Domino’s has revealed it is creating 5,000 jobs as it continues to benefit from people staying home amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

The new positions will include pizza chefs, customer service workers and delivery drivers, and are on top of the 6,000 jobs Domino’s said it has already created since the start of the pandemic.

Domino’s remained open throughout lockdown and, at the height of the restrictions, claimed that the Government had ‘asked Domino’s stores to remain open and provide local communities freshly made pizza to help boost morale and keep people safe at home’. 

Bosses said they would also create 1,000 apprenticeship positions under the Government’s new Kickstart scheme, with ‘ambitious individuals’ given the opportunity to apply for permanent roles following a six-month placement. 

Chief executive Dominic Paul said: ‘It was a privilege to keep our stores open during Covid-19 and to now be in a position to offer thousands more people the opportunity to become a Domino’s team member.

‘We’re also delighted to have applied to support the Government’s Kickstart scheme, offering young people the chance to get back into work and to build lifelong skills through our training programmes.’

‘Together, these over 6,000 new roles will help Domino’s continue to safely serve our local communities as we head towards the busy festive period.’

He added that the apprentices will have access to e-learning modules on ’employability skills’, including timekeeping and teamwork, and will earn ‘in line with current store pay levels’.

The company is hoping to maintain its high levels of riders and cooks going into store management, with 80% of store managers having started their Domino’s career in entry-level positions.

The jobs being created follow similar announcements from supermarkets, online retailers and courier firms, who have all increased their workforces due to surging demand during the pandemic.

However, the new roles at the likes of Amazon, Tesco and DPD fall well short of the expected losses in the hard-hit retail and leisure industry.

Estimates from the Centre for Retail Research found that more than 125,000 jobs have been lost in the UK shopping sector.

And leisure industry trade body UK Hospitality warned over the weekend that 450,000 of the one million workers in the pubs and hospitality sector who are still on furlough could lose their jobs.

Domino’s had a successful lockdown, with sites remaining open as rival restaurants struggled to operate.

Mr Paul, who joined earlier this year, has been working hard to nurture relationships with franchise partners, where the jobs will be created.

He is attempting to build bridges following years of acrimony between franchisees and Domino’s former boss, David Wild.

His preferred combative style saw him burn through four chief financial officers in just three years prior to his announced retirement in August 2019.

It comes as it was revealed around 695,000 UK workers have been removed from the payrolls of British companies since March when the coronavirus lockdown began, according to official figures.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the rate of unemployment increased as another 36,000 jobs fell off payrolls across the country.

Meanwhile, unemployment increased by 62,000 to 1.4 million for the three months to July.

It said the rate of unemployment therefore increased to 4.1%, in line with analyst expectations.

This was the first time the jobless rate has increased since the pandemic spread across the UK.

Companies have continued to announce redundancy programmes through the pandemic, with London City Airport the latest to reveal cuts as it announced 239 jobs losses on Monday.

The ONS said the increase in unemployment has particularly impacted young people, as it revealed a 76,000 rise in the number of unemployed people aged between 16 and 24 over the past year.

Meanwhile, the number of people in employment dropped to 32.98 million, falling 12,000 since the previous quarter.

However, the rate of employment nudged 0.1 percentage points higher to 76.5%.
