Lidl is to create 600 new jobs in Ireland in the next two years, the company has announced. The German supermarket chain, which this week saw year-on-year growth to hold 11.9% of the Irish grocery market, said it is expanding due to this growth in its market share, and requires more staff to support a growing store network.

A recruitment drive is set to be held for staffing of a new warehouse in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, which will be the company’s largest in Ireland.

Lidl, which first established itself in Ireland 16 years ago, currently has 146 stores across the country, and says it has contributed €1.5bn to the Irish economy since its arrival. The news of the jobs creation was welcomed by minister for jobs, enterprise and innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor.
