Press releases say that 500 jobs have been created at the new Lidl depot in East Devon.
PLEASE note that this is NOT the same as 500 full-time jobs. It is quite possible that many jobs are for a limited number of hours.
Newspapers are sloppy about this. Often the number of promised jobs, when converted to full-time equivalent hours (FTE) can be half this number or even less.
ALWAYS ask “How many full-time equivalent jobs?” and get it in writing from the employer.
