Asda cash and carry

Asda has revealed more plans for a new store format, as it continues to recruit for its convenience and wholesale business.

In a job listing for a property acquisitions surveyor posted this month, the supermarket chain said: “As an acquisitions manager with Asda, you will be integral to our significant growth plans and be at the forefront of our ambition to grow existing formats and spearhead our plans to develop a convenience chain, a new format for the business.”

The listing comes as the supermarket has been active in boosting a new convenience and wholesale arm following its takeover by forecourt operator EG Group.

A previous job listing for a senior director of channel operations (wholesale and convenience) said the new division would contribute significantly to Asda’s growth ambitions.
