A NEW food store is set to bring up to 30 new jobs to Oldbury when it opens later this year.

The Food Warehouse is due to launch its latest branch at Oldbury Green Retail Park in September, but bosses are already on the lookout for staff members.

The supermarket, which launched its first store four years ago, is offering candidates a starting rate of pay of £8.62 per hour – nearly one pound above the National Minimum Wage – with successful applicants being trained in all aspects of the store operation.

Candidates interested in applying for a job at the store should visit jobs.iceland.co.uk and search ‘The Food Warehouse Oldbury’.

Lee Carroll, recruitment manager for The Food Warehouse, said: “We’re looking for exceptional candidates to join us across a number of roles here in Oldbury. It’s an exciting time to join The Food Warehouse as we rapidly expand our business across the UK.

“In addition to some fantastic employee benefits, as a brand we believe in nurturing talent from within the company and have a number of schemes available to help ambitious team members achieve their goals.

“We would encourage anyone interested in finding out more, to get in touch.”
