Supermarket Lidl plans to open four new stores across Scotland in Paisley, Dumbarton, Giffnock and East Kilbride, creating hundreds of jobs.
The roles include operations, maintenance, logistics and office support, and 250 jobs are planned in the future to take the warehouse to full capacity.
More positions will be created in modernised and expanded stores in Glasgow, Motherwell, Aberdeen and Ayr.
Ross Millar, regional director for Scotland at Lidl UK, said he is "delighted” to be able to create new jobs.
Lidl, which already employs 2,200 people across Scotland is due to open its first Scottish metropolitan store in Edinburgh in the next 18 months.
A further 100 people will be employed at Lidl's new regional distribution centre at the Eurocentral industrial estate in North Lanarkshire.
