The retailer, which has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, also plans to continue to invest locally in its longstanding supplier base supporting the livelihood of many local partners with dedicated promotions including Limerick-based Cahill’s Farm Cheese.

The announcement of the new roles comes as Lidl has been confirmed as one of just 14 Irish companies recognized by the Top Employers Institute as a Top Employer for 2021.

Recently awarded Best COVID-19 Response by a Retailer at the Irish Quality Food Awards, the retailer’s frontline workers dedication has not gone unnoticed and Lidl has now also committed to a €2 million investment in a COVID Employee Bonus for all employees on the island of Ireland, with €38,000 allocated to Limerick-based employees.

Commenting on the announcement, Maeve McCleane, Director of Human Resources for Lidl Ireland said: “Since the onset of the pandemic our teams have demonstrated incredible agility, selflessness, and dedication in serving our local communities, ensuring that our customers across the county had access to the food and supplies they needed. I am pleased to confirm this significant investment in the form of a third bonus to recognize their phenomenal contribution as frontline workers during an exceptionally challenging time.”
