More positive employment news  has just been released, with Morrisons announcing that it is to create thousands of jobs next year as it expands its network of stores around the country. The supermarket giant said 25 new shops are to be opened in 2012, as well as a new regional distribution centre in the south of England. This will provide 7,000 people with employment and goes towards the company's aim of ensuring more households have a Morrisons supermarket within driving distance. Since 75 per cent of the chain's employees are typically from the area around each store and approximately half were without a job before starting work with Morrisons, this could provide a vital boost to those suffering as a result of unemployment up and down Britain. Group HR director Norman Pickavance said:

"Despite the difficult economic conditions, Morrisons continues to have ambitious growth plans and that means we will be searching for people to join us in the communities in which we operate."
