Lidl is launching a recruitment drive over the next five months, and there are plenty of locations in Essex that currently have vacancies.

The supermarket will be aiming to fill over a thousand new hourly paid roles across the UK, with new staff getting a minimum wage of £10.90 outside of London.

These new roles will be permanent and include a combination of full-time and part-time positions.

Nan Gibson, Lidl's chief HR officer said: "As our customer base continues to grow, and as we open more new stores and warehouses, we need more people to join team Lidl.

"Not only will new colleagues be the highest paid in the industry as a result of our newly increased rates, they also be part of an amazing team of people that are working to help make good food accessible to all households, at a time that is so needed."
