More than 300 people have applied for positions at the new Waitrose store in Sidcup in the first few days applications have been open.

There are only up to 60 positions available at the supermarket in Sidcup High Street, a mixture of full-time and part-time assistant role.

The window for applications, which only opened on Friday, was closed following the overwhelming response. Store bosses will now go through the applications before inviting candidates for interviews at the end of July.

Director of development Nigel Keen said: “It’s been a phenomenal response and we are really encouraged by the calibre of applications as well as so many people wanting to work for our business.

“We pride ourselves on ensuring our shops have a local identity and that starts with the staff we employ - we look forward to welcoming successful candidates in the near future.”

The store is due to open at the end of August or the start of September.
