Stansted’s Tesco Express creates new local jobs

A NEW Tesco Express store opening soon on Cambridge Road, Stansted has received approximately 100 applications for its 16 new jobs.

Tesco recruited staff from the area to work in the new store, and had a pool of CV’s and applications from other recent store openings.

Store manager Martin Copping said: “I was thrilled by the response we received to our recruitment drive. In this time of economic uncertainty, it is great that we are able to create jobs and help get people back into work.

“I am really pleased with my new team and I’m looking forward to working with my new staff. We are delighted to be opening a Tesco Express store on Cambridge Road, and look forward to playing an active role in the local community.”

The store will celebrate its launch on Saturday, when Mandy Fitchett, coordinator for Spangle’s Children’s Centre will be the guest of honour and will cut the ribbon to declare the new store officially open.

As part of the opening celebrations, Mr Copping will present the charity with a cheque for �500. The store chose to donate to Spangle’s Children’s Centre as part of its commitment to supporting the community.

“Were delighted to be able to support Spangle’s Children’s Centre, as they do such great work for the local community,” added Mr Copping.
