200 new colleagues for Lotus’s

Lotus’s Malaysia is looking to recruit 200 new local colleagues in our Bukit Beruntung, Selangor Distribution Centre (DC) within the first half of 2021, thus further affirming our commitment to creating employment in the country.

Incidentally, our Bukit Beruntung DC and Simpang Pulai, Perak DC has been fully managed and operated by Malaysians since November 2020, as a response to the government’s call in creating employment for Malaysians following the high unemployment rate on the back of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Earlier this year, there had been some concerns about the employment status of Tesco colleagues once we have taken over. Rest assured, there are no plans for job cuts, and we will continue to be recruiting to support our growth aspirations and plans,” said Lotus’s President, Kenneth Chuah.

“The pandemic has put many people out of a job and in support of the government’s initiative in creating employment for Malaysians, we are offering 200 permanent positions for job seekers in our Bukit Beruntung DC,” he continued.

Malaysians aged 18 to 50, with a minimum education level of Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) or Penilaian Tingkatan 3 (PT3) and are willing to work shifts, five days a week are welcome to apply. Lotus’s also offers a yearly bonus, insurance, Employee Provident Fund and Social Security Organization contributions.

Lotus’s also welcome women to work in the DCs. As of today, over 30 per cent of colleagues who operate the machinery and drive the forklift are women. This is particularly significant as, before 2020, Lotus’s DCs were predominantly managed by men.
