We’re delighted to announce 700 brand-new jobs this year AND a pay rise for all employees worth €14 million! These new jobs within our Irish operations will be across our network of 176 stores, 3 regional distribution centres and our Dublin head office. That brings our total workforce in the Republic of Ireland to more than 6,000 employees for the first time. That’s not all – we’re also investing €14 million in pay increases for our existing workforce in the Republic of Ireland! All employees will benefit from an increase from March 1st, 2023. On average this will result in a 7.5% pay increase for employees, approximately between €2,000-€2,500 additional for every employee per year. This increase is in addition to our commitment in October to paying the new Living Wage rate of €13.85 as recommended by the Living Wage Technical Group. We were the first nationwide retailer in Ireland to adopt the Living Wage recommendation in 2015. For the third year running, Lidl has been recognised by the Top Employers Institute as a ‘Top Employer for 2023’.
