Aldi is offering employment to Ukraine refugees who have come to the UK as they seek refuge from the ongoing invasion by Russian military.

The discount retailer has over 8,000 roles available and says it will welcome applications from all Ukrainian refugees, subject to their eligibility for UK employment.
