Other roles, which can be applied for or registered for interest via Aldi’s recruitment website, include an e-commerce senior analyst, an ecommerce team leader and an e-commerce business development analyst.

Aldi CEO Giles Hurley claimed in December 2022 that Aldi had “big plans” to extend its click-and-collect initiative this year.

However, the discount grocer stopped home delivery of its ‘Specialbuys’ earlier this year as well as wine and spirits as it worked on keeping prices low.

Aldi also axed its click-and-collect service from 12 stores in July due to “insufficient demand” from shoppers.

The discounter said its click and collect service remains an ongoing trial and requires an active team to deliver it.

The offering first launched in 2020 allows customers to order products online and collect them in store.

It has since rolled out to over 200 of its 990 UK supermarkets.

This comes as Aldi is continuing its expansion drive and is to open 12 new stores across the UK before the end of the year, opening one new site a week on average.
