Tesco is placing an exra 15,000 staff in stores this Christmas to help shoppers 'every step of the way'.
From the start of December, the additional staff, including some from Tesco head office, will head to stores across the UK to work in a range of departments.
Nearly 60,000 people were interviewed for 'Festive Colleague' roles at Tesco this year. Tesco's Feet on the Floor programme will also get thousands of Tesco head office colleagues to head down to stores over the festive period.
The programme is designed to help the supermarket deliver the best possible customer service and allows staff to share experiences with one another at a crucial time of year. Tesco head office employees are set to work the equivalent of 10,000 days in stores over the next six weeks.
Tony Hoggett, UK chief operating officer at Tesco said: “Our colleagues are already doing a wonderful job getting ready for the festive season and with our additional Festive Colleagues joining them in store, we’re ready to help our customers every step of the way this Christmas.”
