Supermarket chain Aldi has announced it is to create 5,000 jobs and open 80 new stores this year under expansion plans.
Jobs at the new stores will include managers, stock assistants and store staff, who join a total work force of 28,000 people.
The German-owned company has appealed for "long-term" workers as part of an expansion that takes its number of outlets to 700.
Regional managing director Ruth Doyle said: "We're looking for individuals with a real passion for retail who are seeking a long-term career with a growing and ambitious business."
Aldi is notable for paying employees a minimum rate of £8.40 an hour (£9.45 in London) that clearly exceeds the Government's new national living wage of £7.40 for adults from April.

When Maurice Wilks, Rover's Chief Designer, penned the design for the Land Rover in 1947 he probably didn't think he would be responsible for a motoring icon.
He wanted an agricultural version of the highly successful American-built Willis Jeep used throughout the Second World War.
He'd used a Jeep on his farm on Anglesey and so designed the Series 1 Land Rover at Red Wharf Bay.
The body was made from an aluminium alloy called Birmabright because steel was in short supply after the war.
Production started in Solihull in 1948 and was meant to last just a few years but 68 years and many versions later it finally reaches the end of the road.
Motoring journalist Quentin Willson has blamed "EU imbeciles" for the demise of the Land Rover Defender.
Production of the vehicle came to an end after 68 years this morning at the company's plant in Solihull.
Speaking to ITV News, Mr Willson said tough EU emissions tests were to blame for the end of the Land Rover Defender.
