Morrisons is to hire 3,500 new workers as part of plans to ramp up its home delivery service during the coronavirus pandemic.
The grocer plans to employ 2,500 new pickers and delivery drivers, as well as 1,000 new warehouse staff, to help serve customers “at a time of national need”.
The supermarket giant will use 100 additional stores across the UK for online picking to help it fulfil extra orders and will also launch a customer call centre, allowing consumers who can’t shop online the ability to order groceries for home delivery.
