Two hundred new jobs are to be created at a new Tesco store being built on Tyneside.
The store is part of the Trinity Square development in Gateshead.
A recruitment hotline will open on Monday and priority will be given initially to people who have been unemployed for at least six months.
The development also includes other shops, a cinema and student accommodation and will bring a thousand new jobs in total to the area.
