Tesco Extra jobs: Recruitment centre opens

Tesco Extra Store, Bradley Stoke

The campaign to find staff for Bradley Stoke’s new Tesco Extra store has stepped up a gear with the opening of a dedicated recruitment centre on the Aztec West Business Park.

According to information on the Tesco Careers website, the Bradley Stoke Tesco Recruitment Centre in the Rombourne Business Centre, 130 Aztec West [map] is now open and is scheduled to operate until 6th October. The telephone number of the centre is 01454 629623.

The same Aztec West office was recently used to recruit staff for the new Tesco Direct store that has now opened on the old B&Q site at Cribbs Causeway.

The new store in Bradley Stoke is scheduled to open in “late autumn”, in time for the peak Christmas trading period; the supermarket group is expected to announce a more precise opening date within the next few weeks.

Construction of the new store has been underway since January and progress is said to be “on schedule”. The exterior of the store is at an advanced state of completion and work is now focused on fitting out the interior. Elsewhere on the site, construction of a shopping mall (attached to the northern side of the new store) and town centre units (around a new “town square”) continues.

The new store is approximately two-and-a-half times the size of the existing Tesco store in Bradley Stoke and just 5% smaller than the Asda Wal-Mart store at Cribbs Causeway.

A separate campaign to recruit mangers for the new store has been running since June, and the closing date for these positions is now given as 21st July on the Tesco Careers website.
