Our colleagues are our biggest asset. Our team of friendly faces works as one to provide shopping trips you won’t find anywhere else. Over 9,000 trained butchers, bakers, fishmongers, cheesemongers and other skilled in-store specialists make and prepare food in store – more than any other UK retailer.
In return for looking after our customers, we look after our people with great perks, career opportunities and training. We are committed to building and investing in talented teams, and over the past decade we’ve won multiple industry awards for the quality of our employment, skills and training.
We always look to employ local people with a passion for food, and we are proud of our progress as a diverse and inclusive employer. We’re working hard to make sure we truly represent the communities we serve, and typically around 75% of our store colleagues live within three miles of the store they work in.
In line with our approach to offer a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work, we became the first UK supermarket to guarantee pay of at least £10 an hour from April 2021.
