THE extended Sainsbury’s store in Whitley Bay has provided a huge boost to local employment with the news that 60 new posts have been filled.

55 part-time colleagues and 5 full-time colleagues have been recruited at the store, situated on Newstead Drive in the seaside town.

All of the jobs have gone to people within a 5 mile radius of the store, giving local residents the chance to build a career at the national chain.

In total, 305 colleagues will be working at the store which has been extended by over to 12,000 sq ft to 47,000 sq ft.
