More than 900 people applied for just 12 new jobs in a new Tesco store set to open in Edgware later this year.

The supermarket, in Glengall Road, received over 75 applications for each new position - all of which have since been filled by local people.

Store manager Devang Patel and his team recruited staff to work in the new store, which they hope will have a “community feel”.

Mr Patel, who has worked at Tesco for four years, said: “The response to our recruitment process has been fantastic.

“As a store we are delighted to be creating additional jobs for our local community and for local people, helping them back into employment.”
