7-Eleven Thailand recruits 20,000 delivery staff
Convenience-store chain 7-Eleven Thailand is recruiting 20,000 workers to make deliveries in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.
With many Thai nationals, visitors and residents confining themselves to home in the interests of social distancing, and malls and most shops and entertainment venues closed, 7-Eleven Thailand parent CP All has announced moves to increase delivery services to support those in isolation.
New staff would be working deliveries from all 7-Eleven locations throughout the country.
Those eligible for the employment opportunity must be over 18 and ideally have their own vehicles. The firm is accepting online applications for the positions.
With more than 800 coronavirus cases and climbing, Bangkok has largely shut down its retail sector as department stores, bars, dine-in restaurants and outlets not trading in essential goods have been forced to shut for several weeks.
