Aldi reveals pay rise for all UK staff


Aldi has revealed a pay rise for 28,000 store employees from 1 February 2022.

The German discount retailer will pay all store colleagues at least £10.10 an hour nationwide and £11.55 for employees inside the M25.

Aldi remains the only supermarket to offer paid breaks, which for the average store colleague is worth £750 annually.

The new pay rates exceed the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended real living wage rates of £9.90 an hour nationally and £11.05 an hour inside the M25.

“The commitment and enthusiasm of our colleagues has driven our success over many years, particularly during the last 18 months,” Aldi UK chief executive officer Giles Hurley.

“We want to ensure our colleagues are always fully rewarded for their amazing work. These new rates, together with the fact that we are the only supermarket to pay colleagues for breaks taken during their shifts, means we continue to offer the best pay in the supermarket sector.”

The retailer has more than 950 stores throughout the UK and recently pledged to invest £1.3 billion over the next two years.
