Lithuanian retailer Maxima LT is to create around 419 new jobs across different regions of Lithuania in 2021.

According to the management, the majority of currently open positions are for cashiers, vending machine operators-loaders and the hall staff.

The growing number of new jobs is determined by the expansion of the retail chain of Maxima as well as by the Resolution of the Government that came into effect on 13 September 2021. The Resolution foresees that only vaccinated or regularly tested employees can work in the retail sector. For the latter reason, about 50 employees voluntarily left the company in September 2021.

Maxima Group is the owner of the retail chains Maxima (in the Baltic countries), Aldik (in Poland) and T-Market (in Bulgaria), and of the Barbora e-grocery business operating in Lithuania and Latvia. Currently, Maxima LT owns 252 retail chains in Lithuania where it employs 12,481 people.
