I think that they would Transfer Ready Trained staff from Ebbw Vale and take the new ones on at Ebbw Vale for Training before the shop Opens

Well Fredd, my daughter had an interview with Tesco Tredegar and the interviewer told her that the jobs were for 9 hours only. He said they would rather give employment to more people with less hours than hire less people with more hours.

Its probably all to do with national minimum wage and jobs of around nine hours per week will be more appealing to younger people still in school. Rates are 6.08 21 & over. 4.98 18 to 20. and school age 16 & 17 its 3.68 per hour. Its still a good thing that tesco is coming back to tredegar and in time to come if its successfull it probably will create more jobs. But you are right if you had a familly and a house how can you manage on nine hours a week. It def looks better on paper than in real terms.

So would it be a good guess to say that the 2 full time jobs are managers and that it's a possibility that they are already employed by Tesco anyway as i can't see how they would let 2 new employee's run a new store not unless they have be taken on and trained a few months ago.
