“From today, we have also opened up vacancies for several managerial positions at the store and people interested should visit our recruitment centre or pop into Job Centre Plus for an application form.”

The managerial positions open include areas such as homewares and fresh food.

Mr Johnson added: “Asda colleagues have a reputation as being approachable, helpful and diligent and the number of applications we have already received shows that people want to work for Asda.

“A good Asda colleague isn't necessarily about qualifications or experience and is as much about being a friendly, outgoing people person who can offer our customers the friendliest and best service available.”

Anyone wanting to apply for a position at the new Asda store can either visit the recruitment centre at Berkeley Business Centre, in Fisons House, Princes Street, or ask at their local Job Centre Plus.
