to create 'thousands' of jobs in West Midlands

Published: Friday, 03 June 2011   Category: Retail

A supermarket predicts it will create "thousands" of jobs - likely to include graduate roles - in the West Midlands, as it plans a range of new retail outlets.

According to BBC News, Sainsbury's has announced that around 400 jobs will be created in the immediate future as they open a new store Longbridge.

There could be up to ten times this amount created in the area over the coming years, as Sainsbury's plan locations in nearby Erdington and Dorridge.

Justin King, the chief executive of the supermarket giant, told the news provider that he "wouldn't be surprised if [they created between] 3,000 and 4,000 jobs in the wider West Midlands region" in the near future.

However, this is a small amount compared to the 20,000 roles Mr King expects the supermarket to create across the country over the next three years.

Sainsbury's created 6,500 jobs in the United Kingdom last year, with many of these roles made through the supermarket's graduate scheme.
