Asda is opening a new store in Whalebone Lane, Chadwell Heath at the end of October and Barking and Dagenham Council, along with the Jobcentre Plus, will be running presentation sessions to local residents who are interested in applying for work at the new store.

The presentation sessions will take place at the Barking Learning Centre on Monday 29th July and Tuesday 30th July with four sessions per day running at these times:

  • 9.00am
  • 9.45am
  • 10.30am
  • 11.15am

The sessions will be based in the conference room, interested residents should contact 020 8724 8870 / 020 8724 8877 or email stating their name, contact details and what session they would like to attend.

The idea is to help local residents with the application process for the roles on offer which include; checkout operators, porters, and home and leisure staff. These jobs cover both day and night shifts.

To begin the application process you can visit and complete their questionnaire and psychometric test.
