With roots dating back to 1913, Aldi came to the UK in 1990 and customers were amazed to see a true example of ‘no frills’ shopping. It’s all about keeping overheads down so that the customer benefits from award-winning quality at low prices. Aldi is a multiple award-winning employer, offering one of the best working environments in the UK and one of the highest rates of pay in the supermarket sector. Voted the 5th Best Graduate Employer in the UK by the Times Top 100, Aldi offers one of the most challenging training programmes in retail.
No other graduate programme offers so much responsibility so quickly, and training covers the complete spectrum of management, from store operations, trading, financial administration, logistics and property management. After a year, you will be expected to be a fully functioning Area Manager, and responsible for up to 4 stores.
Aldi also offers Placement Programmes across Retail Management, Buying, IT, Supply Chain Management, Global Business Coordination or eCommerce Placement. Across the five schemes, you’ll experience early responsibility as well as rare exposure to the internal workings of Aldi. With determination and extraordinary focus you’ll learn a lot about yourself, as you tackle brand new situations and prove your worth in our fast-paced retail environment.
Yes, its demanding - but we provide incredible support. Plus, you’ll have the chance to apply for a permanent role after you graduate.
