Aldi to launch recruitment drive between now and Christmas

Aldi has revealed it is to create over 2000 new jobs across the UK between now and Christmas.

The move follows the discount retailer, which currently has over 920 stores and employs around 38,000 people, pushing ahead with its plans to open more than one new store a week this year.

As a result, Aldi is opening new stores in towns and cities such as Canterbury, Swansea and London, as well as many others up and down the country.

Aldi employees can earn up to £10.57 nationally, and £11.32 inside the M25, with the grocer also paying for breaks.

Other store roles available will include managerial positions, caretakers and cleaners, as well as store apprentices.

Aldi is also currently recruiting for 900 jobs across its 13 Regional Distribution Centres around the UK, and a further 175 vacancies at its Warwickshire head office.

It also announced it is on the lookout for over 80 graduates to join its next graduate scheme intake, starting from September onwards.

“I am unbelievably proud of our amazing Aldi colleagues, and what they have achieved together over the last year,” Aldi UK chief executive Giles Hurley said.

“As we continue to invest in new stores, bringing unbeatable Aldi prices to millions of customers, we’re looking for thousands more colleagues to join our incredible teams across the country. I look forward to welcoming each and every one of them in the future.”
