Two more open days planned as Morrisons step up hunt for staff at new Wisbech store

MORRISONS plan two more recruitment days this month as they set about finding the 280 or so workers needed to staff their new Wisbech store.

Butchers and bakers are among the staff the supermarket giant is now trying to hire.

Fenland District Council and JobCentre Plus have been involved in the recruitment process with Morrison’s who open later this year on Elm High Road, Wisbech.

“Until recently the focus has been on recruitment for managerial posts but now they are beginning to look for other staff,” said a council spokesman.

“This week there was a preliminary assessment day for about 50 candidates put forward by JobCentre Plus.

“FDC officers took part in that and were very impressed by the overall quality of all those who attended: they were well turned out, polite and friendly - and, encouragingly, they were all local people.

“Forty-two of them are being put forward for interviews.”
