THREE of Britain's superstore chains are creating up to 24,000 jobs this spring.

Tesco wants around 11,000 new staff as it extends existing stores and opens many more - including at least one new Tesco Express store every week. The company is recruiting staff for new stores in Hucknall and Toton, both in the East Midlands; Horncastle, Lincs; and Elgin in the Scottish Highlands, all due to open this month.

A store in Longton, Staffs, opens early in June, followed by Shettleston in Glasgow; Withernsea, East Yorks; Brighouse, West Yorks; and Bordon, Hants, all planned for July.

B & Q will create over 3,000 jobs before the end of this year with a string of store openings.

First to open this month is a B & Q Warehouse at Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which at the last count still had 75 full and part-time vacancies.

There are also vacancies available at Leyton, East London; Doncaster; Newport on the Isle of Wight; Holywood, Belfast; and Camborne, Cornwall, all due to open by summer.

In the longer term, B & Q has even bigger expansion in mind, with plans to open up to 100 mini-warehouse stores in the years ahead.
