Domino’s Pizza planning to hire 8,000 delivery drivers in UK and Ireland

This marks the second hiring spree of the year for the company.

As businesses across the country struggle to find workers, Domino’s Pizza Group said it is planning to hire 8,000 delivery drivers in the UK and Ireland.

More than half of the jobs will be permanent, seeking to meet growing demand and for the seasonal Christmas rush.

Dominic Paul, Domino’s chief executive, said the pizza company’s supply chain had coped well “despite the well-publicised inflationary pressures and challenging labour market.”.

“While we see these pressures continuing into 2022, our success in managing them to date provides us with confidence that our growth momentum will be sustained,” he added.

Domino’s posted £376 million in sales in its financial quarter ending on 26 September, a 10% increase from the same period in 2020 and 20% on 2019.

The 8,000 new jobs also marks the second hiring spree of the year for the company, after it said in June that it would hire 5,000 pizza chefs and delivery drivers.

The company has said it aims to open another 200 locations in the next few years.
