Lidl Ireland has announced that it is to recruit more than 1,200 new employees to its Irish operations this year in a variety of operational and office-based roles across its store network of 168 store locations, three regional distribution centres and Dublin head office.
The new roles are being created to support Lidl’s growing footprint of stores nationwide that will see the retailer open six new stores, carry out seven rebuilds of existing stores as well as embark on a €75 million expansion project on its Mullingar regional distribution centre.
Successful candidates will be offered the retailer’s market leading benefits packages and award-winning learning & development opportunities within in the business, the discounter said.
Commenting on the announcement, Maeve McCleane, director of Human Resources at Lidl Ireland & Northern Ireland said: “Since the onset of the pandemic our teams have demonstrated inspirational dedication and bravery in serving our local communities when they needed it most. I am delighted to confirm this significant investment in the form of a third bonus to acknowledge their selflessness and hard work in this challenging time."
“Our most important asset has always been our people, and 2020 has reinforced that they are in fact the bedrock of our business which is why we have prioritised building not only an exceptional place to work, but also an inclusive, rewarding and fulfilling culture at Lidl for our employees. It is with great pride that we accept this year’s Top Employers certification and I look forward to welcoming many new colleagues to team Lidl in the coming months,” she added.
