Dudley MP Ian Austin has organised a jobs fayre so that local people can find out about jobs at the new Aldi store on Priory Road.
Local residents have been invited to discuss job opportunities and any questions about the new store with Aldi bosses at 11am on Saturday 25th June at Priory Primary School, Limes Road, Dudley DY1 4AQ.
The new store will open later this year employing 35 new members of staff and six deputy managers.
Last year Austin consulted with local residents over Aldi’s plans, finding that eight in ten were in support with 87 percent saying it would help tackle unemployment in the area.
The MP has now organised the jobs fayre and written to local residents encouraging them to come so that as many jobs as possible are filled by local people.
Ian Austin said:
“One of the reasons local people supported Aldi’s plan for a new supermarket was because it would create over forty new jobs in an area of high unemployment.
“I want local people to get those jobs so I have organised this jobs fayre and written to everyone living locally encouraging them to apply.
“I would like to thank Aldi, local councillors Ken Finch, Margaret Aston and Alan Finch who have backed these plans to benefit local residents.”
