The new recruits will represent about 10 per cent of the total CP workforce, said CEO Suphachai Chearavanont.
New graduates aged 25 and under from both vocational colleges and universities will be hired.
Of the total, 8,000 will be hired by CP Foods (CPF), 12,000 by CPAll (7-Eleven), 5,000 by Siam Makro, and 3,000 by True Corporation.
CPF will hire 4,000 for its operations in Bangkok and another 4,000 in provinces.
True has employed 6,500 new workers during the Covid crisis and will employ 3,000 more from September to December.
Each year, 400,000 to 500,000 new graduates enter the labour market.
