A NEW supermarket opening in Sheffield later this month has received more than 100 applications for just nine new jobs - more than 11 applicants for every vacancy.
Karen Skillcorn, store manager of the new Tesco Express on Dykes Hall Road, conducted 80 interviews.
The store worked in conjunction with the West Street Jobcentre and relied on word of mouth to help drum up interest in the vacancies. It led to all the jobs being offered to local residents.
Karen said: “I was thrilled by the response we received to our recruitment drive.”
