Home delivery key to Asda Christmas

Supermarket giant Asda plans to take on more temporary staff for its home delivery operations in the run-up to Christmas.

The retailer has set out plans to invest £5m in customer services and create 7,000 jobs for the Christmas period.

New roles will include home delivery, shop floor  and customer service staff. Asda will also be offering 750,000 hours overtime to existing staff.

Earlier this year Asda opened a semi-automated fulfilment centre dedicated to its online channel to help support future growth.
