Supply Chain Management Industrial Placement
Our Head Office is at the very centre of everything Aldi. Which is why we won’t waste any of your time. You’ll get an amazing introduction to our business, packed with world-class training. And you’ll have a mentor to support you throughout. Then, you’ll get immersed in at least one project, making decisions that will have a real impact on our business. There aren’t many students who can go back to university saying that.
This is your chance to get a real taste of Supply Chain Management, working in the team responsible for getting the products from Buying to our Distribution Centres across the UK and Ireland on time, every time.
We move millions of pallets of products each year via air, sea, road and rail from all four corners of the planet, from biscuits in Montreal to mangoes from Senegal. Aside from ensuring everything received by our Regions is in pristine condition, we work tirelessly with the Buyers to ensure market leading supply chain costs are achieved, therefore a keen interest in how international supply chains operate is a must.
Within the placement you can expect to spend time with all the team within National Logistics who look after the various elements of the Aldi supply chain, prior to being handed a major project to undertake, which could focus on any element of our Logistics network and how service can be improved or costs can be reduced. You will have real responsibility that will culminate in a tangible bottom line value being added to a major global business within your time on the placement. This is something that will certainly set you apart when returning to your final year of study.
Who we're looking for
With incredible training and the chance to get stuck into real projects, a Head Office Industrial Placement is more than just an 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.
