300 people have applied for jobs at a new Tesco store due to open in the city.
Supermarket giant Tesco said its Express store opening in Lincoln High Street has received 25 applications for each of the 12 vacancies.
Of the 300 applications received, approximately 70 interviews were carried out.
As reported in the Echo, the store is set to open in the former Wingads after securing a deal in March.
Store manager Jason Shakespeare said: "I was thrilled by the response we received to our recruitment drive.
"In this time of economic uncertainty, it is great that we are able to create jobs for our local community and help get people back into work.
"I am really pleased with my new team and I'm looking forward to working with the new staff. We look forward to playing an active role in the local community."
The store will be open daily between 7am and 11pm. It will have bakery, beers and wine and everyday food items.
