During the first six months of 2012, the chain has already opened 49 smaller stores and believes that this growth will continue at a pace of one or two new stores a week until 2015.
The new vacancies will include customer service and sales jobs, as well as more executive positions, said Sainsbury's director of convenience Simon Twigger.
"Work in our convenience business is particularly fast-paced and flexible, with great opportunities for progression. It's one of the best possible starts to a career in retail," he added.
This will be the latest expansion in the supermarket giant's workforce.
Last month, Sainsbury's announced that it would create 5,000 extra seasonal jobs, bringing the total number of temporary staff working at its premises over the festive period to 20,000.
