Tesco has officially kicked off its festive recruitment campaign as it opens seasonal vacancies for staff to help over Christmas. The jobs are for both Tesco superstores and Tesco Extra branches and roles include picking for online deliveries and in-store replenishment.
Tesco confirmed the news in an update today and said it has already started taking on extra workers.
Half the roles have already been filled by temporary colleagues who joined Tesco during the pandemic and have had their contracts extended to cover Christmas.
This means it intends to take on another 15,000 workers.
The roles are UK-wide and the temporary workers will be encouraged to apply for permanent roles once their temporary contracts have ended.
Separately, the supermarket is also advertising for 3,000 permanent roles within its warehouse distribution team.
Those who are successful in their job application will get a £500 bonus if they join by October 30.
This is then reduced to £250 for those who are taken on between October 31 and November 27.

“Our festive roles are a great way to become part of the Tesco team, from checkouts to picking orders for home delivery or replenishing the store.
“It’s an opportunity to meet great people, learn new skills and be part of a diverse team where everyone is welcome.”
