Mercadona is already recruiting for the stores it will open in Portugal next year

The 2022 expansion process has just begun, but the chain is already leaving vacancies for 2023.

Four stores have already been planned for 2023.

In early April, the first of ten supermarkets opened in Portugal, which Mercado plans to open in the coming months. The expansion plan for 2022 nationwide has just begun, but the chain is already recruiting for the facilities that will open in 2023. So far, four farms are planned, all in the Porto and Aveiro areas.

The new supermarkets are located in Marco de Canaveses, Lousada, Gondomar and also in Oliveira de Azeméis. You can find and apply for various offers on the recruitment website of the Spanish chain. There are both part-time and full-time jobs. In total, the reseller employs 260 people in various industries.

Mercadona’s next opening is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 3, in Póvoa de Varzim. By the end of the year, the brand will also open premises in eight locations: Oeiras, Setúbal, Montijo, Santarém, Viseu, Santa Maria da Feira, Caldas da Rainha and Braga.

With these openings, which will create 650 jobs, Mercadona will reach five areas where it does not yet exist. We are talking about Lisbon, Setúbal, Leiria, Santarém and Viseu. By the end of 2022, there will be 39 supermarkets owned by Spanish retailers in the country.

Mercadona ended 2021 with sales of € 415 million in Portugal. Adding the Spanish results, the value was € 27,819 million. There are more than 2,500 employees in the country who have received performance bonuses of EUR 3 million. Virtually everyone received an extra salary – the amount is not the same for everyone, as pay scales vary depending on the tasks performed.
