Domino's pizza creates 6.000 new jobs as demand rises

Thursday, September 17, 2020

Domino's Pizza will generate 6000 jobs as the company continues to benefit from the Covid 19 pandemic, with households flocking to its pizza deliveries.

The new jobs - which involve pizza chefs, service personnel, delivery drivers - are in addition to the 6.000 jobs the company says it has created since the pandemic began.

Chief Executive Officer Dominic Paul said: "It was a privilege to keep our stores open during Covid-19 and to now be in a position to offer thousands of more people the opportunity to become a Domino's team member.

The new jobs follow similar announcements by supermarkets, online retailers and couriers all adding work in order to meet increasing demand during the pandemic.

However, new roles at Amazon, Tesco and DPD fall far short of anticipated losses in the struggling retail and leisure sector.

The Centre for Retail Research estimates that Britain's retail sector has lost more than 125.000 jobs.

And trade body UK Hospitality warned at the weekend that 450.000 of the one million catering staff in the business still hanging on, could lose their jobs.

Domino's has been having a successful period, as sites have remained open because of its difficulties in running rival restaurants.
