General Management Industrial Placement
A year in industry is a great way to see how a company works. But our General Management Industrial Placement provides so much more. Over the year, you’ll experience real responsibility. In fact, fast rotations across store and office environments will give you a breathtaking snapshot of our business and the skills you need to succeed. What will you do when you’re handed the keys and told: “You’re in charge”? Well, it’s time to find out.
What you'll do
You'll spend the first few months in store, learning about (and actually doing) everyone's different roles. It can be very hard work: you could be stacking shelves, operating the till, serving customers…whatever's required, you're there with a helpful smile and a good head on your shoulders. Once you know what goes into every role, you'll be better equipped to manage and lead the team.
Along the way, you'll complete a number of different projects in a variety of areas across the business, including Logistics, Administration, Property and Trading. You'll also work alongside an Area Manager, getting a real insight into their role. As a result, you'll be perfectly placed to hit the ground running on our Area Manager Programme once you've graduated. It can be daunting – but it can also be a fantastic opportunity to learn and be inspired by a company that's so different to all the others.
Who we're looking for
The General Management Industrial Placement is so much more than a learning experience. It’s a real job with actual responsibilities. And it can be hard work. Which is why we look for people who like to take on any challenge, and enjoy exceeding expectations. Everyone is different at Aldi. It’s what makes it work. But we also share some amazing traits. It’s about never giving up; always striving for smarter and simpler ways of doing things.
