Supermarket giant Tesco to create more than 120 jobs at new store in Kinson

Bournemouth Echo: Work at the Tesco store site Work at the Tesco store site

THE new Tesco store that will be built in Kinson is set to create more than 120 jobs, the retail giant has told the Daily Echo.

Work is continuing apace to clear the site of the old arcade in Wimborne Road, with the Royal Oak pub coming down last weekend – and Sophie Akokhia, Tesco’s corporate affairs manager, has met with business leaders in the suburb.

She said that around 120 jobs would be created, with recruitment starting in August and an event being held for those who are interested.

Anyone who has been unemployed for more than six months will be guaranteed an interview, she said.

Sophie added: “We are delighted that work’s under way and positive progress is being made. The summer will signal another exciting phase, with the Tesco and new retail units starting to take shape.

“We hope to open our doors before Christmas and look forward to boosting shopping choice, as well as becoming one of the community’s biggest employers.”

She visited Kinson this week and met with Ramesh Lal, chairman of Kinson Business Forum.

Ramesh said: “We found common ground that will help raise the positive profile of Kinson and we can work together towards enhancing the benefits for the local community and business/service providers.

“I feel confident that with the imminent arrival of Tesco, the local economy will benefit with new jobs and a likely increase in more shoppers.

“We have 39,000 cars passing through this road on a daily basis.

“The potential to make this area a shop-stop is obvious and we see this as an opportunity to offer Kinson’s real treasure – its rich, colourful and exciting heritage and history.

“With so many green spaces and the regeneration of the schools, leisure centre, library and community services, Kinson can become a very attractive area both to live and visit.”

Community role
TESCO corporate affairs manager Sophie Akokhia said: “We believe in Kinson High Street and want to play an active role in the community.
“We are looking forward to working in partnership with the business forum and have lots of ideas that we would like to explore.”

Wonderful! But how many will be full-time - probably less than 30 of the 120, the rest will be for contracts of less than 20 hours!

Whilst I agree that the old site needed to be redeveloped, I question whether yet another Tesco is the right answer. To say 120 jobs will be created is surely a myth as how many jobs were lost by all the other shops closing and as Branksome Boy says, how many will be full time? Knowing Tesco they will all be part time with contracts well below 10 hours a week. For Tesco to say '“We believe in Kinson High Street and want to play an active role in the community' is also a myth. All they want are bigger profits.

I don't live in Kinson but know the area well, and there is nothing wrong with it at all, it is a typical suburb.
Many jobs may be part time but I imagine a large number of staff will be locals who want a few hours work on the tills a day to fit around family commitments.
I fear the fruit and veg store on the high street may suffer, but apart from that I think this development is good for the area, and I do not believe that the rest of the businesses there will be adversely affected.

I am pleased that Tesco is opening up in Kinson but perhaps we need to put the headline grabbing 'create more than 120 new jobs' PR media spin into more realistic perspective.

Because not so long ago there were many small retail businesses on this site with proprietors and assistants earning their livelihoods, there was a previous small supermarket employing many staff and a management, a pub also with it's own management and staff and just a little longer ago a modest sized petrol station.

Every single one of those jobs has now gone.

Agreed, although I welcome new jobs, the likes of Tesco know that the they can get away with part time, low paid jobs because the taxpayer will make up the difference with Tax Credits.

Why does every story in this paper end up in a tit for tat arguement on what someone has said. Why can't we just stick to the story in question.

It is about time Kinson was modernised, and brought up to date with superior shopping, and the increase in jobs. Yes, 120 does not sound a lot, but it is more than was lost due to the demise of the parade.

In case you had not noticed there is a brand new Co-OP store a bit further up Kinson road so I would imagine the workers will be employed there.
Probably find that they have already paid them off and got rid of them, not as ethical as they make out the Co-op!

The Co-op that closed was operated by Co0op south, The new one opening is Co-op North with no obligation to reemploy the workers from the old store.

not sure what you mean by outlawing unsociable hours. are you saying shops should only open mon-fri 9 till 5?
offering only 20 hour jobs or zero hour should be outlawed. they have been in other countries.

Agreed, although I welcome new jobs, the likes of Tesco know that the they can get away with part time, low paid jobs because the taxpayer will make up the difference with Tax Credits.
isn't it better to have people on part time jobs and tax credits rather than unemployed and on full benefits?

some of the posters on here seem to hanker after a utopian cloud cuckoo land!
hows bout something radical and giving people full time jobs?? attitudes like yours are exactly why the nation is straing under a mlountain of debt and people are exploited left right and centre.
it costs the taxpayer fortunes in tax credits whilst tesco make enormous profits at the expense of their suplliers, local communities and their staff.
why rely on the governement to pay people??
shocking attitude

The problem with Kinson is the small minority of residents that cause trouble and steal and vandalise people's property ( we had a brick through our window and paint poured over our motorbike with its brake wires cut for example) who's utter disrespect for the law and other people mean the majority have to suffer, it would be a nice place to live if it weren't for these people

i fail to see how having 40 or so people in fulltime jobs and 80 on full benefits is significantly better than having 120 people working part time, some of them on tax credits. this isn't an attitude, but simple arithmetic.
