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.

Spider eggs discovered in a bunch of bananas bought from Aldi have been found to belong to a harmless species, the supermarket has said.
Keith Hobbs and his family fled their home, which was fumigated, after they were told they may have been from a venomous Brazilian wandering spider.
The Aldi branch temporarily shut yesterday amid fears the spider could be in the store but reopened after no spiders were found.
The safety of our customers is our absolute number one priority and as such, the bananas in question were immediately removed from the store as a precautionary measure. Following independent expert analysis, we can confirm that the eggs in question were totally harmless and not from the Brazilian Wandering Spider (Phoneutria fera).
Whilst our bananas are of the highest quality and delivered by one of the world's largest suppliers these incidents, whilst extremely rare, can occur and we apologise for the distress caused to Mr Hobbs and his family.
