Lidl has revealed plans to recruit up to 220 new members of staff in Scotland over the next 12 months, through four new store openings and investment in its existing portfolio.

New stores in Rosyth, Glasgow Finnieston, Glasgow Robroyston and an as yet undisclosed location will add to the current estate of 103 Scottish sites. Upgrades are planned for several existing stores including Kirkwall, Kelso and Kilsyth.

The discounter also recently revealed a list of 28 ‘sites of interest’ across the country.

The ongoing expansion in Scotland is part of Lidl’s target of opening 1,000 stores across Great Britain by the end of 2023.

Ross Millar, Lidl’s Regional Director for Scotland, said: “At the beginning of 2020 we opened our 100th store in Scotland. To be able to continue that growth across the country is an exciting prospect and reinforces our commitment to creating new jobs and providing Scottish communities with quality produce at Lidl value prices.”
